If you’ve been dreaming about the details of your wedding for years now, or even if you don’t have a date picked out or a ring on your finger, you’ve still likely played out the entire day in your mind before. How you’ll enter the reception, what hairstyle you’ll have, and even who will be sitting closest to you!
One of the most memorable and cherished elements of your wedding festivities is being able to spend those memorable times with your closest friends.
Bridesmaids play an important role in the celebration. From providing emotional support and running errands leading up to the big day, to ensure the dream vision you had for your wedding party and even making your photographs come to life.
If you’ve been asked to be a bridesmaid or are considering who to ask to be part of your wedding, here are some of the key responsibilities of a bridesmaid worth knowing.
Duties of a Bridesmaid
- Listen, Assist & Comfort
One of the most important roles to be played as a bridesmaid is to offer support, suggestions, and to help comfort a bride as she navigates the details to create her very special day. Be ready to lend an ear on what linen colors or cake flavors to go with and be willing to assist without adding any additional stress.
- Offer a Helping Hand with Tasks
Every bride is different. Some will want to handle tasks on their own to ensure everything is done as they please. Others will want help sending out invites, maintaining guest lists, and assisting in a number of different ways.
- Dedicate Time for Wedding Festivities
There is more to celebrate than just the actual nuptials for a wedding. Most brides will also have a bridal shower, bachelorette party, and maybe even a pre-wedding day gathering where her bridesmaids will be expected to participate and maybe help plan.
- Know & Follow Through with Specific Wedding Day Duties
On the day of the actual wedding and when the ceremony is happening, bridesmaids will play the important role of walking down the aisle before the bride, accompanying others on the dancefloor, and taking lots of pictures. If you’ll be a bridesmaid, be prepared to smile and accommodate for these first few hours of the big day.
