What is the role of a Maid of Honor?
I know sometimes it is difficult to pick your maid of honor. You have to think about the job the maid of honor does. They are your right-hand woman, who has to be able to help you without adding on stress. The maid of honor’s job is to make sure you feel beautiful, but also give you an honest opinion. The maid of honor should help you with wedding planning, making decisions and navigating family difficulties and other stresses. They are the person you have a great and loving connection with that will also get the bachelorette party all set and ready to go. Keep in mind that the maid of honor should be a good listener and has a strong shoulder for you to lean on. The maid of honor will make sure you are the first priority on your wedding day. The maid of honor should be the leader of keeping you calm on your big day and ensuring that all of the bridesmaids are on the same page.

Your maid of honor is your soulsister, while your fiancé is your soulmate.
How to choose your Bridesmaids?
Choosing your bridesmaids might be as difficult as picking your maid of honor. I know what’s going through your head, “I don’t want to leave anyone out or am I making the right decision?” Those are two big things, but it’s your wedding and your decision at the end of the day. You can have a huge bridal entourage or just a small one. You have to be honest with yourself and stay true to who you want standing next to you. Sometimes writing a list and writing pros and cons might help as well. Think about their responsibilities. It includes buying their own dress, travel expenses, pitching in for the bachelorette party, and paying for their own hair and make-up too. Evaluate your needs and expectations as well. Do what feels right to you and make sure you are happy at the end of the day!!
