Not sure what your bridesmaid’s duties should be? Here are seven things you can definitely ask your chief bridesmaid or maid of honour to do for you (and not feel too bad about it).
1. Wear what you choose for them
It’s your wedding day so ultimately it’s up to you what your bridesmaids wear and what styles you like (however, it doesn’t hurt to check that all your maids are comfortable – you do love them after all!)

2. Pull up your Spanx (yes, really)
It’s a well known fact that going to the loo in your big white dress can be a bit of a nightmare (for a start you won’t be able to see a thing over all those tulle layers). So it’s definitely reasonable to ask you maid of honour or chief bridesmaid to accompany you to the ladies and give you a little help.
Now let’s never speak of it again.
3. Plan your entire hen do
It may seem like a big ask, but trust us, your bridesmaids will be happy to start planning. Searching through the Butler in the Buff website for the perfect half-naked man is a struggle, but someone’s got to do it.
4. Traipse around 25 bridal boutiques with you
She knows that you want to look amazing and she’ll be happy to come and offer up honest opinions on hundreds of white dresses (especially if these boutiques offer up free champagne – hic!)

5. Be on smudged lipstick watch all day long
Especially if you’re just about to go off for those dreamy couples shots. We don’t want to ruin those pics now do we?
6. Stand and smile for one million photos until you get THE perfect one
Your little nephew has gone from running out of shot to kicking the photographer, but don’t worry – your bridesmaid will keep on smiling next to you.
7. Keep your fave Bobbi Brown powder safe in her clutch bag
She also has some mints, safety pins, tissues, your phone and a mini umbrella – don’t worry – she’s totally got this.
