Britain's Best Bridesmaid is back for 2019! Did someone in your #BrideSquad go above and beyond to make your big day memorable for all the right reasons? Now it's time to reward them.
The most prestigious award for UK bridesmaids has returned, this time with even more incredible prizes and five new categories.
Nominations are open, this year with a twist. Hen and stag expert Red7 has added five new categories to celebrate the amazing stories behind each wedding day.
Most extra: Your bridesmaid will have gone totally over the top to give your special day the wow-factor. Whatever she did, she'd better have gone extra!
Bringing the glamour: The bridesmaids that make the shortlist for this category will have added a touch of sparkle to the big day.
On a shoestring: Did your bridesmaid pull off an unbelievable hen do on a budget or find the perfect gown for a dream price? This category is here to celebrate bridesmaids that helped the couple's vision for the big day come true – without breaking the bank.
In the face of adversity: This category is here to celebrate bridesmaids that rose to the challenge and let nothing stand in their way, no matter how tough the situation.
Abroad: Pulling off a wedding in another country, without the comforts of home, is no mean feat! This category will recognise bridesmaids that took the distance in their stride.
After over 21 years in the business of pre-wedding partying, the team at Red7 knows a thing or two about what makes the ultimate bridesmaid. To reward her loyalty and commitment, the final winner will not just receive the coveted title of Britain's Best Bridesmaid 2019, she will receive a luxury pampering weekend for two. Each category will have its own winner. Then, Britain's Best Bridesmaid 2019 will be crowned from this cohort of elite 'maids.
Red7's head of Hen and Stag, Sarah Chapman, said: “Britain's Best Bridesmaid is all about celebrating the incredible things that we do when our besties need us most. Planning a wedding can be stressful and it's times like that when we really depend on our squad.
“Bridesmaids put so much energy into the big day, it's such a selfless act! The focus is usually on the bride, so it's only fair that we reward the sensational bridesmaids that work tirelessly to make the wedding day special.
“We love that we have been a part of so many hen, stag and 'sten' celebrations. We've been there with wedding parties throughout so many amazing and touching moments, not to mention the drama! We can't wait to read the awe-inspiring stories as we begin our hunt for Britain's Best Bridesmaid 2019!”
Britain's Best Bridesmaid 2018, Nicole Hutton, surprised her bestie Liz by secretly arranging for the entire wedding party to fly to Las Vegas for the ceremony. “I just wanted to give my best friend the best experience ever after she had been through a difficult time in her life. I know she would have done the same for me - that's what friends are for,” says Nicole. “Winning is the perfect end to a beautiful fairytale and I get to celebrate all over again with Liz!”
