Maid of Honor Responsibilities
Your Maid of Honor should be your closest friend - many times,
a bride will choose her sister. Some brides will choose to
have both a Matron of Honor (a married woman) as well as a
Maid of Honor (an unmarried woman). And some choose to have
more than one Maid of Honor.
The main role of the Maid of Honor is to help the
bride with the wedding planning... this can include
shopping for dresses, addressing invitations, putting together
favors and just being there when the bride needs some extra
help, support or someone to talk to.
Traditionally, there are some specific duties that the maid
of honor is to perform:
Host the bridal shower. Today, this is
usually done with the help of the other bridesmaids.
Helps the bride get dressed on her wedding
Adjusts the bride's veil and train before
she walks down the aisle and during the ceremony as needed.
Holds the bride's bouquet during the
Holds the groom's ring wedding ring until
the exchange of the rings, if there is no ring bearer.
Witnesses the signing of the marriage
Helps the bride bustle her gown prior
to the beginning of the reception.
If you are a Maid of Honor, the most important
thing is to continually offer your assistance and support
to the bride throughout the entire wedding planning process.
We all need our friends - but during those stressful times
of wedding planning - you need your best friend even more!
