1. Your Maid of Honor Should Plan Your Bachelorette Party!
Your MOH (Maid of Honor) should have a large role to play in planning the bride’s bachelorette party, as she knows you best. Be it a classic brunch with your girls or an entertaining bar crawl, your MOH should pick activities and places to fully celebrate the bride. Making sure that nothing is too risqué for the Bride’s taste, and perfecting the guest list. She can work hand-in-hand with the bride to plan this memorable party, or keep her in the dark of the exciting surprises in store! Regardless, the Bachelorette Party should be a night the Bride will remember, largely due to her MOH.

2. Your Maid of Honor Should Support Your Fashion Faux Pas!
When finding that dress – the one that makes you feel completely confident to strut down the aisle – your MOH should be there supporting all the dress do’s and don’ts. With an honest but loving opinion, the MOH should be just as determined shopping, as the bride-to-be. For bonus MOH points: plan on bringing some kleenex to this tender event! Finding the ultimate wedding dress can evoke huge smiles and huge happy tears, as the impending wedding becomes all the more real.
3. Your Maid of Honor Should Keep it Friendly!
Wedding days are emotional, for everyone involved. When a bridesmaid gets stressed or upset, it is up to the MOH to step in and handle the situation. The bride doesn’t need to be fretting over hurt feelings on her special day! The MOH should strive to keep the bridal team close, even potentially planning get-togethers with the intent of bonding. Do your best to make sure no one misses a dress fitting, and keep your cool if chaos ensues. The MOH should do exactly what got her this position: being a good friend! Having your MOH boost your mood, or provide a loving hug, can make wedding stressors disappear for all those involved.
