Have you been selected to be a bridesmaid? Are you unsure of your duties? Don’t know when to step in and help? Well, Brides Collective has come up with some essential bridesmaid tasks that will help you out with understanding your role as a bridesmaid.
First and most importantly, as a bridesmaid, you are there to help the bride. You can offer your assistance with a range of different errands. The bride is most likely going to be very busy, rushing around doing her own things prior to her wedding, and the least you could do is help the bride out by organizing stuff. Booking appointments, confirming RSVP calls, ringing up venues and photographers for confirmation are all simple tasks that greatly help out the bride. If you’re an extra helpful bridesmaid you could even organize the kitchen tea and the registry gift list.
Secondly, it is important that you obtain the contact number or email of the other bridesmaids. This is crucial as you don’t want to be spending time organizing an event that has already been done by another bridesmaid. Another reason you may need their contact details is so that you can all put in effort and time to organize the hen’s night. From sending out invites to booking the venue and organizing caterers and drinks, it will all be a lot of effort to do this on your own. So, that is why you will need the help of the other bridesmaids.
Last but not least, it is essential that you are there for the bride on the day of the wedding. Quite often the bride would expect you to be at her house prior to the ceremony, alongside with the other bridesmaids. At her brides house, you will help the bride prepare for the wedding and will get your hair and makeup done. Once at the ceremony, you must follow all the instructions given to you by the bride and follow the scheduled set of events that have been planned out. Once the ceremony is finished, the bridesmaids should wait until the bride and groom leave and then follow out after them. At the reception, you will most likely be expected to be seated at the head table and you must sit there.
After the wedding day, as a bridesmaid it would be kind of you to also offer that you get the bride’s wedding dress dry cleaned and safely delivered to her home while she is away on her honeymoon. You can also arrange for the thank you cards to be sent out to all the guests who attended the wedding day.
