If you've been a bridesmaid, what did you wish the bride provided for you.

I’m editing my response…

Wanted to just point out that you could look up emergency kits and get some ideas from there!

Breakfast or lunch & champagne/wine while getting ready! One bride had mimosas and they were a HUGE hit. 

Some music to listen to really livens up the mood too :)

@nl:  Well, for every wedding I’ve been in, the morning consisted of hanging around together while each girl gets their hair and makeup done.  When I’m a BM, I like to bring champagne and orange juice for the morning getting ready for the bride and BMs to enjoy together.

As long as there is enough space for you guys to be together, food for everyone to eat, etc. you’ll be fine.  The only thing people need is their stuff to get ready, plus emergency kit stuff in case there are any issues. 

One thing you could bring is an iPod docker so that you can have fun listening to music while you get ready.

Other than that, not sure what else to suggest.

To be honest, I have never need any item that was in a wedding emergency kit.  I’m a grown woman and I have my own chapstick and there will always be TP around if I need to blow my nose.  Getting my dress paid for (or assisting to pay for it), hair and makeup, a massage or pedicure…these are all the things I really liked/wanted as a bridesmaid.

One thing I really appreciated was lunch! You run around all day and forget to eat. The last wedding I was in they ordered sandwiches and drinks.  The fmil made everyone sit and eat lol. Good thing bc it was an evening reception would’ve passed out without eating all day!

More champagne, and maybe some music.  I didn’t have any need for lip gloss, mints, etc because I have my own lip gloss/purse.  Lunch for sure.
