Make your best friend’s wedding unforgettable – Tips for the maid of honor
You are the lucky chosen one! Your best friend is getting married, and she chose you to be her maid of honor! This doesn’t only mean that the bride considers you her closest person, it means she trusts you and believes that you’re the one that’s going to make her dreams possible.Because sure, she got the wedding planner, the photographer, the musicians and the venue, but you are her maid of honor, and none of this is as important as your role.
You’re probably starting to feel the stress grow in your chest… maybe you should, and shouldn’t. See, being the maid of honor is an honor, but it’s also a responsibility. However, it’s one of the most beautiful responsibilities. You get to be your best friend’s support and help her through the most beautiful moments in her life, taking a little bit of her stress out of her shoulders.
You’re going to enjoy this to the very last bit, because your role is to make her happy by being happy. You’re her shoulder to cry on, her go to whenever she’s stressed, pissed or happy, and, most importantly, you’re her party person.
A maid of honor’s role:
Technically, you have to attend the wedding ceremony and assist the bride on her special day. But, of course, you’re gonna be doing way more than that!
Your work will start the moment she shows you that beautiful shinny rock on her finger. After the jumping and screaming, it’s time to get to it. You will be there every step of the way, sometimes even more than the groom himself.
First things first, you will probably be there for the big decisions, like the perfect wedding destination. You two know each-other so well, you probably already know where her dream wedding takes place, and you also know if that’s going to be possible considering reality. So you will help her choose the destination, between dream and reality, where the wedding will take place. A church in Paris? A beach in Portugal? A castle in France? Brainstorm with her before she goes to her fiancée
Once the wedding destination is set, the rest of the wedding planning can take place. As her maid of honor, accompanied by the bridesmaids, you will help with the dress. Oh yeah, especially knowing that the groom is not supposed to see the dress before the big day. It’s going to be long and time-consuming, and of course, stressful for the bride. She wants THE dress, not any dress, and that’s not easy to find… so your work is not only to help her look, it’s to make these few days of looking and trying on hundreds of dresses as fun and relaxing as it can get. Champagne, wine, chocolates, little snacks, dance breaks, anything you think she’ll like and will take her head off of the dress for a few minutes.
