Sometimes, the bride's support system needs a little support of her own. This indispensable guide will help any bridesmaid fulfil her duties with elegance and grace. It explains, in a clear and practical way what her position entails, the proper etiquette for carrying out her tasks and even crisis management. "The Bridesmaid's Companion" covers contemporary concerns, such as the bachelorette and shower ideas and financial tips for getting through a sometimes-costly process. And, because the book is organised chronologically, with time lines, checklists and strategies, nothing will get lost or forgotten in the excitement. Highlighting the practical and informative text are anecdotes from former bridesmaids about their most memorable attendant moments...and reflections from real brides on how their bridesmaids helped make the big day so special.
