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.

  • "God, in His infinite capacity, seals and heals individuals and families despite tragedy, loss, and hardship. We sometimes compare the feelings we experience in temples as having caught a glimpse of heaven." - Dale G. Renlund 📷 Boston Massachusetts Temple

  • While there is so much righteous excitement about the new civil marriage policy announced by the Church yesterday, we've been thinking about the beauty of temple marriages. We've worked hard for the past two years to create resources that allow Latter-day Saint couples to enjoy powerful and meaningful ring ceremonies without taking away from the temple sealing. 💍

We know the laws of the land change around the world. We know couples have a strong desire to be sensitive to family and friends of all faiths and beliefs. We know couples also want to teach and stand by temple marriages. If you're wondering how to host a ring ceremony worth celebrating, please click the link in our bio. We go over wording ideas, basic guidelines, and ceremony ideas. 💍

More is on the way! Do you have topics you'd like to see us cover? Please leave a comment or send us a DM. We want to create resources that meet your specific needs.

God love us SO much, he reveals His will through living prophets.  We can't wait to hear from #PresNelson and the other leaders of the Church.  We especially enjoy when they talk about marriage and the eternal nature of the family.
