So these recent discussions have really got me thinking about the serious disconnect between what people consider an honor, a task, and a job. Brides seem to think EVERYTHING is an honor, people like me and you think there are some significant differences.
So what do you consider an honor, a task, or a job in a wedding? And at what point would you decline? Here's mine:
honor - anything involved with the ceremony including MOH, bridesmaid, BM, groomsmen, flower girl, ring bearer. I would even include officiant, musician, reader, and usher into this as well.
task - programs, guest book, gift table, gift loader into car, DIY projects, and hosting pre wedding events. This seems to be the biggest gray area. None of this seems like an honor to me, but not necessarily an insult either.
job - set up, serving food, break down, and clean up. Things that you would pay a vendor to do. This is the lowest of the low to me.
Personally I would decline anything that's a task or a job.
