Bridal shower and bachelorette party
Before tying the knot, it's customary for the bride and her friends to celebrate the end of one chapter of her life. This is usually done through bridal showers and bachelorette parties. One non-negotiable duty of the maid of honor and bridesmaids is planning for this event.

At its core, bachelorette parties are any celebration where the bride gets to enjoy herself with loved ones while also getting away from the wedding planning. For some brides, getting the chance to spend time with their friends and loved ones even in a relaxed setting is more than enough of a celebration.

Taking charge of this allows the bride and the groom to focus on getting ready themselves. This is their special day where they get to celebrate their union. It's only fair that they're given the time to look their best.
As you can see with all these duties, a bridesmaid doesn't need to be wealthy to be of help to their beloved friend. Sometimes your presence, time, and effort are more than enough contributions to make the wedding a success.
