Maid of Honor Responsibilities

Some specific duties of a Maid of Honor include helping the bride choose the bridemaids’ dresses and making sure each bridesmaid has one, organizing the selection and purchase of the bridesmaids gift to the bride, and offering assistance through all the wedding preparations. A Maid of Honor could offer to help go on errands for the bride, go shopping with the bride, help address invitations or make calls, and host or organize a pre-wedding wedding party with the help of all the bridesmaids. During the ceremony, the Maid of Honor holds the bride’s bouquet and will sign the marriage certificate as a witness. At the reception, the Maid of Honor should always be available to help and to make guests feel welcome. This could include gathering guests for the bouquet toss or getting people on the dance floor. Traditionally, a Maid of Honor also offers a toast to the couple at the reception, so be prepared!  
In addition to being supportive through the process of planning and on the wedding day itself, there are some financial responsibilities. Attendants are responsible for purchasing their wedding clothes and accessories, arranging and paying for their transportation (the wedding hosts should provide hotel accommodations if necessary), and for buying a personal gift or contributing to a group gift from the bridal party to the couple.
When in doubt, it is always helpful to ask the bride what she needs or wants you to do.
