The Role and Duties of the Bride

A woman's wedding day is possibly the biggest day of her life. It's the day where she is the centre of attention from start to finish, it's a day organised by her, as she wants it to be.

Such power does not come cheaply.

The bride's work begins months in advance and doesn't stop until the day before the wedding - if then.

The exact organisational, plannng and social tasks which the bride has to do are covered elsewhere in net-weddings but, quite simply, the bride has overall responsibility for choosing and co-ordinating just about every aspect of the wedding day.

Oh, except choosing small gifts for the attendants; that weighty task is given over to the groom. However, since this is just about as much as most of them can handle it's enough to keep them busy and out of your hair for months. Expect, however, to be given the impression - ad nauseam- that the entire success of the day was down to his choice of just the right cufflinks for the best man and usher.

It is no exaggeration to say that the bride decides every aspect of the wedding from the Groom down to the piece of music to which the first dance takes place.

However, for the sake of harmony, it should be remembered that although the wedding day belongs to the couple it is also a very big day for both sets of parents too and they should be consulted on at least some of the issues.

The duties, therefor, are to organise everything perfectly in just the way you want but without stepping on any toes. Easy, isn't it?

The role of the bride? To star.
