Discussing finances is both the most awkward and important part of being a maid of honor. While there are certainly some expenses that you are expected to cover, it’s up to you to set an overall budget that you’re comfortable spending. Before doing so, you need to be able to answer the question that most are too embarrassed to ask: what does the maid of honor pay for? 1. Wedding Attire The maid of honor, along with the rest of the bridal party, is expected to cover all wedding attire costs. This includes the dress (plus any necessary alterations), shoes, and any jewelry you’ll be wearing the day of. Occasionally, the bride will gift her bridesmaids with whatever accessories she wants them to wear. 2. Bridal Shower When it comes to the bridal shower, it’s the responsibility of the maid of honor to split the expenses with the rest…

I woke up last Tuesday morning to an email that read, I hope you and your family are safe and well in the midst of everything going on right now. I’m not sure if you’re still able to work in the middle of all of this, but if so, I thought I’d put in a request for a post. I could really use some thoughts for how to help my sister and her fiancé, whose wedding was supposed to be April 18. After explaining her situation a bit further, she went on to say, While there isn’t much out there about what to do when a pandemic hits the world and everyone has to maintain distance, I wondered if you had any tips that could apply. Since receiving that email, I’ve gone back and forth on how to even write a post that could adequately address what’s going on in…

Unfortunately, it’s not as straightforward as you may have hoped.  See the thing about being a modern maid of honor is knowing that no two journeys are the same.
