After the wedding witness dress, we continue to talk about wedding etiquette and see how the poor and stressed-out maid of honor must dress, the one who basically has to do everything!
The perfect wedding etiquette does not exist, but there is the emergency room for the maid of honor, the most stressed woman on earth, the one who must ensure that everything runs smoothly for the bride.
The first thing to do is dress her up.
I chose a V-neck lace dress that you can buy here: https://www.babyonlinewholesale.com/chaya-sheath-v-neck-floor-length-lace-navy-blue-prom-dress-g150

The wedding etiquette for the maid of honor begins with her gown
The maid of honor, according to the wedding etiquette, must be dressed in a way that is appropriate to the wedding dress code.
In practice it is the same etiquette as the wedding witness one.
The color of the dress must be the same as that of simple bridesmaids. No to black, white or red and yes to pastel colors.
Who is the maid of honor?
In recent years, in Italy the fashion of bridesmaids and maid of honor has landed. A trend imported directly from the United States and which is becoming increasingly popular all over the world.
Even cousin Emi had her swarm of bridesmaids!
The maid of honor, unlike the other bridesmaids, is a kind of wedding planner.
On her shoulders, in fact, fall most of the marriage and the bachelorette party organization.
She is often more stressed than the bride herself and if something goes wrong she takes the blame.
In essence, the bridesmaid is the bride’s armed extension!
Maid of honor at the cinema
The film that made the figure of the maid of honor more popular is 27 dresses, with the very nice Katherine Heigl forced to do the bridesmaid in 27 gowns, with 27 different looks.
At one point she opens her closet and realizes that it is a kaleidoscope of extravagant clothes and that she has been a bridesmaid too many times. It’s time to get married!
In the Italian wedding etiquette , the figure of the maid of honor was not contemplated until a few years ago, this role was of the witness of the wedding but had fewer duties than the maid of honor proper.
Today we have to deal with an Italian wedding that no longer has the flavor of the past but has turned into a cosmopolitan ritual.
So, hoping she will survive ….. long life to the maid of honor!
