1) Buy their dresses and shoes

2) Show up on time for rehearsal dinner and wedding.

3) Throw a shower and bachelorette party.

Ok though I’m totally down for organizing my own bachelorette party. Also I don’t even really want there help with DIY. I’m kind of an “omg these crafts will go so much better if I just do them myself” type person.

1. Purchase their dress…found ones that they can rent for $100 and free alterations (I bought their shoes & accessories)

2. It would be helpful if they could pay for their hair & make-up IF they want it done

3. Let me vent to them about mindless complaints lol

4. Show up to the rehearsal dinner

5. DANCE at the reception to keep the party going

6. No complaining about the dress HAHA

– go shopping with me one time to look at Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses 

– buy their Bridesmaid or Best Man dress, which I let them choose

– show up to all the  wedding related events (like 4 events total over the course of a year, including the rehearsal and wedding). 

Apparently that’s too much to ask, though!!!

I was pretty laid back too. My requirements were:

1) Show up on the day of, get hair and makeup done (they did pay for that).

2) Get a dress and some shoes. (We made the dresses, they paid for materials. They had the option of wearing shoes they already owned. Their jewelry was part of their Bridesmaid or Best Man gift.)

3) Show up at necessary functions like rehearsal and bridal shower

That was pretty much it. Didn’t ask for DIY help. They didn’t have to help set anything up. I kept their costs very minimal because we all had shitty jobs and I didn’t want them to go broke. Basically, just hang out with me and look hot. lol
