There’s no rule book. It’s your day. Do what you like.

I have two moh for this very reason! And they are sharing jobs with my mum, all the other bridesmaids are young, both my moh are in high intensity jobs, one at uni one car body work so it is good to share out jobs, and if one can't attend an event pre wedding the other will, I also could choose between them xx

Of course you can! I had two other bridesmaids and I fished jobs equally to all three xx

I see no problem in that :) go for it, some people will be better at other jobs than others

What jobs are people giving their maid of honours? I have two and they keep asking for a job but other than the hen, I haven’t got anything for them, just curious xx

Just like a few others I’m wondering what jobs people are giving too!! I can’t think of anything I wouldn’t want to be doing myself x

Of course you can! It’s completely your day and there isnt any right or wrong to planning a wedding! 🙂

I think the only job I’ve given my wedding party was for my bridesmaid to make a reception playlist for me as I knew she’d be awesome at it! Other than that I’ve really enjoyed planning everything myself and just asked for opinions on anything me and fiancé have decided on xxx

There is clearly a rule book about weddings I knew nothing about 😂 Who's actually going to stop you?

Why give anyone jobs? Its your wedding, sort everything you need yourself and get your htb to sort out his 🤷‍️

Absolutely. I'm maid of honour for a friend next year but due to health reasons haven't been able to get as involved as I would otherwise. Bride has been totally understanding and has even said she's happy for me to just wear the dress and walk down the aisle. Your day your way, and the rest of your wedding party will probably completely respect that and be happy to help out xx

Rebecca Scott imagine if you had no jobs 🤷‍️ it’s practically your wedding too

Other than the hen party your bridesmaids don't really have much they're expected to do...I can't imagine what else you could be giving your maid of honour?? Personally I wouldn't even have a maid of honour, sounds to me like saying the bridesmaids are your best friends/sisters, and the maid of honour is your bestest best friend/closest sister...dunno just sounds like overkill to me

Jesus some of these replies are a little unfriendly! Of course you can, many hands make light work. If anyone wants a list of jobs I'm giving my Mum, maid of honour and hubby to be shout up - I'm not doing it all!

Yes of course you can. My MoH is making our sweet table for us. It’s her wedding present to us so maybe not a ‘job’. We’ve asked one bridesmaid to make the children’s favour bags and another to make toiletry baskets for the toilets. On the day they have a role too...handing out confetti, being in charge of music etc. You can’t do it all and they wanted to be involved and to help out x

Like the best man and groomsmen/ushers, bridesmaids if they wish are incredibly helpful when it comes to making invitations, decorations, seating plans etc, their advice can help develop the style of the wedding, they can help with decorating the venue and clearing up afterwards and then throughout the wedding they will be helping people get to where they need to be, organising people for photos, making sure the bride is looking good (wonky veils, smudged lipstick etc) and in some cases helping her go to the loo in her enormous dress! There are all sorts of jobs the bridal party is responsible for. You can delegate as much or as little as you like depending on whether your bridesmaids are willing and trustworthy enough.
