After receiving the honor from
your friend to be a Bridesmaid or Maid of Honor in her wedding, planning will become one
of both excitement and time management. You will become more and more busy as the wedding
approaches. A bridesmaid that plans ahead will enjoy the experience much more than one who
will stress at the last minute preparations including getting things ordered, picked up,
sent out, brought in and just right!
During the planning
of the wedding, it can be very helpful for both your budget and the
bridesmaids to think about different things you can do to save money and
the earth while still having an amazing wedding. Click

Bridesmaid 101 will aid in this planning process
through helping you manage your time including listing the order of events and actions of
what "is" and "may be" expected of you. Much of your timing depends on
the span of time between the engagement and wedding. A great idea is to purchase a
calendar (if not already using one) that gives you space to write down the important
events and tasks.
