The complete guide to being the perfect chief bridesmaid

You get to show beside the bride in the best wedding photos... is this all there is to being the chief bridesmaid?

The bride and her bridesmaid

So, somehow in the long history of weddings, the bridesmaids and the chief bridesmaids were introduced into the mix.

For the chief bridesmaid, there are some expectations that you might be required to meet.

To be regarded as the perfect bride, you will be required to do some or maybe all of the things listed below;

Lead the other bridesmaids

From the title, you can easily tell that while you will be beside the bride, you are also part of the bridesmaids.

So, even if it is on few occasions, try to ask how the bridesmaids are doing. Your major responsibility will be to be by the bride’s side but you should also take time to see how the bridesmaids are doing. If they have been fed, etc.

Get shopping

The wedding shopping is going to involve you a lot. So get yourself prepared to assist the bride in choosing dresses, both for herself and the other bridesmaids.

Except where the bride specifically asks you not to bother, you are meant to be available for these things.

Offer a helping hand

If there is any other thing needed to be done, the bride will appreciate your availability to get them done.

At some point, someone might even ask if you are the one getting married. You might want to be that serious about your duties.

Be the shoulder to cry on

Brides are hyped up with emotions leading up to the wedding, so whenever the bride has a complaints, worried tears, and a shoulder to cry/lean on, you earn yourself great points for being there for her on most of those occasions.

The Party Planner

Be ready to be chief planner for the bachelorette party, bridal shower and any other events the bride would like to host before her big day.
