Your maid of honor plays an important role not only on the day of the wedding, but also in the months of planning leading up to it. She'll likely have quite a few tasks of her own, so you'll want her to be well prepared. With that in mind, here are six things many brides forget to tell their MOH before the big day.
How much will it cost? Since your MOH is expected to attend all of the wedding-related events, let her know upfront how much travel is involved and anything else that can help her set a budget. For example, are you planning on a destination wedding? Do you envision all of your maids in high-end designer gowns? Is your heart set on a weekend getaway for your bachelorette? These are all things that will have an impact on your maid of honor's wallet.
Does she need to plan the shower? The bridal shower is one of those events that, traditionally, the MOH and bridal party help to plan. But many times, the bride's mother and/or future mother-in-law take control. Find out who will be in charge of this pre-wedding event ahead of time and then let your MOH know what's expected of her (if anything).
What do you want for the bachelorette party? Not everyone wants a wild weekend in Vegas, so make your wishes clear. Don't simply assume she knows what will make you happy.
Does she need to come dress shopping with you? This is especially important if she doesn't live close by. If you want your MOH with you while you try on dresses for the first time, then give her a head's up so she can make plans to be in town for that special event.
Will she be making a toast? Give your MOH enough time to prepare her speech if you expect her to make one at the reception. And be sensitive to everyone's limitations—not everyone likes to speak in public. In fact, some people get really stressed and nervous over it. If your MOH is one of them, think about letting her skip the big toast.
Where does she need to be the morning of? Figure out where she needs to be the morning of the wedding and what time she needs to be there. Remember, she'll need time to get her hair and makeup done, too.
