 YOU said YES!
 What to do after accepting a BRIDESMAID proposal
   Being asked to be a bridesmaid is a huge honor but it also comes with a fairly long list of responsibilities.
Every bride is a little different and might have different expectations (that you’ll need to communicate clearly!), but here are some of the most common bridesmaid duties that can be reasonably anticipated.
• Be a sounding board for ideas
• Make yourself available for wedding dress shopping and fittings where possible
• Help plan and organize the bridal shower and bachelorette party
• Buy your own bridesmaid dress, shoes and accessories
• Book travel and hotel reservations
• Help with wedding planning tasks (DIY projects, errands, etc.)
• Help support the bride emotionally
• Attend the wedding rehearsal and dinner
• Get along with the bridal party and families
• Buy a wedding present
• Help the bride get dressed
• Provide getting-ready snacks
• Help keep the bride calm and happy
• Assist the maid of honor with any last-minute tasks
• Participate in the ceremony
• Be there for emotional support
• Help bride throughout the day with whatever she needs
• Be on the dance floor
• Mingle with guests (and be the life of the party)
• Give a speech, if asked
• Help send off newlyweds
