We’re here to help you answer that! The Omaha bridesmaid duties are to make the bride’s life easier, so she can enjoy her own wedding.  The first things first are to buy your dress!

An Omaha bridesmaid’s job is also to help the bride pick the certain styles of a bridesmaid’s dress she would want to stand at the altar with her. The majority of the time, a bridesmaid is expected to cover her dress cost. Next, the pre-wedding events- traditionally, the maid of honor is expected to plan the bachelorette party and bridal shower. The bridesmaid’s expenses also include pitching in for the bridal shower, and bachelorette party, as well as helping plan. However, every wedding party is different. The bridesmaid is at least expected to show up to both events, and of course- the wedding!

The actual wedding 

Now, coming down to the main event, the bridesmaid is expected to accommodate all of her own extra needs for the wedding. For example, the bridesmaid should cover her own transportation to the wedding, hair/make-up requested by the bride (a certain hairstyle or nail color), and her lodging for the night of the wedding. Like any other wedding guest, yes, bridesmaids are expected to get the couple a wedding gift. 


Supporting the bride

One major duty of the bridesmaid is to help relieve stress and emotionally support a bride. You were chosen for this role for a reason- the bride trusts you to stand next to her as she makes her biggest life decision. Second of all, planning a wedding is hard work! Be there for the bride, ask if she needs help with any small tasks like addressing invitations, help with centerpieces, or any other DIY wedding tasks. Being a bridesmaid is an honor and a duty! Most importantly of all, make it FUN. Weddings are meant to be a huge celebration after all!
