Honoured – Maid of Honour
My one-and-only sister recently got engaged. We were all very excited. She’s been with her other half for about 8 years, so we knew (hoped) they would get engaged soon. Apparently my mum was in on the secret as she was hiding the ring, so there was only a couple of us who didn’t know.
My sister text me and my brother both from the restaurant to tell us what had happened. I am so pleased for her. They make a lovely couple and I already feel like her other half is a family member. My brother-in-law to be, my brother and my other half all get on like brothers.
So in the post this week, I got a lovely card from her asking me to be her Maid of Honour. I, of course, accepted immediately. My sister and I have always been close. I’m really looking forward to being part of their big day.
The term Maid of Honour intrigued me though. So I did some research. The original term came from British history. A Maid of Honour was a term for the junior attendant for a royal Queen. I think that suits the role we know and love today. A Maid of Honour is there to assist the bride in any duties required, leading up to the wedding and also on the big day itself.
I’m really looking forward to helping my big sister and my brother-in-law to be plan their special day. I’m sure my sister, Mum and I will have a lot of fun wedding dress shopping and doing whatever else will be required for the big day. Let’s just hope my sister doesn’t turn into bridezilla!
Have you been a Maid of Honour and what kind of things did you help the bride with?
