Thoughts On Being Your Best Friend’s Maid Of Honor

First of all, the name serves its meaning well. It is truly an honor to be able to stand by your best friend on her wedding day. She trusts you with one of the most important days of her life and the whole process leading up to that day. If you grew up together, like my best friend and I, then you have been dreaming about this day since forever. You have been dreaming of the guy she would marry, the dress she would wear, the wedding venue, the bachelorette trip, the list goes on. I didn’t think that time would fly by so fast and that this day would come so soon. It feels like it was just yesterday that she was asking me to be her maid of honor and now we are getting down to only months before the wedding. My best friend is tying the knot in October.

Not only is this an important time for my best friend but this is also an important time for me as her best friend and maid of honor because being the maid of honor is a big role that comes with many duties. A maid of honor is expected to do things like plan a bomb bachelorette trip and make an unforgettable toast. As the maid of honor, I want everything from now on to the day of the wedding to be nothing short of perfect. I want to make the bachelorette trip unforgettable for the bridal party with the cutest decorations (attempting to keep it PG-13 for the most part), fun games and outings. 

As for the toast, which I think is one of the most important obligations of the maid of honor, I know it’s not possible to sum everything up into just a paragraph or so, but I will try my best. I hope to give you a toast that will make you reminisce, laugh, and maybe even cry because I know I will. I really will feel as if I have done my job well as the maid of honor if I can get through the toast without the water works taking over. 

I could go on about this day and what is to come but to my best friend, I just want you to know that I will be there to support you, hold your bouquet, calm your nerves, and more than likely you will have to console me a little because I will cry like a baby. I cannot wait to wish you and your soon-to-be husband a lifetime of happiness on this day. I also cannot wait to break it down with you on the dance floor.
