Make sure your friend's wedding goes off without a hitch.
No matter what's going on, be sure to enter the wedding adventure with a positive, go-with-the-flow attitude. Be there to support the bride more than you ever have before.
Before the wedding adventure kicks off, be sure to print any itineraries or timelines that the bride or maid of honor may have sent over. That way, you'll know where to be and when to be there.
Keep this handy so you know important details like the time of the ceremony, cocktail hour, and the reception.
Keep the phone numbers of the maid of honor and the other bridesmaids handy in case you get lost or have a last-minute question on the day of.
You have a long day ahead of you so it's always helpful if your phone is fully juiced. Bring along a wall phone charger or even a portable one that can bring your phone back to life when you're on the go.
You'll be running around the morning and afternoon of the wedding, getting glammed up and posing for pictures. Don't forget to please your stomach by bringing along a bag of filling and easy-to-eat snacks.
It's important to stay hydrated on the day of the wedding, so keep a water bottle close.
You can never have too many with you on the day of the wedding, whether it's to dry tears or fix your makeup.
If you have a speaking part during the wedding weekend—whether at the rehearsal dinner, ceremony, or during reception—be sure to have a couple copies of your speech printed out.
