Cupid's Pulse Article: Bridesmaids featuring Kristen Wig and Maya RudolphCupid's Pulse Article: Bridesmaids featuring Kristen Wig and Maya Rudolph

She’s broke, she’s single and now she’s the maid of honor.  Annie (Kristen Wig) is set to be the maid of honor for her best friend Lillian (Maya Rudolph), and she’s backed up by a rag-tag team of bridesmaids.  Annie has to find a way to surpass her life situation to prove to Lillian and the other bridesmaids how far you’ll go for a best friend. Critics are saying this is The Hangover fused with a chick flick.

What are the duties of a maid of honor?

Cupid’s Advice:

It seems hectic leading up to the big day, but here are the three most important jobs if you’re chosen to be the maid of honor:

1. Go-to-girl: From helping to pick out the venue to deciding on invitation design, you have a bigger say in planning out the little details … maybe even more than the groom-to-be!  Choose wisely.

2. The maid’s speech: At the reception, you’re going to have to give a big, heartfelt speech.  A tip: avoid drinking too much alcohol prior to the address.

3. Party, party, yeah: Of course, you’ll have to plan and host the bridal shower and bachelorette party.  Try to keep it lighthearted and fun, whether that means bowling and beer or a night of Vegas-style debauchery.
