Your Best Man and Maid of Honor duties are very important at your wedding – and are essential to you and your spouse on your big day.

Remember, they are there to help. Through the planning to the day of duties – here are some of the things it would be helpful for both of them to know:

Maid of Honor Duties:

  • Manage other bridesmaids responsibilities: final fittings, picking up dresses, orchestrating bridal shower and bachelorette party, etc… 
  • Intercept all questions, phone calls, etc… the bride should not have to worry about anything! 
  • Help the bride get dressed – there are a lot of layers! Helping with undergarments, zippers, shoes, etc… is a big help – and good photo opportunities! 
  • Be the brides witness during the signing of the marriage license.
  • Make sure bride’s gown is straightened once she gets to the altar – this is important for her ceremony photos.
  • Hold her bouquet during the ceremony – but don’t let her forget it when she walks out after I Do! 
  • Make sure everything in the dressing room has been packed and moved to the appropriate location. This is something the MOH should organize with the planner. 

Best Man’s Duties:

  • Coordinating with groomsmen to guarantee they have had their final fittings and have picked up their tux on time.
  • Bachelor Party! 
  • Organize rehearsal dinner speeches (for themselves, the parents, or whoever else might want to do a quick toast!)
  • Work alongside the planner to make sure the groom and groomsmen are ready on time. 
  • Be the room’s witness during the signing of the marriage license.
  • Write down your wedding toast!
