Last night, I literally dreamed my entire MOH speech for my best friend’s wedding… that by the way, isn’t until 2016. We have been texting and pinterest-ing wedding ideas back and forth since she asked me to be her MOH a few weeks ago. All of this wedding talk has got me thinking of all my other MOH duties. Being that this is my first time as an appointed MOH, I decided to google and find out what exactly is expected of me, according to social standards. Luckily, based on The Knot’s detailed MOH description, nothing was really a surprise to me… but I can’t think it includes everything… does it?
- Lead the Bridesmaid Entourage
- Dress Shopping!
- Attend all Pre-Wedding parties
- Plan Bachelorette party
- Host/Co-Host Bridal Shower
On top of all the standard MOH duties, Katie lives back home in upstate NY, so I hope the distance won’t affect too much. I’ve already made the decision that I’ll be traveling a little bit more on the weekends, especially as things start to pick up. Not to mention I need to get there within the next month, so we can officially celebrate the engagement and the MOH duties, since she asked me over FaceTime!
To all my fellow MOH’s out there, what are some tips you’ve learned after going through your MOH duties?
Thanks in advance!
