Make sure there’s food available for the bride and entourage to eat – it’s one of the things that gets overlooked. My friend’s personal assistants were supposed to get lunch for the bridal party, but took too long looking at wedding dresses for themselves (long story) so we had peanut butter sandwiches at 2pm (right before the ceremony) after nothing to eat since 7am. And then dinner wasn’t until 7pm. It was awful.

I’m pretty sure I was FSIL’s personal assistant and was just never asked officially. (I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man too!) :/ 

I ended up 

-picking up bagels and cream cheese & coffee for all the girls at about 11 am 

-getting people drinks

-showing them where they could change/where things were 

-carrying the veil and hairpiece to the ceremony location

-calling the guys to coordinate

I 2nd the getting people food! It’s never a priority and whenever I’m a Bridesmaid or Best Man I’m always STARVING all day as no one thinks to get food and other things are more important. Becuase of this I have decided to sleep at the hotel the night before my wedding and order room service ahead of time.

Other things I would recommend would maybe be to have an emergency kit with like sewing stuff, scissors (I guarantee someone will need scissors!), water, makeup bag, change of shoes for the bride, an extra garter, everyone’s cell phone #’s. And just be available for her!
