Maid of Honor Lessons
I spent this weekend in Connecticut, serving as the Maid of Honor in my best friend’s wedding. It was a weekend that was a lot of fun, a little emotional, and very exhausting. Along the way, I learned these important lessons:
- You can only be the MOH for your true best friends. My two biggest responsibilities this weekend were helping the bride pee and occasionally checking if she needed to reapply her deodorant. That’s love.
- Getting my makeup professionally done reminds me how little makeup I wear on a daily basis. Still not sure if this is a good or a bad thing.
- Double sided tape is clutch when it comes to making a strapless dress stay put.
- Removing double sided tape is not for sissies. Or people who don’t want red marks all over their chests.
- Giving a toast in front of one hundred people is scary. Making your best friend cry makes the scary part well worth it.
- There is no such thing as a bad wedding cake.
- Dancing is mandatory. Duh.
- I need more occasions in my life that involve Nick getting dressed up and the two of us making fools of ourselves on the dance floor.
- Greasy breakfasts do wonders for your mood when you’re working on very, very little sleep.
- Watching two people you really love come together as their own little family is one of the best feelings in the world. Being a part of the celebration is just an added bonus.
