You are not just a bridesmaid: You are a therapist, personal shopper, secretary and straight up back-haver
Don't complain about your bridesmaid dress unless the bride has complained about it first
You all need to eat before the wedding. There’s an open bar ahead of you (see #8)
You are on lipstick patrol for the bride all night.
If a chatty Uncle is talking the bride’s ear off, step in and take one for the team
Nothing good can come from bringing up an ex during a wedding speech
If you are in the bathroom at the reception, check the stalls before you say anything about anyone
At no point should you be drunker than the bride
Dance with the least attractive, single groomsman at least once
Your problems do not exist on the wedding day. No whining allowed
If the dance floor is empty you know what to do
Being a bridesmaid is a tough job. They have to not only deal with buying bridesmaid dresses, plane tickets (if it’s a destination wedding), wedding shower and wedding gifts, but they have to make sure they’re 1,000% committed to everything you–the bride–wants and needs. It’s ain’t easy, as I’m sure you know if you’ve ever been a bridesmaid, but the reward is worth it if you successfully help your best friend get married.
