Frequent user June 2018 Ontario


Taylor, on February 14, 2018 at 11:20 Posted in Before the wedding 0 14


We are not having a bridal party, just one witness each. Mine is my best friend, she is getting ready with me, and I got her a flannel shirt to wear that morning. I am getting "Bride" put on the back of mine. I am not sure what/if I should get on the back of hers. I could leave it blank, put her name, or put maid of honor even though technically she isn't.. Advice?

    I agree with most people - leaving it blank on the back and having the pocket with initials or something.

    I second this idea, who would wear a nice shirt out for dinner with bridesmaid across the back?

    Blank seems to trumping overall!

    What if you were to make it as a jersey writing with her last name on it and your wedding day number. That way its personalized to her.

    Leave it blank so she can wear it again.

    I think you should leave it blank in the back but have her initials put on the pocket. That way she can easily wear it again but it is also personalized.

    I agree with the others. A monogram or leaving it blank to be re-worn Ian a great idea. You could also put “bff” or “bestie” on it if it was small, like in the pocket or sleeve

    I agree with you! I would much prefer something subtle, like on the breast pocket, or just a blank shirt.

    If it were me, I would want to wear it again so I would prefer it blank or generic with initials or something, but not my name.

    I like the idea of using her initials! You could do her first initial or her monogram!

    You could have "BFF" or "BFF to BRIDE" put on. Something cute that recognizes her relationship to you and the importance to why she's there with you.

    Maybe is she has a nickname that she goes by, or even her initials!

    "bestie" or something similar would be cute. i always get nervous about putting people's names on shirts because then if they wear them in public, that could cause privacy issues.
