From personal experience, I can tell that choosing a bridesmaid is not an easy decision for a bride herself, as it is a very responsible thing. Without a doubt, being a bridesmaid is really exciting and so much fun, but it is also a real job to be a bridesmaid on a wedding. In fact, being a bridesmaid can be even somehow compared to signing- in for the part-time job. If you are going to be a bridesmaid, you should remember that on this day you will be one of the most important people for a bride, and you can make this day even more special for her. So, here are 4 things you have to do if you are a bridesmaid:
1. First of all, it is important for a bridesmaid to support the bride emotionally.
For each and every bride wedding day is very emotional one, full of different things, smiles, tears, etc. so, it is your job, as a bridesmaid to be the bride`s help and support. You should be a person who the bride can trust and even complain sometimes, as it happens sometimes too. The bride probably can’t complain to her groom, so it’s your job to listen to her, and to be her best friend during such situations. You can always say something comforting to a bride. For instance: “Wedding planning REALLY seems to be stressing you out. Let’s take a break from wedding tasks and go for a walk or something”
2. Help with all wedding tasks. Always know your strong sides; maybe there is something you can do to help the bride with the organization. Your individual skills and talents always matter. For example, you are good at crafts, don`t forget to tell it. Be active, and always be near the bride for helping with everything she needs.
3. Get ready with a bride on wedding day. The best thing you can do, as a bridesmaid is to be with her the whole day, starting from the morning. You can help her to prepare all small details, to do make-up, help with the wedding dress, set the right mood, etc. getting ready moment is very important for the whole day . The bridesmaids usually travel to the wedding ceremony with the maid of honour and the mother of the bride, as traditionally the bride goes with her dad. The bridesmaids should arrive at the ceremony ten minutes before the bride, so they can see her arrive.
4. And last, but not least don`t forget to celebrate this special day and to be the life and soul of the party. Make sure guests are having a good time, be the first on the dance floor, when no one wants to be, go first, and party all night long.
