Married girls - did your BM's have to do anything above and beyond on your day??

OK, so we know we choose our bridesmaids because they are those that are closest to us and mean the most to us.  With that, we know we will count on them on the wedding day to be our "go to" girls when things go crazy.  Did any of your BM's have to do anything totally above and beyond the call of duty on your day?  I know mine did! :)  My "something blue" was a pair of blue boyshort undies with a good luck horse shoe on the bum.  So cute...I loved them!  I was all dressed and back in the bridal suite after taking pics with my girls...waiting for the cue to get in place for the ceremony.  I happened to look at my rear reflection in the full length mirror, only to realize you could see the lines of the undies through my fitted mermaid dress!!!!  Oh no!  Luckily I had packed a spare pale blue thong in case the original undies didn't work out.  Unfortunately, my dress was too tight for me to bend down and take off my undies and put the new ones on!  So, just minutes before I was to walk down the aisle, one of my BM's was on her hands and knees, taking one pair of undies from around my ankles and helping me stick my shoed feet through the legs of another pair, shimmying them up to my knees so that I could pull them up.  


Now THAT's the true definition of a bridesmaid! :)  What about you guys?

lol... That's too funny :)  Hopefully it won't come to that on my wedding day, but if it does, I have 3 of the most willing and dedicated girls I know at my side!

Hey...if anything, let it be a reminder to have a plan B for everything! :)  A second pair of undies never hurts! :)

Beatie - That's LOVE! 


My sole MOH in the bridal party lived out of town, so I gave her very little "tasks" before the wedding.  That being said, she was truly my rock on the date of the wedding... she kept me laughing without cryin while we nervously waited for our cue for the walk down the aisle. That 30 minutes was the loooooooooongest wait ever!!!

Believe it or not, I didn't use the bathroom the ENTIRE wedding!  I went right before I put my dress on and for some reason, I didn't have to go again until we got to our wedding night hotel!  So strange!  Eight and a half hours of not having to go!!

That's too funny!  I know mine would have done the same if needed.


We got to the venue and the tablecloths put out were a mess.  I know they don't usually iron out the folds, but they were wrinkled and awful.  I brought along an iron and extension cords just in case.  They were out there ironing in shifts all afternoon.  I love them!

Thats too funny Beatie!


My sisters(MOH's), thank god made me an amazing emergency bag!  Just moments before I walked down the aisle I felt like I had to pee- or something?  Well they hurried and helped me into the bathroom without messing up my dress- and I realized I just started my PERIOD!!!!  I was not expecting it either!?  So good thing they had the tampons ready in the bag and got me back and prepped to get going down the aisle...


My sister thought it was funny to take a bunch of pictures right then haha- here are some of my TMI pics ;)

HMM, you're BM's were super girls.  Good thing you went pee before you walked down the aisle.


Beatie, I had the same thing happen to me but, I had black panties on because my white ones that I had originally bought for my wedding were in my suit case which was already at the hotel.  So a couple of my  BM's had to drive to our hotel room and get my white wedding panties just in time for me to walk down the aisle. 


I also had some great friends who went to our hotel that morning to check us in, put our luggage in our room and to decorate our hotel room with candles and flowers which was done really nice.

HMM~ Love the pics.  It will make sure you always remember it. :)


Beatie~Those are some great friends... I know mine would have done it for me too if need be.


My BMs were fabulous!  They had all the nervousness for me.  I was so calm the morning of and leading up to the ceremony.  I started to have a breakdown right before we walked down the aisle.  They were getting me to breathe, relax, and laugh.  Then right after the first dance I had to pee and they were right there to help me, and boy did I need it. :)  Everytime I had a bathroom run of any sort at least 1 of them was right there to help me.  One of my BMs got stuck on the task of fixing my bustle.  People kept stepping on it and pulling it.  She did an amazing job of fixing it and getting my dress up high enough to not have the problem anymore.

I made one of those "emergency kits" for my best friend who got married in September. Good thing I put the needle and white thread in the bag! No one noticed that the little hook above the zipper had fallen off (must have happened after her last fitting), and the zipper started to slowly creep down as soon as you zipped it up! My Mom and MOB sewed her dress closed!
