Bridesmaids Duties I don't See happen often enough | Baltimore Wedding Photographer

Bridal Party at a Pond View Farm Wedding

3 Maid of Honor Duties I Don’t See Happen Often Enough

 

We all know being asked to be the Maid of Honor is a HUGE deal and a ton of responsibility. The Maid of Honor duties that are so often overlooked are a reflection of who the bride chose as her “MOH”. She chose someone who she is the absolute closest to, knowing that you will have to make a TON of decisions on her behalf. They are in charge of the bachelorette party, handling people on the day of the wedding, carrying the bouquet while at the same time making sure the dress looks absolutely PERFECT during the ceremony.

Every time I photograph a wedding, the MOH is someone I rely on EXTENSIVELY to make sure the day goes by smoothly. It is the MOH’s DUTY to make sure the bride stays happy and stress-free on the day of the wedding. Here are three things that should definitely be on the Maid of Honor’s duty list, but I honestly don’t see them as often as you would think:

 

Handle all the bride’s phone calls and texts on the day of the wedding

Yes, I said it. Take. her. phone. away. Be the buffer between her and the rest of the world for one day. Nothing can stress a bride out more than constantly being bombarded with phone calls from florists, officiants, bakers, caterers, etc. Better yet, give your phone number to your wedding pros. It makes it even easier to be their point of contact.

 

Know the wedding day, and delegate for the bride

Understand what the bride’s vision is for the wedding day, BEFORE the actual day. That way, she doesn’t have to stress about where we are in the timeline, and what still needs to be done.  DELEGATE different duties to the bridesmaids and groomsmen. This way, fires get put out before the bride even hears about them.

 

Check-in with the coordinator. REGULARLY.

I absolutely LOVE working with coordinators! Wedding coordinators can be a HUMONGOUS help during the wedding day. Coordinators keep the day going smoothly and can be an extra point of contact between the bridal party and the rest of the wedding professionals. They don’t, however, know the bride as you do. You’ve spent countless hours with your best friend planning the best day of their life. The coordinator can make great decisions they know will work, but if it wouldn’t fit in with the bride’s vision, they need to be made aware. Your wedding photographer can step in as the role of a day-of-coordinator in a pinch, but nothing is as good as the real thing!

I hope this helps. As always, if you have any questions about what will make your wedding go smoothly, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Be Amazing,

Tyler 🙂
