I’d suggest something like this –

Name:

Occupation:

Hometown:

Hobbies:

How You Know the Bride:

One Random/Funny Fact About Yourself:

I guess I’ve never been curious enough to want to know more about the attendants than them being listed as “friend of bride” “cousin of bride” “sister of bride.” Though, I can see why they may want some guidance.  I’m not sure how to make it sound like anything but the blurb that the Miss America contestants have as they walk down the runway. “Bridesmaid A is a graduate of the brides alma mater. They bonded over beer pong as little sisters to a fraternity. Her favorite activites are gourmet cooking and running. When not making 6 figures as a law partner, she a volunteers time with Big Sisters.”

I’d skip it and just have name, how they know you, and one interest/hobby/lesser known fact. Don’t make it more than a couple of lines.

I think it should be short and sweet. For example “Kacy is bride’s friend from college. Currently she’s saving lives as a resident at Presbyterian Hospital. Her big hobby is walking trails around national parks of America.”

or “Josie is bride’s younger sister. She’s kicking ass as band assistant at her first job. Her hobbies include music, swimming in the ocean and spending time with her family.”

 

A little bit Miss America 😉 But well, I don’t think it’s entirely avoidable. 

 

Sorry for my English and kind of ridicolous examples. 😉 But it is to give you example that you can just write very short and sweet text – just two, most three sentences with name, how they know you, what they do in their lives (if that’s important for them) or what their hobbies are.

It’s a wedding website, not a resume. details are not that important. just write one sentence for each bridesmaid and be done with it.

Some people just say how they met the bridal party member, or how long they’ve been friends – which I think is fun to know.

I just put their names and their relation – since it was just my sister and now-SIL. Putting Sister of the Bride and Sister of the Groom was pretty self-explanatory.
