When it comes to getting married, it is all about choosing the right partner. The one who you will spend your life with. There are some other important choices to make as well. Many brides say that the only reason their wedding happened was thanks to their amazing maid of honor. Clearly, the role has some high demands and you need to ensure you choose the right friend. Once you have the correct person in mind, how do you ask them? Here are seven great ways to ask your best friend to be your Maid of Honor (MoH):
The MoH proposal is like the marriage proposal except you don’t need to hold back at all. Make it as embarrassing as possible. You could take your friend to the movies and arrange some slides of your friendship to be shown on screen first, ending with the message “Will you be my Maid of Honor?”. It is a little bit cheesy, ok it is a lot cheesy, but that is part of the fun.
Call each of your soon to be brides and the MoH individually and ask them to come over on the weekend. Let them think it is just for a normal catch up. Instead have an epic night planned for you and all your girls. In the end, ask them all to be your bridesmaids and finally ask your best friend to be your Maid of Honor. Creating a night to remember will be a great way to start the journey to your wedding together.
Send a gift
Send your best friend a nice gift with a note attached. It is a lovely touch to such a profound moment.
Create a photo album or slideshow of all the good times. Then ask her the question. Going over old memories will highlight what a big step this is for both of you.
Buy her dinner
Take her out for her favorite meal and ask for this special task at the end of the night.
Test her skills
Create a fun emergency that she needs to solve with you. Once she shows her skills, tell her that you knew all along she was right for the job.
Cut the nonsense
While it can be fun to play games and give gifts to your best friend, sometimes the personal touch is the best way to go. This is an epic moment for you and your best friend so depending on her personality it can be better not to crowd it with too much distraction.
Whatever approach you decide on, base it on your friend’s personality and what they would want. When the moment comes, highlight how much they mean to you and how important they will be to you leading up to and on the big day. Also remember, whatever prank you pull, you will get back twice as bad at the bridal party.
