Here are a few things that we think you can help the bride in her wedding journey!
Help with any DIY things the bride may want to do. Even if it is just stuffing envelopes, make a girl’s night and help her out with those tedious tasks! She WILL appreciate it!
Help with communicating with the rest of the bridal party. She is going to need your help with the weekend of details and such and it will slip her mind about communicating with everyone else. My biggest thought was “Everyone knows I made this decision” when in fact, I haven’t even told my fiancé I did it! Her mind will be all over, again help her regroup! While we love our fiancé’s their answer seems to always be “whatever you want” when you really need someone to say “are you sure you want to use ALL of those colors?”
Help her triple check that she has everything she needs to pack for the wedding weekend and honeymoon! Make sure you have your things as well, but make sure she has checked and re-checked her checklist and loaded it in the car just in case!
For the day of, carry her bouquet in pictures, her lip gloss, TISSUES, and keep both of you hydrated! She will have no problem leaning on you pre-ceremony and enjoy it! It is a tough task being a MOH, you don’t just show up with support you give yourself as well throughout the whole engagement and wedding.
Boy do us brides really appreciate all of our bridesmaids help! I do not know what I would have done without my entourage! They kept me supported and sane! I love them dearly and even if we forget as bride’s to express our gratitude the weekend of, just know, you were a vital part of our sanity through all this planning!
