It may be your wedding, but that doesn’t mean you need to do it yourself. As a bride, you select bridesmaids for a reason – so don’t discount that value. Your bridesmaids are there for you, ready to help you do whatever it takes to pull off a great wedding. So, if you aren’t using this resource, here are 10 ways your bridesmaids are there to make your wedding planning and wedding day a breeze.
Your bridesmaids can be given the task of creating gift baskets or welcome notes for immediate relatives coming from out of town. These baskets show how appreciative you are that they have travelled to see the wedding, includes phone numbers and maps, and even suggestions for what to do while they are waiting for the wedding day.
Assisting with Wedding Invitations
While your maid of honour may be taking on a lot, have the bridesmaids help at wedding invitation day too. They can help address envelopes, bring snacks and entertainment and make the task of sending out invites a little easier.
Rehearsal Dinner Favours
While you don’t have to, supplying wedding favours at the rehearsal dinner can be a nice gesture. Put your bridesmaids in charge of creating the “thank you” notes and making guests feel special.
Bridesmaids can help you feel a little less stressed by providing you with distractions – especially the week of the wedding.
Keeping the Cup Full
At your wedding, bridesmaids are there to serve. Literally. Have one in charge of keeping your glass full – since you won’t have the time to get back to the bar yourself.
Disposable Camera Collection
If you’re doing disposable cameras as centerpieces, have one of your bridesmaids in charge of collecting them at the end of the night.
Collecting Other Items
Have another bridesmaid in charge of collecting the other stuff you need to keep, like your cake topper, toasting flutes, etc.
Dropping Off the Gown
While you are on a honeymoon, have one of your bridesmaids be in charge of taking your wedding dress to the cleaners and getting it preserved so that it is ready when you get home.
You will be frazzled by the time your honeymoon comes around. Have a bridesmaid go over your packing list to ensure you have packed everything you need for the trip.
Preparing Your Home
Bridesmaids can stock your fridge, clean up your house and prepare everything so that you don’t come home to a messy house.
