You help the bride out with what ever she may need.
To get you started, some typical "duties" you might ask her to be responsible for:
~helping you transport your gown and attire
~helping you dress
~holding a touch-up/emergency bag for you (lipstick, breath mints, aspirin, safety pins, deodorant/perfume, etc.)
~fielding messages for you at home/ceremony site so your aren't interrupted for every little thing ~protecting your privacy/quiet time pre-ceremony, if you values it ~taking messages/gifts to the groom, if you will not see one another ~various "go-fer" duties-- keep her eyes open on wedding day to see what
needs to be done, checked, handled, smoothed over. If she (and the bridesmaids as a group) can do a good job of this, being
Johnny-on-the-spot so you doesn't even hear about some of the little glitches, they can make your day *much* more relaxed.
