Being a Maid of Honor is a great honor. It means the bride trusts and loves you to help them on their big day. Here are 7 duties of a maid of honor.
1. PLAN THE SHOWER.
And if the bride wants one, the bachelorette party.
2. SPREAD THE WORD.
Let people know (especially before the bridal shower) where the bride and groom are registered.
3. KEEP A RECORD OF GIFTS.
The MOH should jot down what presents the bride receives at her shower and who gave them to her.
4. DO SOME DRESS SHOPPING.
Go with the bride to look for her gown, if she asks, and help shop for bridesmaids' dresses.
5. COORDINATE BRIDESMAIDS' DUTIES.
As the "chief" bridesmaid, the MOH should schedule dress fittings and carry out any other tasks assigned by the bride.
6. BE THE BRIDE'S RIGHT-HAND WOMAN.
Give her help where needed: Address the invitations, write out the place cards, weigh in on the cake, assemble playlist...
7. SAY A FEW WORDS.
Prepare a toast to the bride and groom to be given at the rehearsal dinner.
