7 Signs You're Being a Good Bridesmaid

By Lindsey Sachs

I've had the honor of being a bridesmaid over the years and from personal experience, it's an incredible opportunity to deepen your bond with the bride not only surrounding the wedding, but as life takes shape after the wedding through wifehood, motherhood and everything in between. 

A bridesmaid represents an individual who has shared quality life experiences with the bride in the years leading to her marriage. In being selected as a bridesmaid, this is an indication that the bride sees you as an important part of her inner circle honoring the past, the present, and the future of your relationship. This role assumes you’re there for her through thick and thin, when life brings triumphs and also when she needs support through the trying times. You’re a close witness to her marriage and considered a lifelong support system and positive champion of their marriage.

With many couples celebrating a recent engagement, you may find yourself invited to serve as a bridesmaid in the near future. We teamed up with Jenn Sinrich for Wedding Wire to help those bridesmaids-to-be out there. This is a must-read for expert tips, thoughtful considerations and what to expect in your bridesmaid role.

One of our favorite tips? 

Given your relationship with her (the bride) and knowing her authentic personality, you have the leeway to remind her what is important (a.k.a. don’t sweat the small stuff) and also ensure that she’s making decisions that are authentic to her and her partner,” says Sachs.
