Brides, as much as you want your wedding to be the best day of your life, a lot of it starts with your bridesmaids. No one wants to be treated like a servant or lady-in-waiting, especially when they have jobs, families, and budgets. To that end, be mindful of what you say because NO one wants to hear these annoying phrases.
Of all the participants in a wedding, the maid of honor or matron of honor (if she’s already married) carries the mother lode of all duties. Scary, right? It doesn’t have to be! As long as you remain active in every facet of planning and become the go-to point person on the big day, aka memorize the timeline inside and out, you’ll do an A+ plus job in our books.
