Research reveals that being a bridesmaid is a full time job

A survey from fashion retailer, Simply Be, has revealed the amount of time bridesmaids spend preparing for a wedding is equivalent to a full time job.

Brand new research has shown that on average, dutiful bridesmaids are spending the same time preparing for the bride’s wedding as they would be working a full time job.

In an insightful investigation by fashion retailer, Simply Be, it was revealed that the average bridesmaid spends 43 hours preparing for the bride’s all-important big day.

The survey takes into account tasks such as dress shopping, planning the hen party, and dress fittings, with the amount of time spent attending wedding fairs coming out on top, reaching an average of 13 hours.

What’s more, the duties continue throughout the wedding day itself, with an attentive bridesmaid fulfilling a number of tasks, for example dressing the venue, organising photographs, and preparing the honeymoon suite.

Honoured to be a part of the bride’s big day, many bridesmaids will take to the wedding planning with ease, with 74 per cent saying they enjoyed the process.

Compiling the study together, e-commerce manager at Simply Be, Joey Hughes said: ‘Evidently, being a bridesmaid is a big responsibility and requires a lot more time and effort than many probably anticipate. However, these duties are all part of the honour and fun of being a bridesmaid and most revel in the responsibility.’
