My college aged daughter is a bridesmaid in an upcoming wedding. This is her 1st time doing this and they have already thrown the wedding shower several weeks ago but as the wedding is fast approching she has also just started her last year of college and is taking a VERY full load and starting to feel overwhelmed by school this semester. Even though she's only been back to school a short 2 weeks she just has a lot on her plate this semester plus she's working part time and the wedding is coming up at the end of Sept. Basically I think she feels like she's not being a very good friend to the bride because she's so busy and doesn't see that letting up any time soon and she's also a little worried that the bride is feeling that she's not being helpful with the wedding stuff. But what exactly is the job of the bridesmaid? She asked me what was expected of her and I really didn't have a good answer for her.
