Sarah and I have been working together since 2009. She is my BFF. We’re lucky to get to work with each other. In 2013, she married the love of her life, Tim. It was a magical day! I know because I was there, right by her side, as her Maid of Honor.
Sarah delivered a bouquet of flowers to my day job and in the accompanying note, she asked me to be her Maid of Honor! It was a very exciting day; I had never been asked to be someone’s Maid of Honor before! I had a little research ahead of me, but a lot of help and love surrounding me too. Sarah picked some pretty awesome ladies to stand with her as bridesmaids! I would not have handled the task nearly as well without all their support and creativity.
We thought we’d take some time today to shine a spotlight on the Maid/Matron of Honor role by providing some tips and highlighting some of our MOH images from this past season! I believe the most important thing to remember as a MOH is to always listen to the bride, your BFF, and be a beacon of positivity. In general, fostering a positive attitude throughout the whole process should be considered a MOH top priority, but if we’re talking specifics, she should be open to the following tasks:
As I said before, the most important thing about being a MOH is focusing on your BFF! She picked you because she trusts you, loves having you around and feels most herself when you’re by her side. It’s an important but fun responsibility. Check out some of our 2017 MOH’s rocking their duties with style and grace!
