My best friend from high school got engaged last winter.
She is getting married in March 2011.
She asked me to be her maid of honour.
Discounting being a flower girl at my cousin’s wedding about 15 years ago, I have never been in a bridal party.
March 2011 is approaching quickly.
And I have no idea how to throw bridal showers or bachelorette parties or really what I ought to be doing as maid of honour, besides agreeing with everything the bride says.
*cue Puss in Boots eyes in a plea for help*
Does anyone have some advice for me? What should I keep in mind when throwing these parties? How far in advance before the wedding should they be happening? What duties should I be doing that I might not have thought of? Any tips, advice, or stories from weddings that you have been involved in would be awesome!
