Now that you’ve found your dream wedding dress, it’s time to start selecting your Bridesmaid and maid of Honor from your relatives, friends and from your grooms-to-be list.
Formal weddings have a half dozen or more bridesmaids in addition to the maid of honor. Make sure you are clear on what you expect from each of them and try to tell them their responsibilities before, during and after the big day.
The maid of honor should be the bridesmaid you feel closest to, focus your decision on the strength of your bond and not the length of your friendship. The main duties include planning the bridal shower, helping the bride select her and possible suppliers list and spread invitations.
On the other hand, the bridesmaids assist the maid/matron of honor and bride.
Here are some helpful tips on how to select your maid of honor and bridesmaids:
1. Start by writing your wish list of attendants. Always add your fiancé’s picks, and those who are close to both of you.
2. How long have you known them? She should be someone that has been in your life for a long time and will continue to be.
3. Select only those who are adults.
4. Choose family members who live in your area.
5. Select a sibling over a distant cousin.
