Getting ready… The morning of the wedding
It makes sense for all the bridesmaids and pageboys to get dressed at the bridal home or wherever the bride is getting ready. This helps to prevent creasing of the wedding outfits and gives everyone the chance to make any last-minute adjustments.
If you’re chief bridesmaid (or Maid of Honour if you’re married), your role on the day is of utmost importance to the bride and the other attendants. You must maintain a calming influence throughout the day, and be as organised as possible.
On the morning of the wedding, you’ll need to ensure that everyone is where they should be, when they should be, and that the right clothes and accessories are ready for the right person.
Your other duties in the morning include: arriving at the bride’s house in plenty of time for the hairdresser and make-up artist being on hand to help dress younger attendants; looking after a handbag for the bride, containing tissues, blotting paper, and a lipgloss for touch ups throughout the day. We also recommend you pack an ‘emergency kit’ for the morning too – this could include plasters, some rescue remedy and of course a sewing kit incase any little clothing rips occur.
