The chief bridesmaid is usually the bride’s closest friend or member of the family member. Her role is to help the bride organise a calm, stress-free wedding and assist her throughout the wedding day itself. The best chief bridesmaid provides the bride with valued physical and emotional support and often works tirelessly with the best interests of the bride at heart. It can be a tough, stressful and demanding role to fulfil and the list of duties is extensive.
Before the Wedding
There are a wide range of jobs for the CBM to do during the months of the bride’s engagement, for instance:
Assist in the planning and organisation of pre-wedding parties.
Help plan and organise the Hen party activities.
Help the bride choose and shop for her wedding dress and accessories, as well as any change of clothes on the wedding day.
Help select the dresses and accessories for the bridesmaids.
Manage and oversee the bridesmaids, making sure they coordinate and are kept updated on all appointments, trials, fittings, decisions and schedules.
Act as the bride’s problem solver should any bridesmaids have any issues relating to their own roles and responsibilities.
