She Asked you to be Maid of Honor.. Now What?

When my sister asked me to be her Maid of Honor (MOH) I was so excited, but I really had no idea what that entailed.  I had never even been a bridesmaid before so I had to turn to friends for help and advice.  That is one of the reasons I started this blog, I want it to be a reference where girls can go if they are confused or stressed about a wedding ahead.

I was so nervous I wasn't doing everything right or I was missing something.  What I had to realize is my sister asked me to be her MOH because we are not only sisters, we are also best friends.  What the bride needs during the entire wedding process is her best friend.  Rather than wondering what she expects of you all you need to do is ask her.  If you ask the bride you may find she has expectations you would never of thought of.  For example, my sister asked me to take care of making a video montage for her and Jeff which we played at the rehearsal dinner.

In my opinion the most important task the MOH has is to take care of the bachelorette party.  I think she needs to get the ball rolling with selecting dates and locations and then have others help fill in the details.  In the next few weeks I will write more about planning the perfect bachelorette party.

At the Bachelorette party in Vegas!!

On the actual wedding day/night I would say be the best best friend you have ever been.  Run the small errands she may need, make sure she eats, and most of all get her excited for her big day.

Most likely she will want you to give a toast, whether at the rehearsal dinner or at the reception.  I will touch on speeches a different day though.

If you feel lost just remember to support and love the bride and be her best friend on the most important day of her life.

Are you currently a MOH or recently been one and have any advice to share?
