Do you mean like a checklist of to-do’s? I use the one from the Knot, and it includes etiquette “duties” (gifts, taking bridesmaids to lunch, etc) in addition to practical items.

Your duties before the wedding or the day of?  The day of, honestly, you should be having people help you because you are going to be so nervous and will forget things if you are on your own!

I don’t think there is anything you need to do specifically to thank them.  You could always have a luncheon or something after the wedding with all your girls as a thanks for helping you with everything.

Write thank you notes!  Simple, but very important.  A luncheon would be very nice, but I don’t know that it’s necessary.  If you’re able to, it’d be great to pick up their hair and nails day of.

I think personal thank yous are ideal for those who helped out a lot on the day of.  For your bridesmaids, gifts would be enough–they are there to support you!

I second the personal thank you notes!

Thank you notes, help out with costs when you can, thank-you gifts to parents, wedding party. That’s pretty much it. Oh, and say hello to all guests!

I think just acknowledging that people are helping/involved is super important, thoughtful gifts are always nice but just expressing your appreciation makes all the difference. Other than that, I think making sure you get your Thank You notes out ASAP and not acting like a total bridezilla.
