Hen Party Tips for the Maid of Honour
Being chosen as the maid of honour is…well, an honour! But for a lot of people it can be a stressful as it is flattering, with many women feeling like they have a big responsibility to the bride to make her hen party the best it can be. This is totally normal but it’s really nothing to worry about. Here are some handy hen party planning tips for the maid of honour.
First of all, the most important hen party duty: organising the hen party. Make sure to check with the bride what kind of hen party she’s after. You can still throw in a few small surprises here and there of course, but ultimately it’s her day so it’s her way. Whether she’s after something chilled out or action-packed there are plenty of fantastic hen party activities out there.
Second, as the Maid of Honour you are now the leader of the bridesmaid troupe. Don’t let it go to your head! It’s your job to guide the other bridesmaids through their own duties, like making sure everyone gets to the dress fittings on time, has the right jewellery, so and so forth.
Don’t be afraid to speak your mind. When it comes to being a maid of honour, honesty is the best policy. If you and the girls don’t like the bridesmaid dresses, then you should bring that up, gently but clearly. Carefully suggest some alternative options so you avoid any unwanted fallings out.
Offer to help the bride out with some of the pre-wedding tasks such as addressing the invites, make the wedding favours and so on.
Sometimes all you really need to do to be a good bridesmaid is being a shoulder to cry on. With the wedding planning it’s a stressful time for the bride to be, so being there to support her is an invaluable part of being a bridesmaid.
