1. They Want You to Tell Them Your Expectations

What do you expect from your bridesmaids? Do you want them to just show up to support you on your wedding day, or do you want them to be there with you throughout all the decision making and to-dos, like addressing wedding invitations and filling up welcome bags for out-of-town guests? Either way, let your bridesmaids know what you expect of them, so you don't end up frustrated with a friend who doesn't understand (or didn't know) what you wanted them to do in the first place.
