About SuperBridesmaid

Hi! I'm Michelle, and I am a 28 year-old female living in New York City. I have a ton of fabulous friends and like most girls my age, am in what we like to call "the wedding circuit". Over the past few years, I have gone to at least four weddings a year and have a been a bridesmaid five times (plus, will be in two more weddings next summer). When I was in my first wedding only 2 1/2 years ago, we did not have a MOH (Maid of Honor) to take charge. There was no one to organize the bachelorette party, the group gift for the shower, etc...so I stepped up to the plate and the other bridesmaids (all my friends) lovingly nicknamed me "Super Bridesmaid." After that, my reputation proceeded me for the rest of the weddings I was in. I've been the one who has come up with the creative, different and meaningful gift ideas and the clever games to play. I spent so much time preparing for all of the festivities that I have turned "bridesmaiding" into a verb, and have joked around that I have become a professional bridesmaid. At my most recent bachelorette party (for Bride #5), we were playing a game I made up and the MOB (Mother of the Bride) turned to me and said "I mean, Michelle- you are in the wrong business. You are too creative. You should do something with this." Well, I wasn't about to abandon my steady paycheck in the world of corporate marketing, as I don't think the business of being a bridesmaid consultant would be able to pay the bills. Let's be honest ladies, we all know that having the honor of standing up next to your girlfriend on her big day is absolutely wonderful, but it does have its costs, and who wants to add another expense to the list? So, I decided to start this blog to help the young bridesmaids out there who are not sure what to do come up with cute, clever, and creative ideas to make the bride's big day (and let's face it- entire year) extra special. However- there may be some young BMs out there who are totally clueless- for those of you who need extra special help, SUPERBRIDESMAID does offer specific consulting services. Email me directly at superbridesmaid@gmail.com for costs. When you are stuck without a clue- it's SUPERBRIDESMAID to the rescue!
Happy Bridesmaiding!
xoxo
Michelle
