We're Having a Twitter Party!

Behind every beautiful BG bride is a supporting case of girlfriends, sisters, or relatives who painstakingly helped her plan all of the exquisite details of her wedding day. We're honoring all of the MOHs and 'maids out there who have endured days of trying on dress after dress, gluing and assembling DIY projects, and lending an empathetic ear to inevitable meltdowns, all so that the big day goes off without a hitch.

The BG editors have teamed up with wedding guru Sharon Naylor to host an exclusive live chat on Twitter, where you can get personalized advice about all of the major elements involved with being in the bridal party! So, please plan to spend your lunch hour with us on Thursday, August 11 at 2 pm EST, where we'll cover the 3 "B"s: bridesmaid dress shopping, throwing a bridal shower, and planning the bachelorette party.

Brides-to-be, chime in with your most pressing dilemmas and etiquette Q's—what to do if bridesmaids are clashing, how much should their dresses cost, and more—and we'll help you out! Best of all, you can enter to win prizes instantly! What we're giving away:
