I always thought that a personal attendant was the same as the bridesmaids. But I think that SCTK519 is right, you just have to tend to the brides needs without having the expenses of the Bridesmaids and Maid of honor.
Or if you talk to your friend, and find out exactly what she is wanting you to do, she might want you in the wedding party. You never know, she may just be so overwhelmed with everything that she needs someone to help her out a bit.
I've never actually been a personal attendant myself, but from what I understand they help the bride with whatever she needs the day of the wedding. Look at it this way: the bride clearly wants you to be part of her special day, but you don't have to spend hundreds of dollars on buying a dress you won't wear again, getting hair & nails done, and planning a bridal shower and bachelorette party.
What does a personal attendant do? One of my friends just asked me to be her personal attendant and I have no idea what it is (she apparently doesn't either). I'm just a little confused. I'm a bit hurt that I'm not a bridesmaid but am trying to just get over it (at least she thought of me I guess). I know that it is HER wedding and she is probably overwhelmed with trying to figure everything out. I just want to do a good job to make her day great. Thanks.
