#2 be a go with the flow bridesmaid
Wedding planning can be totally random and dynamic. It is impossible to be prepared 100 percent of the time. Dates, times and events will change. Go with the flow for the bride-to-be and you will instantly become her favorite fun bridesmaid. Why? Because you put her at ease and aren't causing extra stress.

#3 just do it for her
You know when you say to someone, "let me know if you need any help." Typically they will never ask you for help and will just do it themselves. Offer up to help the bride-to-be with specific wedding tasks. Like let me help you find a rehearsal dinner location. Be specific.
Below is a list of things we know require a bit of man power. Trust us, the tasks are endless! Photo above captured by

1. Stuff the wedding invites
2. Help with DIY projects
3. Open up wedding invites to check RSVPs
4. Update the wedding website with all the wedding info
#4 it's her bachelorette party
Everybody has their vision of their perfect wedding, bridal shower and of course bachelorette party. Be sure to add her to the conversation and throw her events that are so her. My idea of a perfect bachelorette party would be hanging out with my girls and just relaxing by the pool.
#5 don't bitch about the dress
Lucky for you we collaborated with Dessy to create some very cute bridesmaid dresses that are affordable. Remember they are under $150 and we have a ton of styles. You can see all the looks and combinations here. You're welcome, you won't have to bitch about the dress! Sadly some of you bridesmaids out there won't love your dress that the bride-to-be picked out for you - but refer above and go with the flow.
Technically it is the only thing you really have to do for her. Wear the dress and suck it up. If it it's not your color, style or cut just put it on and smile for the camera. It's only day and we really want to be a fun bridesmaid.
