When choosing who will be the maid of honor, it’s very easy for some. Their sister, best friend or cousin are the automatic choice. For others, there might be several people they are close too. While you want your maid of honor to be someone who is dear to you, it’s important to make sure that she can handle all of the responsibilities that come with the title. If your best friend lives thousands of miles away, she might not be the best choice since she wouldn’t be able to plan your showers, help you pick out your dress, or assist with all the details that come with a wedding.
