You’ve been asked by your best friend or sister to be a bridesmaid and although you’re super happy, you can’t shake off the feeling that you might screw up. Being a first-time bridesmaid can be nerve-wracking, which is why we have put together a list of rules for being the perfect bridesmaid.
There are different stages of being a bridesmaid, so we’ll be discussing each one.
Be There to Listen
The first step is the planning process. As soon as the wedding date is set, your bridesmaid duties start. You need to be super calm during all the madness and be there whenever the bride needs to vent, talk to someone or just needs some suggestions.
Be Smart About Bridesmaid Dresses
When it comes to picking out a bridesmaid dress, you need to be super smart. If there are a few bridesmaids, you need to have a discussion among everyone and pick something all girls would feel comfortable wearing.
Plan the Best Bridal Shower EVER!
Bridal shower is a super fun pre-wedding celebration, so go all out! Think about what the bride would like; a big party or a chill day at the spa with her besties.
Help Her Gather Inspiration & Ideas
Really get in there with the planning process, help your girl out with some ideas and inspiration for the big day. Follow a few wedding accounts on Instagram and make Pinterest boards. It’s also a good idea to attend wedding fairs.
