There are so many different roles that play a part in the perfect wedding. Learn what each member of your wedding party is responsible for!
Pop Quiz: Traditionally, whose job is it to help the bride pick out her wedding day jewelry? You’d be surprised! It’s not the maid of honor or sister of the bride — but the bride’s mother! How strange, right? As much as I love my mom, I could totally picture her enthusiastically picking something horribly gaudy for me to wear around my neck. Maybe it’s just me, but I really rather look like a bride than a blinged-out rapper when I walk down the aisle….
Obviously, this traditional mother-of-the-bride duty and other things MOH/bridesmaids have to do for the bride will not be the same for every couple’s wedding. Some modern brides may prefer to do everything themselves…some some may want to assign special roles to specific family members or friends. Either way, it’s crucial that couples decide who will do what for their big day in a way that makes sense to them!
