This is when your bridesmaid goes, "No, you cannot put on self-tanner 10 minutes before putting on your dress."

3. When you wanted your bachelorette party to be off the chain.

Ordering strippers is what bridesmaids do best.

Whether it's asking you to go hiking, out for a coffee, or even a good ol' fashioned happy hour, they were there to take your mind off of things.

7. When everyone else was sick of you talking about your wedding and they listened to you as if it was the first time they've heard about your table arrangements.

Plus, they "liked" all of your social media ~updates~ because THAT'S WHAT FRIENDS DO.

8. When they didn't complain at all about their bridesmaid dress.

You know what they did instead? FREAKIN' ROCKED IT LIKE IT WAS THE CATWALK.

Your aunt always thinks she should sing at functions. ALWAYS.

12. When you needed an impromptu dance party right before the ceremony started.


It's like they're a bridesmaid and an Olympics coach. "NOW, LET'S GO GET MARRIED!!!"

13. When they made sure you looked absolutely ~perfect~ at all times.
