    Hi Guys!

    I have 4 bridesmaids. One is my sister and she is chief bridesmaid. I have asked my other friend to be my maid of honour (she's the only one that's married) and I will ask another one to be my witness. That still leaves one bridesmaid without a role and I would really like her to have one. The chief and maid of honour are planning my hen do and I already have my dress. My bridesmaid have all been life long friends so I want to make them all feel important. Can anyone think of a task for my bridesmaid?

    Thanks in advance.

    Why don't you ask her to do a reading?

    I had thought about that but I have my cousin in mind for doing that. There's no way she would stand up in front of people and read anything out.

    I'm interested to see how important everyone else feels it is to give all the bridesmaids a task to fulfill. My SIL is my MOH and she has been dress shopping with me and will also be organising my hen do. My other 2 BMs will be turning up, wearing a pretty dress and then getting drunk lol They don't live nearby so can't help with any preparation. I considered a reading but I don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable as I don't think they'd be keen. Am asking my Brother to be a witness. Don't feel they need to justify their role but equally I hope they won't feel redundant by not having a specific task.

    I haven't given any of mine a role. I probably should have in hindsight, but I wanted to do certain things at my hen do and I'm a *bit* of a control freak and I love planning so I didn't want to give any of that over to anyone else. Lol.

    Are you doing DIY invitations or anything? Could your remaining bridesmaid help with that sort of thing? xx

    Being bridesmaid is important enough. My best mate who was my bridesmaid was basically just that, my bridesmaid, she helped with planning and organising before the big day, was there for me all day long on the big day etc etc, she didn't need any other special task.

    none of my bridesmaids have a role as such, one of them has offered to make my bouquet but that was an offer and I didn't ask. one of them is my younger sister (will have just turned 18 before the wedding) so there isn't too much she can do even though she is my maid of honour, another has not long had a baby so she is up to her neck with things already, another lives in Wales so she can't very much do anything, and my last one doesn't have a role as none of the others do :)

    If you are able to decorate the venue the day before maybe you could ask her to do that with you? I'm sure she would be happy to, is she artsy in anyway or have a skill you could incorporate into the day? x
