Choosing your Maid of Honor can be a tricky task, especially if there are lots of ladies in your life that you love. How is it possible to choose just one, and exclude the others from the honor? Here are some things you should know before making this big decision.
1. Let Love Motivate Your Choice
Be motivated by love, not fear. Think about how happy you will be to give this friend or sibling such an honor. Don’t let the fear of disappointing anyone, or the fear of causing a rift in your relationships stop you from picking the person you truly want to fill this role. If you handle the situation gracefully, no one will feel hurt.
2. Think About The Past, Present and Future
Don’t have tunnel vision only for your present situation. Think about the people in your past that have been a big part of your life, as well as who you can see being there for you in the future.
3. Use A Mix Of Logic And Emotion
Your Maid of Honor will have some big responsibilities, like planning your bachelorette party, communicating with your bridal party, helping you complete your bridal look, and being at various pre-wedding events. Think about your candidates logically: will they have the time and resources necessary to pull it all off?
Will they be on time, ready to support you? In addition, listen to your heart. You don’t just want to pick your most organized and available friend — you need to really adore, trust, value, enjoy and cherish the person that you pick.
Early on in your wedding planning, you will be faced with this decision. Your maid of honor will then help you with some of the major planning and prep for your big day. Choose wisely!
