Lean on me

I just returned from a fun beach weekend with some of my college girlfriends and it just reminds me how thankful I am to have them in my life. Plus, they've each been a bridesmaid countless times so they have loads of great advice to offer.

As a bridesmaid, you'll help host a bridal shower and a bachelorette outing, both of which are fantastic opportunities to stretch those party planning muscles. But if the thought of organizing even the smallest dinner party makes you nauseous, now's the time to pump your friends for ideas.

It's so easy to start an e-mail volley with your gal pals to ask for cooking and decorating tips. They can also share stories of successful showers and warn you of pitfalls for the bachelorette party (HINT: when a bride says "no" to a stripper, it can be disastrous if you don't listen to her.)

Tap your friends' font of knowledge, especially if they've been a bridesmaid before you. They'll enjoy the chance to help make your tasks easier and you'll have great new suggestions to share with the rest of us here at!
