Bridesmaid Duties

As a Bridesmaid, do you know what your Duties are?

The bridesmaids make up the bride's support network; they do any and all needed tasks in the months leading up to and the day of the wedding. As the bridesmaids have fewer duties than the maid of honor they are expected to help the maid of honour as well, as required. Like the maid of honor the bridesmaids' most important responsibility is to provide the bride with moral support. This is a very stressful time for the bride. A positive attitude and a smile on your face will go a long way to relieve the bride's stress.
