The role of the Maid of Honor: Plan some parties!

A few of us here at the Shoppe have been a MOH before and each experience has been different. Two things are absolutely the same though. One of the most important Maid of Honor responsibilities is planning a bridal shower. Yes, other women or family members might plan a shower for the bride but it is also one of your Maid of Honor duties to plan one or ask the bride if she would like you to plan one. The other, often overlooked MOH responsibility is to plan the bachelorette party. How fun is it that one of your Maid of Honor responsibilities is to plan an exciting night out with the girls?! Keep in mind, you should ask the bride who she wants invited. You don’t want to skip over friends who may not be part of the wedding party or your friend group.

The duties of the Maid of Honor: Be her right hand (wo)man.

From the day your friend gets engaged until the decorations are taken down, you are a sounding board for all the decisions the bride will make. Its super fun to go dress shopping, scope out venues, attend some tastings, and even register for gifts. The duties of the Maid of Honor are varying depending on the needs of the bride. Your biggest responsibility is to just be there, be supportive, and be fun.

The most important of your Maid of Honor responsibilities is to be there for the bride on the wedding day. Be ready to bring her coffee in the morning, hold her lipstick during photos, fix her hair in the wind, tie her into her dress and just be ready to help, help, help. Yes, the other bridesmaids and personal attendants will be on hand to help the bride throughout the day, but you’ll be her go-to gal. You’ll hold her bouquet while they exchange rings, fix her veil and train when she moves around, hold the groom’s ring, and adjust anything else. If you get to be someone’s Maid of Honor, relish in the moment. Know that it will be a lot of work, but it will be a lot of fun too!
