3 Keys for Choosing the Best Maid of Honor for Your Wedding

There are many decisions to make when planning your wedding - one of the most important decisions for a bride is choosing a maid of honor. For some brides, they've known who their maid of honor will be since childhood. But for many brides, the decision can be fraught with stress. 

Choosing the best maid of honor for your wedding
Consider these three keys when choosing your maid of honor and you'll be well on your way to making the right decision:


  1. Will she have the time needed for maid of honor duties? Being a maid of honor can be a bit time consuming. For starters, there's planning showers and bachelorette parties, then there's the parties themselves! Then, there's the biggest duties of all - being there for the bride. From dress shopping to lending an ear, she'll be at your beck and call for a year or more - will she have the time free to be there for you?
  2. Can she afford it? Being a bride can be expensive, but so can being a maid of honor. From buying the dress to hair and makeup, the costs can add up quickly. Then depending on your specific situation, you may end up traveling for your bachelorette party (weekend getaways are an extremely popular option). If your first choice for maid of honor might have a hard time paying for the expenses associated with the roll, you may make it awkward for her by asking. Better to consider someone else close that wouldn't put an undue hardship on your first choice.
  3. Will she make it "all about you?" There are few times in your life where you are as much the center of attention as when you're getting married - enjoy the time, you deserve it! But, sometimes even the closest friends can make it...well, all about them. Your BFF might be the first person you think of for maid of honor, but if she's also sometimes a drama queen who gets jealous of others who are the center of attention, it might be best to choose someone else. Better to make the harder decision now than to be upset down the road when your maid of honor makes the wedding about her instead of you!
Think carefully about these factors and which maid of honor will make your day the most special. You'll surely have a wonderful wedding celebration!
