Prepare the bride and wedding party before going down the aisle by making sure that all sashes, ties and pocket squares are straight; that all suits are lint-free, and hold the veil and train until she is at the aisle ready to go. Troubleshoot any fashion emergencies that come up including ripped hems, broken buttons, torn straps, and stains, etc.
