Top Tips to be the Best Bridesmaid Ever
Be excited – you might feel like you’ve been a bridesmaid more times than you’ve had wedding breakfasts now, but it’s still a big deal for the bride who has asked you to share in her special day, so try and be excited for her.
Be helpful – don’t agree to be a bridesmaid if you’re not willing to pitch in and help out. Quite often the bride is happy to just have her girls there to share in her day, but sometimes you might be asked to do some DIY or assist with the planning – help out with a smile where you can!
Think about the extras – it’s not enough to just turn up at the hen party and wear a sash – think about what you can do to go the extra mile to make the hen party extra special, whether that’s researching cocktail games or putting together a book of heartfelt messages from the other bridesmaids.
Be a team player – even if you don’t know the other bridesmaids, throw yourself into working with them. This is an opportunity to help your bestie and make some new friends!
Be available for non-wedding tasks – sometimes everyone needs a break, so be around for trips to the cinema or for coffee where the W word is banned.
