Pre-wedding duties

• Help her narrow choices for decorations and favors. Also, make sure the decorations are in on time for the wedding, shower and bachelorette parties.

• Pick up the bridesmaid dresses in a reasonable amount of time in case of additional fittings.

• If the groom is not interested in registering for gifts with the bride, offer to accompany her.

• Devising a seating arrangement can be a difficult process that you can help with. Draw out the tables and move people around until you have a close-to-perfect fit. Bring this drawing to the wedding just in case there are any mix-ups.

• Be a good communicator. Friends will appreciate if you help confirm plans for showers and parties as well as wedding-day information.

• Help where needed during the rehearsal dinner. Many times the bride, groom and their families are pre-occupied and forget about things, which is where you can save the day by being supportive.

• If you have good penmanship, volunteer to help address the invitations.

Wedding day duties

• The bride may want privacy on the big day. Take a minute and ask her if she needs some quiet time.

• You may be asked to be a witness in the signing of the marriage license.

• Before walking down the aisle, take a few deep breaths. Remember to walk slowly.

• Keep your eyes open for the unexpected, such as a vase of flowers falling over. If you are close enough, fix what needs to be fixed so the bride, groom and their families can focus on the ceremony.

• Take lots of photos. Share them with the couple after the event.

• Ask if the bride needs anything, such as food or water, all the way up to when she walks down the aisle.

• Provide moral support. Be a good listener throughout the process.㪒
