A huge responsibility has already been handed over to you once you are proclaimed as the maid of honour by your bride-to-be bestie!
From arranging the perfect hen do to picking the dress to help out in the wedding…there is just so much to do. This might sometimes even lead to the most confusing and unmanageable situations for you. But do not worry, we are here for help. Read on for a comprehensive checklist that will allow you to prepare in the best possible manner for the entire process.
Picking The Right Dress – One of the most important things for every bride is the wedding gown that she has been waiting to wear on her big day! Since she is going to be busy with a lot of things, it might be a bit jittery for her to choose the perfect gown. You need to speak to the bride and help her select the best one available.
Get A Gift For The Bride – You have known your bestie for years now, and it is time that you make sure to give her the best present as a mark of your unbreakable friendship! You can either choose a gift by yourself, or you can even ask her what she wants. Whatever you bring, do not forget to add a personal touch to it.
Throw The Perfect Hen Do – No wedding is complete without this activity. You can consult the bride-to-be on what she wants and get an idea of her preferences. Make sure to provide for any unique demands or any specific hen do activities that the bride might wish to do on her hen do.
Check Arrangements For The Accommodation And Transport – The bride would not be having the time or the clarity of mind to double check and keep a tab on everything that is going around her. This is where you come for help as you can make sure that some duties of the bride are relieved. Checking arrangements for the accommodation and transport of guests counts as a big help too.
Wedding Rehearsal – It becomes your job to make sure that everything is going according to what you have planned for the main day. The wedding rehearsal is one such helpful thing where you have to bring in your best and see to it that everything is organised in the best manner possible!
Stay The Night Before And Take Care Of The Rings – It is a very common thing for the bride to get the jitters on the night before the big day, so it’s a good idea to stay with her and have a drink. Do not forget to take the rings and keep it safe with you until the final time comes.
Help In The Ceremony – Assist the guests in being seated and tell the photographer how do you want those candid shots! Once the ceremony begins see to it that you are ready with all the things that will be required!
Fire Up The Reception – Once the wedding is over help the guests move to the reception area, and help everyone mingle. Dance with the best man and perform the fun rituals. Let the party begin!
Make The Best Speech – The last part of your duties as the maid of honour, give the most heartfelt speech ever for your bestie that beautifully defines your friendship over the years and wish the couple a happy married life ahead!
Once you all the items on this checklist are completed with efficiency you can proudly call yourself the best, maid of honour ever!!
