On the big day, bridesmaids have lots to do! 

On the wedding day itself, bridesmaids have several important responsibilities.

You have to break down the timeline of the wedding day and detail what bridesmaids should expect, from helping the bride prepare to walking down the aisle and exiting. And of course, make sure the bride has fun celebrating the reception!

Ensure that you assist the bride with the last-minute tasks and that she feels supported and relaxed throughout the day.

Emotional Support And Positivity
