Maid of Honor introMaid of Honor Intro

Definitions
Maid of Honor: (noun)

1. The chief unmarried woman attendant of a bride.

2. An unmarried noblewoman attendant upon a queen or princess

Matron of Honor: (noun)

1. A married woman serving as chief attendant of a bride at a wedding.

The maid of honor is usually a sister or close friend of the bride. It is absolutely okay to have more than one Maid or Matron of Honor in recent times since many brides have a few close friends they want to be included. In history Maids of Honor became more common when weddings were planned. For several days before the marriage, a "senior' maid of honor attended to the bride-to-be. This maid or matron of honor, as we know her today, made sure that the bridal wreath was completed and helped the bride get ready for the wedding. In addition, she helped the bride decorate for the wedding feast.

Being the Maid of Honor has a significant responsibility for you. You are the one who keeps things organized and under control as well as being the "crisis counselor" for the bride :) Your moral support and planning will help make a difference in the outcome of the wedding experience from beginning to end!
