12 Famous Maids of Honor
It's easy to forget that celebrities, in between their movies, magazine cover shoots, TV shows, and interviews, do have their own real lives. Case in point: They often attend friends and familes' weddings—and sometimes even serve as bridesmaids or even the maid of honor. Being an MOH is a big job, but clearly these celebs were up for the challenge. Check out some of our favorite celebrity maids of honor (and one man of honor)!
Before serving as MOH at her childhood friend Britany Maack's wedding in 2016, Swift took the bride-to-be to the Reem Acra showroom to help her find her dream wedding dress. Nope, we're definitely not jealous or anything ...
When Ryan Seacrest's sister got married in 2016, the bride chose not a maid of honor, but a man of honor. The lucky guy? Her brother.
Rachel Green was Monica Geller's maid of honor, so obviously, Courteney Cox was going to serve as Jennifer Aniston's MOH at her intimate summer 2015 wedding to Justin Theroux. Only 75 people attended the super-secret wedding. But don't worry, Phoebe wasn't left out of the festivities, as Lisa Kudrow was in attendance as well.
Not only did Dunst play a maid of honor in the movie Bachelorette, she was also the MOH at her childhood friend's wedding in the summer of 2012. She was probably a much better MOH in real life than her control-freak character in the movie.
Hilton served as the maid of honor at her sister Nicky's wedding to British businessman James Rothschild at Kensington Palace in the summer of 2015. The sisters both looked gorgeous, with Paris sporting a floor-length blue chiffon gown and Nicky in a Valentino Haute Couture wedding gown.
McPhee was her older sister Adriana's maid of honor in the summer of 2012. McPhee wore a pretty light pink halter-neck gown to the wedding.
Bilson played matchmaker for The O.C. creator Josh Schwartz, setting him up with her best friend Jill Stonerock, so it was pretty obvious the honor was going to go to her come the wedding day. Bilson worked with her friend and designer Brian Reyes to design four one-of-a-kind bridesmaids' dresses for the bridal party. Now those are some serious #MOHGoals.
Simpson was just a bridesmaid at her sister Ashlee's wedding, but she also took up the important maid of honor duty at friend CaCee Cobb's wedding to Donald Faison in the winter of 2012. Simpson wore a gorgeous black Monique Lhuillier dress to complement the bride's white gown.
Prince William and The Duchess of Cambridge's wedding was one for the history books, but who could forget Pippa's gorgeous white MOH gown and the now-famous backside camera shot that came with it?
The former Pussycat Doll was the maid of honor at her sister Keala Leemon's wedding in 2009, and she even performed a song for the newlyweds' first dance. So sweet!
Spears took up MOH duties for her close friend and assistant Brett Miller back in January of 2011. It was rumored that Spears didn't actually stay at the same hotel as the rest of the guests because it wasn't private enough, and she and her boyfriend left the rehearsal dinner early to order in room service.
Heigl served as the maid of honor in her older sister Meg's wedding in 2007, wearing a simple black v-neck dress. A few months later, Meg was Heigl's maid of honor at her wedding to Josh Kelley.
