I asked my friend to be my Maid/Matron of Honor last night. She’s super excited and I know she’ll do a great job.
She asked what her roles and responsibilities will be and I want to make sure I don’t miss anything.
Is there any other than the shower, stagette, showing up, acting as a witness and generally helping out that falls under the traditional R&Rs of the MOH?
(I will not be having any bridesmaids.)

Is the stagette the bach party? You might want her to be responsible for bustling your gown as well…

I have my Maid/Matron of Honor coordinating the bachelorette party and working in conjunction with my mother to plan the shower. She’s there as a support system and will probably help me out with DIY projects as they come up. You can have her as involved as you want.

My sister is my Maid/Matron of Honor. Her job is to help me pick out my dress and hers, show up to the rehersal, get ready with me the morning of the wedding and stand by my side during the ceremony.
That being said, she’s my sister so I imagine she would do most of those regardless. 😉

Her only responsibility is to get the dress, show up clean and sober, hold your bouquet, and act as a witness. Parties and planning help is awesome, but they are optional. You can let her know that traditionally the Maid/Matron of Honor plans the bach. party and maybe the shower but that she certainly doesn’t have to do any of that. You can also tell her that you might ask for help for xyz if she is available and doesn’t mind. =)
