Congrats, You're a Bridesmaid. Here Are the Jobs You've Signed Up to and the unexpected ones that might come up on the big day.
7 Most Unexpected Wedding Jobs Every Bridesmaid Should Be Ready For
1. Breakfast planner
One of your first wedding jobs as a bridesmaid is in the morning before the celebration even begins. It’s your job to make sure the bride eats. A combination of nerves and excitement will most likely have dramatically reduced her appetite. That means she may not want to eat.
This is where you come in. Stock up on a few of her favourite snacks to tempt her taste buds or make her something extra special for her big day.
Make sure she’s hydrated too. If she doesn’t drink enough water, she might become dehydrated. This goes one of two ways: she might end up with a dehydration headache or alternatively, she might suddenly feel thirsty and over-compensate with the champagne.
2. Keep an eye on the flowers
Make sure you check the flowers every so often. Does the bouquet look like it’s beginning to wilt? What’s that abandoned buttonhole doing on the floor? Does the flower crown need a little spritz of water?
We know you’re not a florist. But it doesn’t hurt to keep checking on the blooms to make sure they still look fabulous.
