A bridesmaid plays a key role in any wedding – providing emotional support to the bride; helping with the planning process; and being involved in pre-wedding celebrations. Whether this is your first role as a bridesmaid or you’ve done this multiple times, here is a little guide to help you remember all the to-do’s.

Emotional support – Be there for the bride to provide emotional support throughout the planning process and especially on the day of the wedding.

Planning help – Offer to help the bride with a specific planning task such as stuffing invitations, or shopping for a certain wedding item.

Bridesmaid Dress – Find a bridesmaid dress and all accessories including shoes and jewelry. Purchase all the items, and make sure to break in your shoes before the day of the wedding.

Parties – Work with the other bridesmaids to help plan, host and pay for the bachelorette party and bridal shower.

Tracking gifts & RSVPs – Unless someone is already helping with this task, keep track of all the gifts received at all the pre-wedding events so that it’s easier for the couple to write thank-you notes; also keep RSVP lists.

Rehearsal – Attend the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. Also be aware of any other pre-wedding parties and try to attend as many as you can.

Last minute errands – Help with any last-minute errands, especially on the day of the wedding. Be ready to step in (if there is no wedding planner) to confirm flower delivery times and greet the ceremony officiant when they arrive.

Receiving line – Stand in the receiving line if the bride requests it.
Hosting duties – Help with hosting duties at the wedding reception by introducing guests, making sure they know where the bar is, and inviting them to sign the guest book.

Dancing – Help keep the party alive by getting out on the dance floor when the music begins, and dance with the groomsmen following the official first dance of the bride & groom. Keep an eye on guests who might need a little encouragement to get out on the dance floor.

Wedding gown – Help the maid of honor with wedding gown duties such as carrying or bustling the train, restroom visits, or helping fix the train if anything comes unhooked.

Wedding gift – Talk to the other bridesmaids about pitching in for a joint wedding gift. That way you can get more creative and come up with a great idea and with more buying power.

Tact – Even if you don’t like the bridesmaid dress, or if you get frustrated with anything else during the planning process, try not to complain about it and be as tactful as you can.
