JWoww: tips for picking your MOH!

So I stumbled across JWoww's website (yup bored at work!) and aw this advice on picking your MOH:




Picking Nicole to be the maid of honor at my wedding was a no brainer. But it ain’t easy for every bride! Either you’re related by blood or she’s your guidette from another mother… whoever you pick has to be one of your closest BFs

So what happens when you have a few options to choose from? Since choosing your maid of honor is a pretty big deal, here’s my advice to help you narrow it down… 

1. She needs to stay organized when you’re too stressed to figure shit out. Nicole already bought me a wedding planner book and I haven’t even started planning yet, lol! That’s the type of commitment you should look for. 

2. If you’re going to put the party planning in her hands, this girl not only knows the best clubs to hop, but also knows when and where to frolic. Basically, you need to make sure she knows how to have a good time!

3. You trust her to make the right decision and keep cool, even when you’re inbridezilla mode. 

4. She’s gotta get along with EVERYBODY, including your fiancé and family. Don’t pick the girl that seems jealous of you and your man. Trust me, at least one of your girls will be… love is a battlefield! 

5. If one of your BFs is already married, it’s good to consider somebody who knows the ropes when it comes to wedding planning. Maybe she can give you recommendations for a photographer, DJ, flowers, etc. 

If it’s too hard to pick just one of your BFs to stand next to you at the wedding, don’t stress! I personally think it’s okay to have more than one maid of honor, because that just means you’ll have more support! 

What do you think of this advice? Do you have any advice on how to pick a maid of honor?

When I picked my maid of honor I did pick the one who was not jealous.


She was also easy to accommodate, so I would not have to fret about picking flowers she would not like or whatever.


She was spirited and energetic about me getting married and was almost as excited as I was.


This go around I picked my sister to be the officiant as the main role. She knows how to be on stage and she is good at getting excited. 19 years ago she was too young and was only in 8th grade. I really did not have a choice.


If you are really having a hardtime picking one MOH I would say put a name in a hat, or let your FI pick. This girl needs to feel almost as special as you do. Remember she is your go to, but she will also be the go to for your FI. She will be the one giving him your gift. You know you want it given in a very special way.
