Tips for How to Be the Best Bridesmaid Ever

Be the Bride’s Eyes and Ears

“A photographer will be around most of the day, there are so many memories to capture. Having a bridesmaid who is familiar with wedding guests and can help keep things energetic, fun, and on schedule is every bride AND photographer’s dream! Having another bridesmaid on the look out for the little things the day of the wedding is also so important. Keep on eye on the bride and when she needs her bouquet held, train picked up, a tissue, makeup/hair fix. Bridesmaids have a big role of keeping the bride a priority and helping create lasting memories and beautiful photographs to look back on!” – Courtney, Owner of Courtney June Photography

“Event planners aren’t just for the bride and the wedding day. Bridesmaids can use an event planner for coordinating the bridal shower, bachelorette party, or a dress shopping brunch.  A wedding planner can help you find the perfect location for the guest list, help you design a theme around the event, provide insight into cost and deals/promotions going on, and help with choosing ideal vendor partners for the event.  They have experience with all types/styles of events, so utilize their expertise to help you throw a stress-free, fun event for the group.” – Jaime Engebretson.
