18 Tips to Help You Be the Best Bridesmaid or Maid of Honor Ever!

By hismrshermr |

Once upon a time I was a bridesmaid, and then a couple of years later I got to be one again. I was a bride twice, but I only like to focus on the second time (that was the time I got it right).

It was also the time in which I experienced planning a wedding and all the joys and stresses that come along with it. When given the honor of being in a friend’s wedding we would like to think we do everything right. We hope that we do our loved ones justice as we represent them on and help them prepare for their big day. For many of us it isn’t until we are brides ourselves (or had a negative experience while in a wedding party) that we truly realize importance of the role of a bridesmaid or maid of honor.

They’re roles so important that should you be called to duty for a best friend or family member’s wedding, you’ll want to be the best you can be. To help you in your quest to be the best, I am sharing 18 tips I’ve picked up from my own experiences as well as some shared with me by other former brides and bridal party members.

    I love the “Be Considerate When It Comes to Social Sharing.” Some people snap and post away with no filter. That is not ok!

    Thanks Maria! I think that should apply to all events. There are some horrible photos of my circulating FB and who knows where :)
