That’s great news! Congrats! What is your Maid/Matron of Honor helping you with? I would maybe gift her wedding planning book and help her on the wedding planning so that she could have her dream wedding. I would also help her to pick the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, help her address her invitations, and help plan the bridal shower! Yay! Sounds like fun.

That’s so exciting – congrats! I’ve never been the Maid/Matron of Honor, but I think what I would appreciate most from mine would be asking about the wedding/being interested in it, throwing a shower, and occasionally checking to see if I need help with anything else.

Congrats!  That is a big honor.  I’ve never been a MOH before either, I think I would probably ask her what it is she’ll expect from you.  And whatever it is, I’d get on it right away.  She didn’t give you guys much time, yikes! 🙂

That’s so awesome! My Maid/Matron of Honor gave me a subscription to Brides when I got engaged, and so when she got engaged last month I sent the same thing to her.  I love being able to talk/plan our weddings around the same time.  

My main thing is to just try and be there for her whenever she needs me.  She’s planning from out of state, so I made it a point to be available when she comes into town to go dress shopping with her. She did the same thing for me last weekend, so it’ll be dress shopping round two this weekend when we go for her.

Good luck and have a blast!

I’ve never been an Maid/Matron of Honor, but i wish mine would be more involved…ive done everything, and some of my bridesmaids have been more supportive than she has been….kinda hurtful, but oh well.

my ideal Maid/Matron of Honor would want to be involved with the big stuff – picking the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, picking my dress, showers, etc. I think if you show interest in the planning and helping…that means the world…to me anyway.
