What every Maid of Honor must know!

Best Girls are priceless!

Being a Maid/Matron of Honor can be hard work! However, knowing in advance what is expected of you can make a world of difference if you want to be exceptional. Here are 10 things a Maid/Matron of Honor should know when accepting the offer of being the brides 'personal assistant'.
  1. Plan on assisting the Bride in selecting her dress as well as the bridal parties attire.
  2. Offering assistance with addressing invitations and calling for final RSVP's is a must.
  3. Helping the Bride determine seating arrangements is mandatory.
  4. Being the on-call girl for discussions with any details, favors or decor is important!
  5. Offering your help with any day-of tasks should be a given! 
  6. Taking care of the brides train (if applicable) once she approaches the alter area is mandatory.
  7. Taking the brides bouquet during the ceremonies ring exchange is a no-brainier.
  8. Assisting the bride to and from the restroom to freshen up is the right thing to do.
  9. Yes, collecting gifts, envelopes and being the last to leave is exceptional!
  10. Plan on giving your time on the day after to ensure that any loose ends are taken care of can be difficult, yet necessary.
Whatever you do, please do not try and criticize, judge or disagree with the Brides flavors. Every wedding is truly a personal reflection of the couples style and should be honored as that. Being an exceptional 'Best Girl' requires patience, understanding and most of all, love.
