7. Record a lovely message, save it on a USB stick and send it to your bridesmaids. Nigerian bride, Seun from #NiyiSeun2016 said; 

I wanted each of my bridesmaids to really understand how special and important they are to me. So I decided to record short videos sharing clips and images of our friendship over the years and how much they meant to me. I put each video on these tiny USBs and placed them in individual boxes [and] posted it to them. I cried recording the videos and even more while editing them. These girls are so important to me and I am so glad I get to share a very special day with them right beside me.
