    Depends a lot on the bride and they style of wedding they are having. Things you may have to do are: -

    • Go shopping with the bride for bridesmaid dresses, shoes, jewellery etc
    • Go wedding dress shopping with the bride
    • Help the bride out with other aspects of wedding planning e.g. making invitations/craft items
    • Help the bride prepare the wedding venue the day before/morning of the wedding
    • Plan the hen party
    • Help the bride get ready
    • Wear a nice dress, have make-up etc done and walk down the aisle with the bride
    • Have lots of nice photos taken with the wedding party
    • Generally assist the bride throughout the day, make sure she has everything she needs, take her to the toilet if needed (it's bloody hard to go for a wee in a wedding dress!)
    • Possibly make a speech (usually only the chief bridesmaid and even then it's not always done)

    I'm sure there are other things, but I can't think of them right now. Not all bridesmaids will have to do all those things - mine didn't.

    As for how to get picked - have some good female friends/relatives who decide to get married and cross your fingers!

    Yeah, that may be problematic. More likely to be an usher for your male friends/relatives. I have seen one or two "bridesmen" but it's pretty rare. Why are you so keen?
