Being bridesmaid does not only require you to dress up prettily and pose for photos but also take up responsibilities so that things run in a smooth way. Here are some bridesmaid duties that you should take up.
Coordinate Transport and Accommodation: You should not leave the train tickets and hotel bookings until the wedding is over. In case, the bride is not able to do it for you, you should get it done. Supporting the bride is a part of your job, so you should turn up on time for her hair and makeup. You need to book things in advance and double check to know everything is done.
Final Arrangements: You should take the phone away from the bride or get her delegate some logistics to her close family members. You should take time to chill out so that you do not get into great stress. You need to make a list of the final tasks along with the bride well in advance before the wedding including the order of events, transportation to the church or venue, etc.
Attend The Pre-Wedding Events: Based on the wedding, you need to attend a rehearsal, ceremony, rehearsal dinner, or bridesmaid brunch. Ensure that you note all these in your diary and bring forward a bridesmaid speech in case it is needed.
Make A Wedding Day Survival Kit: It is a part of your duty to plan the wedding day disasters such as stains, broken heels, rips, nail chipping, etc. Keep in mind that you will not carry a handbag when you are in the aisle or wedding photos. You need to have a survival kit including safety pins, lipstick, dental floss, face powder, stain remover pads, sewing kit, tissues, and pilasters. The other things that you need to store in this kit depend on the weather and the dress.
