10 Essential Responsibilities for your Bridesmaids!

Your bridesmaids are your go-to-girls during the wedding planning process, as well as the wedding day. There a number of responsibilities and duties that your bridesmaids should have, so make sure both you and your team of ladies are completely clued up!

Get Delegating!

First things first, delegate various tasks and responsibilities to each of your bridesmaids. This will get everyone involved, and they’ll feel super special knowing they’re taking care of a certain aspect of your wedding day. Whether it’s helping you put together your centrepieces or collecting your decorations, your bridesmaids are there to lend a helping hand.

Wedding Dress Shopping

Your bridesmaids will love coming with you to help you find your dream wedding dress. You may have spotted our blog post bursting with advice about wedding dress shopping, and we mentioned that sometimes it can be a little overwhelming for the bride-to-be if she’s brought a huge entourage along. If you’ve got a larger group of bridesmaids, it may just be worth bringing your maid of honour along. However, a smaller group of bridesmaids will be able to offer their opinions and thoughts, and they’ll love helping choose a style to suit you.

Fitting the Dress

You’ll definitely need your team of ‘maids on hand to help fit your wedding dress on the morning of the big day. Why not ask your photographer to capture this special moment on camera too?

The Hen Party

Planning a wedding is extremely stressful, so the last thing you need to do is plan a hen party as well! Leave this task to your bridesmaids. Not only will they have some serious fun planning your hen weekend, it’ll mean it’s a complete surprise for you! You can always let them know in advance if there are activities you’d love to do, or if there is anything you want to avoid at all costs.

Get Your Groove On

Give your bridesmaids the task of getting all of your guests up on their feet and dancing! No-one wants to be the first person breaking out the moves, so ask your best girls to invite people onto the dance-floor to get the party started.

DIY Duties

DIY weddings are becoming more and more popular with brides and grooms. DIY details give your wedding a personal touch and they’re often a much more purse-friendly option. We love the thought of organising DIY evenings with your bridesmaids. Get everyone stuck in and you’ll find that it all gets done much quicker, and it’s a chance for a gossip and a glass of wine. Sounds like perfection, right?

Organisation

Chances are, your wedding guests will be asking a lot of questions on your wedding day. From directions, timings to what’s on the menu! Make sure your best girls know exactly what’s going on, where and when so they can let your guests know. We think it’s unlikely you’ll have the time to answer any questions!

Emergency Kit

Ask your bridesmaids to put together an emergency bridal kit. We’re talking hairspray, make-up and even a sewing kit – anything that might help to avoid any potential disasters on your wedding day! You never know when it may come in handy, and you’ll definitely feel relieved to know it can all be taken care of.

Pre-Wedding Nerves

Those pre-wedding jitters will probably start kicking in the night before or the morning of your wedding. Get your ‘maids to make sure you stay calm. They’ll be there to support you, while topping up your make-up as a result of those happy tears!

Clean Up Operation

It’s not the most exciting part of the wedding planning process. In fact, it’s probably the most annoying part but it’s something that needs to be sorted. Make sure your bridesmaids are on-hand the morning after the big day to help clean up the wedding venue. Whether it’s taking down the decorations or collecting the last few slices of your wedding cake, make sure your girls are happy to help out.
