LDS Maid of Honor: Traditional Roles & Responsibilities

LDS Maid of Honor: Traditional Roles & Responsibilities

Other than her mother, the bride most relies on her maid of honor. Even in LDS weddings where the wedding party is less traditional, having a designated maid of honor is more than just an honorary title. The maid of honor is meant to be an emotional support, a stress reliever, and a hard worker. She has many responsibilities to help make sure the big day goes off without a hitch.

If you’re an LDS maid of honor or if you’re wondering what to ask your maid of honor to do, here are the traditional roles and responsibilities of a maid of honor.

Before the Wedding

  • Ensures all bridesmaids and female wedding party members have the proper attire, including dresses and jewelry.
  • Helps the bride during wedding dress shopping.
  • Lends a hand with pre-wedding planning tasks.
  • Hosts or helps host a bridal shower and bachelorette party.

On the Wedding Day

  • Makes sure all the bridal party has their makeup and hair done.
  • Helps the bride get dressed.
  • Helps ensure all guests for the sealing are in attendance.
  • Fluffs the bride’s veil and train for wedding photos.
  • Makes sure the bride eats something.
  • Offers the bride emotional support.

After the Wedding

  • Helps the bride change for her honeymoon (if switching dresses.)
  • If switching dresses, the maid of honor packs the wedding dress up and makes sure it is stored in a designated location.
  • Gathers up gift cards and gifts.
  • Helps package up gifts and cards at the end of the night.

  • "Love is a fragile thing, and some elements in life can try to break it. Much damage can be done if we are not in tender hands, caring hands. To give ourselves totally to another person, as we do in marriage, is the most trusting step we take in any human relationship. It is a real act of faith—faith all of us must be willing to exercise. If we do it right, we end up sharing everything—all our hopes, all our fears, all our dreams, all our weaknesses, and all our joys—with another person.” -Elder Jeffrey R. Holland + + + +

  • Evergreens may not fade and diamonds may keep their shine, but President Thomas S. Monson reminds us to never forget how precious love is: • "Never let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved. Friends move away, children grow up, loved ones pass on. It's so easy to take for granted, until that day when they're gone from our lives and we are left with feelings of "what if" and "if only." •

Don't have regrets. Share the love in your heart today. Read more advice on love and marriage from #PresMonson at the link in our bio. • Beautiful 📷 by @taylorbagshawphotography + + + +
