Congratulations Hun!! Your friend must think very highly of you. It’s hard enough for the bride to choose a small group of women to stand at her side but to pick that one special person, the one that will lead the group, is a huge honour…hence the title.

Being an MOH comes with expectations from the bride and those that will see you during the planning stages and on the wedding day. That’s right, people will also be watching you.

The title also comes with expenses. An MOH can spend anywhere from $300.00 to $1000.00+. The totals will all depend on formality of the wedding, cultural background, size of wedding, your dress, bridesmaid’s participation and your budget.

If there is any reason why the two of you should not be joined as bride and MOH, speak now or forever hold your peace. Meaning, if you don’t have the time or money, there’s nothing wrong with backing down. Talk to the bride about your concerns…after all, she’s your best friend.


  • Go wedding gown shopping with the bride and be honest when she steps out of the changing room.
  • Help select bridesmaid’s dresses, pay for your dress & accessories.
  • Call all the bridesmaids when it’s time for shopping and fittings.
