What Does a Bridesmaid Do?
A bridesmaid is responsible for helping the Maid of Honor and, ultimately, the bride on her wedding day. She lends a listening ear and support when either of them need it. She helps plan and attends events like bridal showers, engagement parties, bachelorette parties, the wedding rehearsal, and the rehearsal dinner.
She offers to run errands to help with wedding planning and on the wedding day if they’re needed. She can help with addressing invitations or addressing and stamping thank you cards.
If the bride has a receiving line, the bridesmaids stand in the line with her to say hello to guests. Otherwise, she can mingle and talk to guests during the reception.
Bridesmaids often also stay until the end of the reception to help with transporting wedding gifts, clean up, and make sure any items left behind are returned to their owners.
How Many Bridesmaids is Too Many?
Typical weddings have between 3-5 bridesmaids, but the bride ultimately gets to decide how many bridesmaids she wants! An intimate wedding may have just one bridesmaid (or none at all), while a large wedding could have many more than five.
Can a Married Woman be a Bridesmaid?
Yes, a married woman can be a bridesmaid! Long ago, the role was reserved for unmarried friends and relatives of the bride, but that rule went out the door a while ago. You can choose anyone you’d like to be your bridesmaid.
How Soon After Getting Engaged Should You Ask Your Bridesmaids?
A general rule of thumb is to ask your bridesmaids between one year to eight months before your wedding. If you don’t have that long between your engagement and your wedding, give yourself a little time to make sure of your list and ask them as soon as you are certain.
How Much Should You Spend on Bridesmaid Proposal Gifts?
Bridesmaid proposal gifts are totally optional, which means you can spend what you want! If you’re planning to get bridesmaid gifts later on that are larger or more expensive, you can keep bridesmaid proposal gifts simple. If you have a larger budget and enjoy spoiling your friends – go for it!
What Should My Will You Be My Bridesmaid Proposal Message Say?
Each bridesmaid proposal message can be different for each of your friends, or you can give a card that says something like “I can’t say ‘I do’ without my crew!” and asks each person to be in your wedding party. Whether you choose to write an entire card on your own, or you choose a card or gift with a pre-printed message, take the time to write a note to your friends. It can be funny or sentimental, depending on your relationship with them! Either way, it will mean a lot to them to have a message from you, right from your heart.
