A bridesmaid is someone special. A friend who is tried and true.
So I couldn’t imagine getting married, without including you.

Useful Tips For The Bridesmaid

Today, life as a bridesmaid can still be tough, you may not be fighting against evil spirits, but you’ll be dealing with lots of stresses. To help keep things as simple as possible, we have put together some useful tips.

Plan as soon as you can

The wedding may be twelve months away, but don’t be fooled. Get organised as early as you can so that you can keep stress levels low and have a bit of flexibility to deal with unexpected changes. First, get the contact details for all the bridesmaids and put these on a spreadsheet. Create a time-line of all events, from shopping for the dress (and additional fittings) searching for flowers, when you’re going round to the bride’s house to stuff the wedding invitations into envelopes as well as the date for the hen do, visits to venues and everything else.

This is the time to have lots of conversations with the bride and other bridesmaids to work out what the bride expects and what each bridesmaid will be doing. This will save a lot of unnecessary stress. If there is a Maid of Honour or Chief Bridesmaid, field questions through her so that the bride isn’t being bombarded by each bridesmaid individually. This will be good practice for the wedding day when the bride should be left to enjoy her day and not deal with any queries. This doesn’t have to be set in stone, the bridal party can split responsibilities any way they wish.
