@Moonstone18:  How long before she got engaged, did she say she would make you MOH? I don’t think she should be held to it if she said it years before she was engaged.

In any case, I agree that you shouldn’t do the “moh responsibilities”. Leave that to the girls who she made MOH. (Not that I think the MOH should do much, except plan the bachelorette party and the bridal shower if there is one).

@Moonstone18:  why so many MOHs anyways? It does sound like when she finally got engaged she didnt live up to her decision to make you her MOH. I would be upset as well. She should have just picked one person. Anyways it is not your responsibility to plan anything…you didn’t get chosen as the MOH. She has to now rely on the other two, not you. And I would make it clear that planning is the MOHs responsibility…but try to say it in a nice way. Good luck.

@Moonstone18:  That really stinks, but like the other poster said, it also depends on when she promised you the position.


I agree with everyone else when I say, if she didn’t give you the title, you shouldn’t do the work.

@Moonstone18:  It seems its a concensous that you don’t have to plan or do any of the MoH duties. That she’s asked you to, that I would find upsetting. Yes it would be a bit hurtful that she sort of “unasked” you especially when you consider the relationships, but if you want to be there for her, do just that, don’t worry about anything else.

Tell her you’re so happy to stand with her on her day and you’ll assist the two MoH if they ask for help.

that would be a way to make a subtle point that you’re not taking over their job and you don’t have to go to the MoH with your ideas, jsut wait to be approached 🙂

don’t do the MOH duties since you are not the MOH, be a bridedmaid.  contribute as a bridesmaid.  offer your opinion on things, but let the MOH take the lead where she is supposed to.

i would be hurt, she wanted you to be MOH, then didn’t ask you, but wants you to do all the duties of the MOH…

@Moonstone18:  I agree with others, you definitely should not be doing MOH responsibilities, and that is rude of her to even suggest it. If she asks you to do or plan things, I would politely say that you understand that the two MOH’s are the ring leaders, and you are more than happy to give them advice while they are planning!

@Moonstone18:  she technically never unasked you, since she only ever even mentioned it while it was still day dreaming. Although, if she was saying it in the time leading upto the engagement, and pulled a 180 that’s rude.

Idon’t recommend doing MOH responsibilities unless you’re the MOH. I did that for my MOH, because at the time she planned her bridal party we had lost touch. Her MOH, wss a huge flake and didn’t help with anything.
