The maid of honor is the best position among the bridal attendants. The bride has chosen you most likely because she considers you her closest, truest friend, and because she believes that you will be there for her throughout the wedding planning process. One of the major roles the maid of honor should play is coordinating with the other bridesmaids. You can look at yourself as sort of the chair of the bridesmaid committee.

What Exactly Are the Duties Of Maid Of Honor? Lets talk about maid of honor responsibilities? The Maid of Honor duty list is a long one. Make sure you choose someone who you can trust and rely on to be there for you. Your Maid of Honor (or Matron of Honor if she is married) will be the first person you turn to for help throughout planning your wedding and on the actual day. She will be your wedding planning best friend. Maid of Honor duties will require responsibility, patience and time. What will your Maid of Honor be doing for you?

Planning a wedding, for most brides, is often wracked with stress. Many of the factors that play a role in weddings are sensitive issues, especially money, family, and traditions. Plus, you must remember that in most cases, the bride is completely new at this! The goal of a wedding is of course a lifelong marriage; the caveat is that most brides have no experience planning such a large event, and they are likely to agonize over decisions like budget, guest list, vendors, food, logistics, and the list can go on and on. As maid of honor, it is very nice to let the bride know that you will help with whatever you can, and make suggestions for certain areas where you feel you could contribute. This could entail anything from helping decide what flowers to use or making phone calls to addressing invitations or running errands. Be as helpful as you comfortably can.
