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
