Last night a great friend asked me to be a personal attendant at her wedding and omigosh I’m super excited! She is gifted at her career, which happens to be in the wedding industry, so you just know the reception is going to be ah-ma-zing. Also, the most important thing – the couple is one of those loving partnerships us single girls aspire to be a part of one day.
But here’s the thing: What exactly does one do as a personal attendant? Having never been one before, I took to the powers and wonder of the internet to find out. There were many duties, but five main ones that stood out.
5. Organize. Everything.
When I hear the word “Organize” I get excited. If I could list one super human talent I possess, this would be it. So far, so good.
4. Help the bride get dressed.
I know how to get dressed in the morning, so I feel pretty qualified to handle this one. Easy peasy.
3. Various “go-fer” duties.
Which gives me total access to walk around with a purpose, checking out all the single dudes. This is the best job ever!
2. Hold a touch-up / emergency bag.
I’ve actually brought these to most weddings, just because. Traditionally I include band aids, hairspray, clear nail polish, nail clippers, nail files, deodorant, and breath mints. Done!
1. Make sure the bride is not stressed.
Challenge: Accepted. Current adding liquor to my touch-up/emergency bag.
I guess it actually doesn’t really matter. The bride essentially told me I just have to show up, keep her sane, and have fun.
Done and done!
