Congratulations, you’ve been crowned MAID OF HONOUR (MOH)! The duties and responsibilities of a Main of Honour are extensive. Some brides will ask a lot of their maids of honour during the wedding planning process, from assisting them with the invitations to choosing favours. Whatever the case may be, the main maid of honour’s responsibility is to be there to assist the bride with any tasks she needs help with and be there to listen to ideas and provide suggestions and advice.
It’s important to be the person that she can trust and thus come to for advice. However, it’s equally important to help the bride keep calm and not get completely swept away by the planning process
The bride may or may not ask the maid of honour to accompany her wedding dress shopping and to her dress fittings, but many brides do like to have the maid of honour present for this outing.
When planning wedding events like the bachelorette party, give the bridal party options of different activities. This is a great way to get them involved and excited about attending. Therefore my advice is to organize a get-together so that everyone can get acquainted before the pre-wedding events.
Take responsibility for this event as soon as possible. The maid of honor should work with the rest of the bridesmaids to put together a bachelorette party that the bride will never forget. Always keep the bride’s personality in mind to create a memorable event. Remember that this is about planning something that reflects what the bride wants.
The maid of honor usually gives a speech after the best man. The maid of honor speech is usually relatively short, relaying about the bride, and her love and respect for the couple. As long as the speech comes from the heart, it’s sure to be a hit. Try to write it well in advance and rehearse it in front of someone who will tell you the truth. Make it warm, funny, and brief. Avoid any stories that aren’t really wedding appropriate; no matter how funny you think it is.
