5 Things Your Bridal Party Expects From You...But Will Never Ask For

Welcome to the Step-by-Step Wedding Prep Podcast - The weekly show where we teach you everything you need to know to plan your wedding like a pro! 

On today's episode, we're talking about what your bridal party expects from YOU! Now, I know that sounds weird because you probably have a lot of questions about what you can expect from them, but these are things that will help both you and them.

These are what they expect...but will never ask for. We tackle everything from:

  • How to manage drama
  • How to make them feel important and heard
  • How handle who pays for what
  • How to handle responsibilities

And so much more. We'll also dive into a little of the history of bridal parties and why we have them today.

We want to hear from you! Were you in a wedding that was just a real pleasure to be part of? Why was it so? Were you in a wedding that was chaotic or disorganized? What happened?
