We’re one step closer to crowning our winner, the final seven are in the final race for the title.

Not only will the winning bridesmaid receive the prestigious title of Britain’s Best Bridesmaid (and major bragging rights), but she will also be whisked away on her very own ‘BridesmaidMoon’, a fantastic Red7 cruise to Bruges and Amsterdam.

These ladies showed creativity and dedication when it came to taming their bridezillas. Grand gestures and surprises proved a popular way to a bride’s heart.


The seven regional winners, who are in the running for the number one spot are…


Amanda Wane – Dumbarton

Bride Leanne was in the dark when it came to her hen do – literally! Amanda, was on a mission to surprise her friend, and so she picked her up from the train station, blindfolded her, put earphones in her ears and placed things on her head to distract her throughout the taxi ride to a secret destination.

When they reached Edinburgh Airport, Leanne was allowed to take off her blindfold. To her surprise, seven of her good friends and family were stood in front of her – all dressed in berets and neck scarves. Instead of a spa weekend Leanne was told they were actually off to Paris!




Charlotte Webb – Pontypool

Doting mother and psychiatric nurse, Charlotte, went above and beyond for bride Victoria, organising a surprise hen do in Newquay. Victoria thanked her chief bridesmaid for “being the woman I am today” by showing her what “true confidence, self esteem, unconditional friendship” was, as well as teaching her “how to chat up guys”!




North East

Nicole Hutton – North Yorkshire

Nicole had only three weeks notice to organise Elizabeth’s hen do as she was getting married in Vegas. The hen party was scheduled to take place in Las Vegas too, but Nicole pretended she couldn’t afford the flight.

Secretly she’d organised with Elizabeth’s fiance that would fly to Vegas before the rest of the group, surprising bride-to-be at the airport when the landed with a limousine and champagne. Nicole organised everything perfectly for the big day and more importantly “came dancing with me on a bar and fought to the death for the bouquet”. She then kept ten “‘fairly’ (!) drunk people together around Vegas without any of us getting lost or arrested”, and booked a party bus to take them all back to the Bellagio Hotel for more champagne.



North West

Sarah Tuesday Wilson – Manchester

Sarah’s father was terminally ill when she was a bridesmaid to bride Rebecca. But despite going through such a difficult time, Sarah was the perfect bridesmaid, attending dress fittings, sending texts, emails and suggestions throughout the run up to the big day. She not only “did everything and more” for the bride, but also supported the groom, checking he was OK, being the messenger between the two newly-weds-to-be.

The night before the wedding, in the bridal suite, Rebecca was giving her bridesmaids a special box of presents, but as she did so, the bed gave way from underneath them, turning “an intimate moment [into] a hilarious moment”.

First thing in the morning, Sarah run over to the venue in her bridesmaid PJs to ask them to fix the bed so the bride and groom didn’t have to sleep on the floor on their wedding night.



Jamie Leigh Branston – Leicester

Jamie, sister of the bride and mother of five, “threw herself into my wedding helping me plan (…) every detail. She created the bouquet herself, as well as lending her house for hair and makeup.”Jamie also  kept Rachel calm when the “unthinkable happened” and her wedding dress broke, coming up with a solution as the bride was having a  “full-scale meltdown”.  Jamie then helped convince the venue to marry the couple –  after the bride was so late it very nearly didn’t happen!



South East

Angela Bubb – Gillingham

Angela organised two hen parties for sister-in-law and bride-to-be Chelsea, as well as taking the time to create a “wonderful book” for friends and family to sign before her big day in Turkey.

Disaster struck when friends and family arrived a week before the wedding only to be struck down with sickness and diarrhoea. Then, two days before the wedding, Chelsea’s brother-in-law called her to let her know that Angela had slipped whilst running, had been sick and wouldn’t wake up. She was rushed to hospital where she was found to have fractured her skull and had bleeding on the brain. She was kept in overnight, and discharged the evening of the wedding. Chelsea thought that she wouldn’t be able to attend the wedding “let alone be a bridesmaid”, but “she walked down the aisle as my bridesmaid and stood there through all the photos with a smile on her face even though she was in so much pain.” It turned out she was also pregnant!



South West

Amy Hookway – Newquay

Despite living so far apart, Amy was an “easy choice” for bride Abbie. She “made every effort to get all of the bridesmaids together for fittings, could tell when I was at my lowest and most stressed with planning and would just arrange a get together for everyone’s have fun!”

She also managed to organise thirteen hens from all over the country to book flights and hotels for Abbie’s hen party – no mean feat. Amy also “arranged for me to wear a bracelet that belonged to our beautiful friend who sadly isn’t with us anymore which was the icing on the cake for me”. Even after her chief bridesmaid duties were done, she still sends Abbie little photo reminders of her special day.





Best of luck to our seven nominees!

The winning bridesmaid will receive an incredible prize – a cruise for two to beautiful Bruges and happening Amsterdam. After taming the bridezilla, this mini ‘BridesmaidMoon’ is the perfect reward. For more information on Red7 and its services, please visit
