M is for Maid of Honor
For any marriage, getting the best wedding entourage matters the most.
The most important people in this entourage will be the maid of honor and the best man. The maid of honor will always stand beside the bride and the best man will be there for the groom.
Their basic duties will be to make sure the bride and groom look at their best and their immediate needs are being taken care of.
The maid of honor will usually be seen holding the rear end of the gown in a way the bride doesn’t slip. The best man also ensures no extra confetti is found on the groom’s face, hair, suit, etc.
If the maid of honor and best man don’t do their jobs well during the marriage, it can lead to a lot of discomforts for the couple.
And you surely don’t want that. I’ve seen a bride fall flat on her face because the maid of honor was busy clicking a selfie.
It’s not an easy task and not everyone is up for it. Hence here are some ways you can choose the right people for this task.
1. Siblings and cousins:
Here’s one way you can ensure that your special day is in the hands of the right people. Assigning your siblings or cousins to be the best man/maid of honor can help ease the stress.
Also since they know you, your needs will be taken care of and they’ll make sure you look at your best.
2. Best friends:
If none of your siblings are available or you don’t have any, then the next best option for you is choosing your best friends.
This is because after your families they are the ones who know you in and out. Hence choosing them would help you get through the event with ease.
This is when you hit the last resort. When either of the two options isn’t available, then going ahead with acquaintances is all you can hope for.
These are the people you casually catch up with once a week/month/year maybe. It’s a 50-50 chance you’ll have a pleasant experience.
What are my thoughts on the right choice for the best man/maid of honor for marriage?
Choosing the right people can always be a difficult decision. But if I were given the opportunity I would lean on the first 2 options.
Some would prefer going ahead with their friends and that’s fine too. Just do what makes you happy. In the end, it’s your happy day!
