If you’ve been asked to be someone’s bridesmaid, buckle up because these are the stages
you’ll most definitely go through.
1. Getting Asked
Your bestie got engaged and you’ve been on countdown since to see if you’d been picked
for bridesmaid duty. Today’s the day, you’re officially in.
2. Meeting The Other Bridesmaids
OFC you’re excited but you’re also kinda nervous too. The doubts of spending a lot of
your life with these gals begins…What if they all look like models? What if they think I
3. Finding The Dress
Being a bridesmaid is essentially a part-time job. You’ll sacrifice your weekends
trawling round the shops trying on <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress

dress. The struggle to find one that suits a group of people all with different body
shapes and heights is real. When you think it’s finally all over you’ll have to start
shopping for shoes, lord have mercy.
4. Realising You’ve Become The Bride’s Personal Helpline
You’re her go-to-gal and whenever she has a wobble or something doesn’t go to plan she’
ll come to you for advice, the catch, she expects you to be on call 24/7. It’s pretty
demanding especially when she calls you up at 3am blubbering because she’s suddenly
decided she doesn’t like the colour scheme any more.
5. The Group Chat Drama
The group chat will probably be called something like #bridesquad and while it will start
out full of excitement and chatter, it will soon descend into a shambolic mess of passive
aggressive GIFs. You’ll debate leaving the group or gasp, the app itself and dream of
riding off into the sunset. Instead you’ll just put the chat on mute and blame any sweary
outbursts on having had too much tequila.
6. The Hen Party
There’ll be novelty objects everywhere, sashes will be styled and whistles will be blown.
Welcome to the hen party. Which you’ll need a week to recover from after.
7. The Money Realisation

8. The Big Day Pampering
Your eyebrows have never been more on fleek, the make-up artist has contoured your
cheekbones to perfection, and to top it all off, your hair looks dreamy and you feel
9. Being Wary Of Food
Unlike the other guests you can’t tuck into the canapes as the bride wants the <span

up. Your face will literally ache from all of the smiling, the photographer will make you
do a gazillion different poses and you won’t even be allowed a snack break, the sheer
10. Being On Dress Duty
She might be an adult woman but her dress weighs a ton and it consists of never ending
layers, making the simple act of the bride peeing a complete mission.
11. TFW It’s All Over
Your best friend’s married her soulmate and you’ve witnessed how truly happy she is.
All of the stress and drama leading up to this has paid off and being a part of her
special day is an honour you will treasure forever.
