“Be ready to answer random texts at random times asking your opinion about flowers, fonts, & centerpieces.” – Jessica B.


“Be the Swiss Army knife of bridesmaids. Bobby pins, extra pair of flats, flute of champagne…check, check, check!” – Ashley B.

“Do your best to be a calming presence with a mimosa in your hand and a smile on your face.” – Natalie B.

“Don’t just be available — be eager to help!” – Ashley F.
