Help and Advice for your Chief Bridesmaid(s)

 

Bridesmaids Roles and Help


The chief bridesmaid is usually a sister or close friend of the bride. 


She will liaise closely with the bride during all the wedding preparations and help look after the other bridesmaids, flower girl and page boys.

 

Although being asked to become a bridesmaid is an honor in itself. If the chosen bridesmaid is already married or is remarrying then her title becomes the Matron of honor. The chief bridesmaid is chosen as the bride's main moral support during a very emotional point in her life
