My SIL and her Fiance, who have been engaged for about a year now, have asked me to be the MOH. I'm so happy for them and can't wait. They're wanting to get married at the courthouse (next month) and throw a huge reception afterwards-as "Our" family (OHs and SILs) is all 3-4 states away and most likely will not be able to make it, but her Fiance's family all lives here in NC.
I've tried to do some research on what the duties are exactly, but all I can find are those for a big wedding-which this won't be- and besides giving a speech, not much on what my duties will be for the reception-which will be about the only "real" thing that will be planned. And what I have found on the matter, ATM just seems to be a big cluster of chaos, TBH.
Can anyone help me and give me a basic run down and tips of what needs to be done?!
Hen night/bachelorette (sp?) party
Help pick dresses and attend fittings for opinion/support
Take care of brides things during ceremony ready for reception (Change of clothes, spare make up, purse etc)
Be there when she needs to rant. Communicate with wedding party members about plans
Anything she asks for help with really. Some brides are quite needy and will constantly ask for help, others will just let you know when they have someything specific for you
Is she going to be wearing a traditional wedding dress for the reception? If so, generally the MOH/Bridesmaids help with any bathroom needs. Definitely try to throw a bridal shower/bachelorette party if she wants one. Most of the time, MOH is the one who signs as a witness for the bride on the marriage certificate. HTH!
