Venus' Guide To Bridesmaiding, A Guest Post

I'm going to be at L's (Tom's sister) bachelorette party all weekend and I'm leaving you with a guest post from one of my absolute FAVORITE bloggers, Sarah from Venus Trapped in Mars. She's also an incredible designer and you should probably go check that out too. I took notes and will be sure to keep all of these things in mind while trying to be the best bridesmaid I can be. If you're obsessed with Sarah after this post, don't be alarmed. It's a natural reaction.

While Adriana is hopefully in crazy, balls-to-the-wall party girl mode for her friend's bachelorette party, today you're stuck with me, Sarah, from Venus Trapped in Mars! Seeing as I've attended many-a-wedding, I'm here to bring Adriana (and you!) some tips for being the perfect bridesmaid or wedding guest! 

Spend the entire time on your cellphone.
 This really lets the other wedding guests know that you are a big shot. And after all, the Bride is lucky to have you take time out of YOUR day to come to her wedding. 
This is an old picture. No I'm not living in 2013 using a razor phone. So shush.
Be sure to spill your drink all over yourself. 
This let's the bride and groom know that the drinks they are serving are SO GOOD that you wanted to take some home with you to enjoy for later! 

Hide Your Face
Hello. It is the bride's day, NOT YOURS. Hide your face anytime the photographer comes near you by flashing a peace sign or just shoving your hands in the camera. All the celebrities are doing it. This will allow the bride and groom to shine. She will thank you for only being able to see your hands.

Just Dance Like You're in the Club
The bride will want you to feel comfortable, relaxed and like yourself. Forget dancing cheek to cheek, romantically, dance cheek to cheek, club-like. With your butt. You will be far more in your natural element bumping and grinding hardcore. Do what comes naturally to you. Do it for the bride. 

Get on the Microphone As Often As Possible
This shows the bride and groom how much you love them. Bring something with you to say, make inappropriate jokes or just wing it and say what's on your mind. And by all means, be honest. If you hate something, let everyone know. Honesty is always the best policy. 

If You Are Tired, Go To Sleep
No one likes a party pooper. So if you are tired, don't stay awake complaining, bitching and moaning. Just go to bed right where you are, no one needs to deal with a crabby appleton.
