All of your friends and family just found out that you just got engaged. You’re receiving a number of texts and calls from your best friend, old friends, sisters & cousins & they are asking to be in your wedding. This can be overwhelming and you might feel pressured to figure out how to make everyone feel special and that can put a lot of stress on you.
Sis, the truth is. This is your wedding, your vision & the only people that need to feel special on YOUR wedding day are you & your future husband, OKAY!
Just like being a Godparent, it’s more to this then just the honorable title. For example, becoming a Godparent is not something you just want to call yourself because you want to babysit here and there. You need to get a lawyer and legally be named the guardian if, God forbid, both parents pass away. You are financially responsible and need to raise that child as if they are your own. Still want to be a Godparent?
Being a MOH & Bridesmaids is the same thing, the title comes with responsibility! Everyone just wants the title and to post pictures on social media when they can’t actually handle the work that comes with it. What exactly are the responsibilities that come with being a MOH & Bridesmaids? I thought you'd never ask! I created a list below:
Lead the Bridal party
Host the Bridal party
Plan the Bach Party
Host the Bach party
Walk down the aisle
Give a speech at the wedding
Hold the brides bouquet
Keep the bride calm
Have all vendors contact info near by
Attend Pre-Wedding Events (engagement party, rehearsal dinner)
Financially help with the Bach Party
Be a point person for guests
Attend wedding dress shopping & fitting
Pay for your own bridesmaids dress
Help plan & pay for the bridal shower/Bachelorette Party
Attend Wedding rehearsal
Pay for your own makeup, hair & nails
Attend engagement party
Pay for your own transportation and accommodations
I’m sure there are some things I missed on the list but you get the point. So think about who will actually do this work. Ask yourself these questions: Will they go the extra mile to make my wedding process easier? Can they financially help out with the bachelorette party? Who is willing to hold my dress up if I need to use the restroom at the wedding? So you see, you need a maid of honor & bridesmaids that will take the position seriously. I hope this helped you to narrow your choices down on picking your MOH & Bridesmaid(s).
