Maid/Matron of Honor & Bridesmaids- Their Roles

Does your Maid/Matron of Honor & Bridesmaids know their roles for the wedding?

Typically they pay for their dresses and shoes, but what else are they expected do?

This is where the Bride thinks about the tasks and assistance she may need at an early stage.

How many times do you watch a wedding show and the Bride is complaining that her Bridesmaids are not around to help.

The things in these cases we have to consider are:
Did the Bride communicate that she would like help with favors/tasks?
How far in advance did she communicate with her ladies if at all?

When you ask your ladies to be a member of your wedding party make it fun and cute. Here is a nice poem you can print on pretty paper and send out to your ladies:

Are you great with words? Craft a special poem to ask your girls to stand next to you on your special day. If you are struggling, search the Internet for some ideas to get started!

You have always been there; you're more than just a friend.
You're the one that I can turn to; you'll be there 'til the end.
As I walk down the aisle, to begin my married life
Please be my bridesmaid, as I become a wife.
Here is a bracelet to wear when we're together
It's more than just a circle; it means we're friends forever!

This poem comes from Miami Wedding Helper . You can purchase a card with this poem and a hot pink rubber bracelet stamped with "Bridesmaid" for $5.

After all your ladies accept this honor of being your bridesmaids, have your Maid/Matron of honor host the first meeting to celebrate and keep your expectations from them overall with due dates of items clear while enjoying the celebration.

Don’t be a challenging bride with a million guidelines, the first meeting is not the time for that. You don't want them to run away.

Let your Maid/Matron of Honor lead the team as she is expected to do in her role.
Enjoy the planning process; you should not have to worry about the Bridesmaids.

Happy Planning!
