If you could create a handbook for the job duties of a BM what would you include? I know we have some great girls on here trying to learn what is expected of them as a BM, and there are brides who are unsure of what is expected from their BMs.
Also, if you have any great suggestions, maybe you can add it to the wiki!: http://wiki.weddingbee.com/Bridesmaid

Hmm. There’s lots of stuff:
host/help with the shower
plan the bachelorette
shop for BM dresses
attend a bride’s final fitting (to learn how to bustle the dress)
buffer drama for the bride (BM squabbles, stuff that goes wrong on the wedding day, etc)
be ready in advance of the bride to help her get into her dress

Keep weird relatives (my mom) out of my hair…

This is a greally good question, Lillindy!

The best thing my BMs have done for me is be willing to listen/put up with my wedding talk 24/7. I mostly just need people to hug me when I’m freaking out … and occassionally some extra hands for DIY projects.
I promise to have more productive feedback on the BMs’ duties post-wedding!
