Her “duties” are to purchase the dress you select based on her budget, and to show up and stand beside you, smile pretty for pictures.  I know that’s an old tired party line, but when it boils down to it, that is what she absolutely MUST do

However, as your Maid/Matron of Honor, if she and the other BM’s choose to, they can plan, organize, pay for, and host your bridal shower & bach party.  These are not required, but they’re nice!  Also, as Maid/Matron of Honor, and really as a Bridesmaid or Best Man, she should be supportive of you, offer to help with projects, and basically just be a good girlfriend.

In return, you should treat her like a friend first, Maid/Matron of Honor second.  Try to have some outings that don’t revolve around you or your wedding.  Have dinner & drinks with no wedding talk once in a while.  If you remember that she is your nearest & dearest friend, it will make her job as Maid/Matron of Honor easier- because she will WANT to help you out & be there for you.

I agree with DaneLady all your Maid/Matron of Honor and BMs HAVE to do is show up, preferably clean and sober wearing the dress you picked out in their budget.  Smiling and joy would be nice but it is not required. Wink

I agree with PPs.  To any other brides out there thinking of making a ‘list of duties’ …. please don’t.  That’s something you give to your paid coordinator, not your closest friends.
