witness duties

In our time, the role of a wit­ness is a pure for­mal­i­ty. How­ev­er, the cho­sen per­son bears a great respon­si­bil­i­ty. She is the main assis­tant to the bride, who will share with her all the and­chores.

What should a witness at aknow?

  1. Out­fit. When choos­ing an out­fit, do not try to dress bet­ter than the bride. Do not choose a white dress or a flashy shade (for exam­ple, neon pink, light green). Opt for an ele­gant pas­tel-col­ored dress. Don’t wear high heels as you will have to walk a lot. It will not be super­flu­ous to wear a long dress and san­dals.
  2. Wed­ding sce­nario. Come up with enter­tain­ment for guests, con­tests, toasts, etc. This will help save theif the toast­mas­ter turns out to be not par­tic­u­lar­ly tal­ent­ed, as we would like. It is the wit­ness­es who should ignite the guests and make the hol­i­day unfor­get­table. Con­sid­er a buy­out sce­nario. Spend it in a sep­a­rate room. It should last 5–10 min­utes, no more.
  3. Wed­ding Dress. Anoth­er duty of the wit­ness at the­is to choose the right­dress, shoes and acces­sories for the bride. You will most like­ly have to vis­it many dif­fer­ent salons before you find some­thing suit­able.
  4. Pho­tog­ra­ph­er. As a rule, the new­ly­weds them­selves choose the pho­tog­ra­ph­er, but you should make sure that the pic­tures from theare pre­served. Take a cam­era with you or put it on the shoul­ders of the wit­ness. Ama­teur pic­tures should be manda­to­ry — they will remind you of a real hol­i­day.
  5. hen-par­ty. The bride her­self choos­es a place and invites her friends, and the role of a wit­ness at thein this case is to come up with enter­tain­ment and give tasks to oth­er brides­maids. You can take the ini­tia­tive and com­plete­ly orga­nize the bach­e­lorette par­ty, but don’t over­do it — the par­ty should be held in an easy and friend­ly atmos­phere.

What does a bridesmaid do at a wedding?

  1. Bride’s prepa­ra­tions. On your­day, vis­it the bride ear­ly in the morn­ing. Help her put on her­dress and make sure her look is as planned. Just in case, put valer­ian, a nee­dle and thread, hair­pins and hair­pins, a hand­ker­chief, an umbrel­la and oth­er acces­sories in your purse with you.
  2. MARRIAGE REGISTRY. Go to the reg­istry office in the same car with the bride. Dur­ing the cer­e­mo­ny, the wit­ness stands next to the groom and the wit­ness stands next to the bride. But more and more often, wit­ness­es are left with the guests. What does a brides­maid need for a wed­ding? Pre­pare grain, coins, con­fet­ti and rose petals. After reg­is­tra­tion, show­er them on the young.
  3. Present. When the cer­e­mo­ny is over, the par­ents will con­grat­u­late the new­ly­weds. Then you must come. Stand next to the bride and, togeth­er with the wit­ness, help her accept con­grat­u­la­to­ry bou­quets. Take the flow­ers to the car. Do not for­get to pick up the mar­riage reg­is­tra­tion doc­u­ments from the reg­istry office.
  4. Restau­rant. Sit next to the bride. Don’t let guests play a cru­el joke and steal it. If you are par­tic­i­pat­ing in a con­test and you have to be part of the kid­nap­ping of a young wife, do it in such a way that every­one feels as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble in the con­test. Don’t delay your enter­tain­ment.
  5. feast. What else is required from a wit­nessthe role of a witness at a wedding at the wed­ding? Par­tic­i­pate in all games and com­pe­ti­tions. Try to make the hol­i­day as joy­ful as pos­si­ble. In your pres­ence, guests should not be bored, and the bride should not be left alone. If some­thing goes wrong, offer an alter­na­tive. The main thing is not to let the bride pan­ic and always be able to cor­rect the sit­u­a­tion.
