Maid of Honor Responsibilities


Maid of Honor Responsibilities
By C. Pulsifer, 2007

You are thrilled and honored to have been asked to be the Maid of Honor. We all know the Maid of Honor helps the bride, but what are the responsibilities of the Maid of Honor?

Well, by no means is this list carved in stone, but it will give you an idea of traditional things a Maid of Honor performs.

You can discuss the list with your bride to see if she wants you to do more or less then the responsibilities we have shown.

  • Organizes a bridal shower (don't forget to ask the brides mother for help here)
  • Makes sure the brides' wedding dress and veil are flowing properly during the ceremony
  • Helps the bride get dressed and ready on the wedding day
  • Poses for pictures before and after the wedding
  • Brings the grooms wedding band to the ceremony
  • Holds the brides' bouquet when she exchanges rings with the groom
  • Signs the wedding certificate as a witness
  • Gives a toast to the bride at the reception
  • Helps the bride when posing for pictures

If needed, looks after the wedding gown when the bride changes into her going away clothes

The most important thing for the Maid of Honor is to offer assistance and support in doing what needs to be done to ensure that special day is special. It may be moral support, or laughter needed for those wedding jitters.

The most important thing is just being a friend, someone to talk to, to laugh with, to help out.
