Being the maid of honor is a special task, but it’s not without hard work! Here are a few of your maid of honor duties ON the wedding day:
- Guest Wrangler — If something goes wrong with the guests, the bridesmaids, or one of the grooms, you’re likely to be called upon to handle it.
- Bride’s Assistant –– You’ll likely spend time getting ready alongside the bride, but you’ll also need to be available to answer phone calls, respond to text messages, field complaints, deal with the mother-in-law, and any other tasks that need handling. You will be the bride’s personal assistant until you need to take your place for the ceremony.
- Hype Woman — Your job is to keep the bride happy and upbeat before her wedding. Do whatever it takes to stop her from stressing out or hyperventilating. You take on all the wedding stress so she doesn’t have to.
- Bartender/Waiter –– If she needs a drink, you get one made for her! If she wants to eat, you make sure she has the right kind of food and pronto! Your job is to get her whatever she wants to eat or drink–it will keep her calm and happy on the big day.
- Coordinator — Unless you have a day-of coordinator, you’ll probably have to do a lot of the leg work of running around and keeping things on track. Thankfully, the parents of the bride and groom will be able to help you.
- Vendor Go-Between — If any problems arise with the vendors, your job is to handle them for the bride. You work out finding a new caterer, florist, or DJ because the old one dropped out at the last minute. You make sure those flowers and meals are delivered on time, and that the bar is properly stocked. Any problems are YOURS to deal with.
