I am a bridesmaid in my friend’s wedding on July 1st of this year. I have never been a bridesmaid before. We all have our dresses, but so far there has been no discussion about what shoes/accessories we need to buy, where we are supposed to get our alterations, how make-up and hair is being done (are we doing it ourselves? If not, who is paying for it?). When do you normally get details on these things? And how soon before the wedding do you normally find out what all is expected of you? The wedding is on a Thursday and I sometime soon I will need to know how much time I’ll need off work that week.

I think it depends on the bride. I told my girls very early on what to expect. The best thing to do would be to just ask the bride. Maybe she hasn’t thought about it, or maybe she’s leaving it up to you. I”m sure she’ll appreciate you asking.

I told my bridesmaids about 6 months out. I do think since you have less than two months left it’s a good idea to ask the bride for these details. She may be overwhelmed with all the other planning tasks she has going on and would probably appreciate a reminder from you.

It varies really. I would just ask the bride to find out exactly what the details are.
