It's December and besides the savoury scents of the season, love is also in the air. We know how hectic planning the perfect wedding day can be, so during the month of December, we will be helping you with helpful tips and sharing nightmares and everything wedding. The gorgeous possibilities are endless.

Here is your trusty old friend, the Bridesmaid from Hell. I'm here again to tackle choices of bridesmaids and choices of dresses.

Please note, in selecting your bridesmaids, there are things to take into consideration: the style and the individual's religious background. Now if your religion allows you to go strapless but your best friend's does not, please respect this. Do not tell them to throw on a scarf.

This is not fair. You cannot ask them to give up what they believe for a day, just because it is your day. You are their friend, not their God. Just do not choose them for a bridesmaid. Let them give a toast - it does not make them any less of a friend if they cannot participate the way you want them to.

Then when it comes to people's body types and sizes, do not expect the dresses to look identical on us all.

Some of us are more voluptuous in some areas than others. So stop picking on the fluffy, curvy or voluptuous ladies, we cannot help it.
