If you are invited by your friend who is about to get married to be her bridesmaid, you must help her with whatever she needs for her big day.

1.If your bride asks you to help her with ideas where to be the wedding, explore different places. It is a good idea that you drive so she can look at every place.

2. You can help when choosing the invitations. If your handwriting is beautiful you can help addressing the invitations if the bride agrees.

3. Your girlfriend may need help when ordering and choosing the decoration, your opinion may be useful when taking decisions and doing the different tasks.

4. The biggest pleasure is to go with the bride when choosing the wedding dress.

5. Buy the dress soon enough before the wedding so you can fix it if necessary.

6. Help the bride for the idea for setting the guests around the tables. It could be easier especially when there are many people, if you make the sketch of the location and carry it in the day of the wedding.

7. Help when planning, organizing and conducting the bridal shower.
