KitSnicket:  One of my MOHs helped us assemble favours, and the other helped us assemble our orders of service and menus. That said, both were done before the wedding day, so the most onerous task they had to deal with on the wedding day was to make sure I ate and didn’t go crazy from wedding day nerves 😀

Maguerite:  It might be a cultural thing, but if I’m wrong, then all of my friends and family members were just really good at telling convincing lies when they seemed excited for our wedding 🙂

I had more people offering to help than I had tasks to give them (we’d chosen venues that needed very little done to them, and the reception venue staff did what little decoratioin we needed). My MOHS, my brother and his wife, as well as the best man and his wife, and a few of my close friends all asked if they could help in some way. In the end, and because they genuinely wanted to help, I found things for them to do. None of the tasks were very large ones, but having someone else either help with them, or them for us made us feel incredibly fortunate and loved.

To be honest if I were your bridesmaid and you DIDNT ask me, I might be kind of offended. As silly as that sounds..If you picked me to be part of your special day I would want to do everything I could (without putting my family out/going broke) to make your day perfect! I would expect to be part of the tedious tasks like picking things up, making decorations, setting up, taking down etc as long as it were reasonable. I don’t see the issue with you asking them.
