Being a bridesmaid is a total honor and the chance to make lifelong memories with your best friend as they marry.

Be her emotional rock
Planning a wedding is an extremely emotional moment, and the bride will need your support both in the months leading up to and on the day of the wedding. It’s nice for the bride to know that her bridesmaids are present as her closest friends and best supporters.
Be Ready for Your Wedding Duties
On the wedding day, you can do useful things to make sure the bride is comfortable, happy, and has everything she needs throughout the wedding. These can be thoughtful things like checking if the bride is hydrated, keeping her calm and collected, checking if her makeup and hair are still okay, helping her to the restroom, or acting as a point of contact for the guests.
Plan the Bridal Shower
One of your roles and responsibilities is to help plan and organize the wedding party with the bride. The bride chose her best friends and close relatives so it is expected that you know her tastes and expectations. Be useful when suggesting places, activities, dates, restaurants, beverages, etc., and also be ready to pay or share the bill as you participate in the fun.
While there may be tears, tantrums, extreme highs, and subsequent lows in being involved in someone’s wedding, being a bridesmaid is as enjoyable as you make it!
