Congrats, you are getting married and choose your bridal party OR Congrats, you have been chosen to be a part of someone’s big day! No matter how you have landed here, we are glad that you did.
Planning a wedding can be stressful along with everyday life. You may have chosen and invited your bridesmaids to stand beside you on your special day, exciting and but now you have lots of questions. If you are looking for guidance on how to handle your bridesmaids or if you have been asked to be a Maid of Honor or Bridesmaid here are the 3 P’s to follow to be an amazing Bridesmaid.
It is not uncommon for a bridal party to have financial responsibilities when it comes to being in a wedding. Unless stated otherwise, it is safe to assume you will have to (gasp) budget for certain things.
Of course, planning requires, well, planning. There are aspects of the bride’s engagement journey that bridesmaids will plan and take care of.
Bridesmaids are usually the charge of pre-wedding celebrations such as the Bridal Shower and Bachelorette Party. As we talked about it earlier, make sure to allocate some of the budget to this as well. Generally, bridesmaids pay for these expenses.
Now that you have ordered your attire and have planned the pre-wedding celebrations it is time to prepare for wedding weekend duties. These are typical duties for the Maid of Honor and Bridesmaids.
This list below is inclusive but does not limit any other designated duties. Remember to check with the Bride for anything else she may need assistance with (especially if she doesn’t have a planner):
Being a bridesmaid is more than parties and standing at the altar in a pretty dress. You have a list of tasks and responsibilities to your close friend or sibling that will aid them in having the best day ever, all while celebrating with them. This list is not comprehensive; it is a guide check with the Bride she may add or delete items.
If you have any other questions, whether you are a Bride or a Bridesmaid, please feel free to contact us. Who knows, maybe we could add another “P”. HAPPY PLANNING!
