Being chosen as the Maid of Honor (MOH), is well, quite the honor. The MOH is the ‘wing-woman’ to the bride, she must be able to tackle any tasks that come her way. A MOH should be organized, be supportive of the couple, be ready to take on anything that comes their way, and always be there for the bride.
Wing-Woman Duties Before the Wedding:
-Be in charge of the bridesmaids and help shop for the bridesmaid dresses and accessories.
-Assist the bride in choosing a dress, picking a color scheme, deciding on decorations, and attending to those many last-minute emergencies. She will be counting on your help and your honest opinion.
-Host or co-host the bridal shower and plan the bachelorette party.
Wing-Woman Duties at the Wedding and Reception:
-Keep things light; smile and keep others smiling.
-Make sure all the bridesmaids have their hair and make-up done and are dressed on time.
-Hold the bride’s bouquet and the groom’s ring during the ceremony.
-Give a toast to the newlyweds.
-Make sure the bride is calm, happy, refreshed, and fed.
The Maid of Honor isn’t someone who is there just during the ceremony; she will be there for the bride before and after the wedding. She is there to support, cheerlead, assist, advise, and problem-solve and to make sure the wedding day is that day that the bride has dreamed of for a long time!
