Unfortunately we all can’t have Monica or Rachel as our maid of honor, but we can have someone who we hold dear to our heart. The one who sticks by your side and who can handle both the honor and the responsibilities related with the event.
So whether you have a loving sister, a crazy close group of girlfriends or an amazing sister-in-law, it’s up to you to decide who gets the “Maid of Honor” title. Just make sure you're making the right choice for you, as the MOH you choose directly impacts the success of your wedding
While we can’t offer a magical formula, but here are some tips on how you can go about in choosing your maid of honor wisely.
IF YOU HAVE MULTIPLE BFF’s
To avoid the drama between friends, it may be wise to choose your sister as your maid of honor. Friends often think they can't trump the family card, so even if they have expectations of being the MOH, there's no way they'll be mad at you for choosing your sister over them.
PICK A GOOD LISTENER
You will need a maid of honor who knows you well, and also be someone who can listen and pick up on your real needs and wants. That way, all the minutest details of your wedding ideas and bachelorette will be the best reflection of you.
SOMEONE WHO LIVES IN CLOSE PROXIMITY
Whether it’s a destination wedding or a traditional Indian wedding, choose someone that can be there, and not have to miss major events like outfit shopping, make-up trials and cake tastings.
CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITE SOCIAL BUTTERFLY
The Maid of Honor who likes to socialize and is comfortable being in larger group, will help in making for smoother wedding planning. Being able to happily organize the Sangeet rehearsals or after party, will definitely take a load off the bride in knowing the MOH has it covered.
WHO HAS MORE EXPERIENCE
It is always a bonus to have someone who knows the ropes and what to expect from an Indian wedding. Some one who has the experience will likely be more supportive of the wedding events, instead of asking silly questions to the bride.
SELECT AN ALL-ROUNDER
From planning the bachelorette party and wedding decorations to attending vendor meetings and crafting DIY projects, there are a ton of responsibilities that come with being a MOH. That’s why; it is advisable to select someone who is an all-rounder.
Just remember that you're giving somebody a precious gift, which is bound to them happy beyond words.
