Looks like Taylor Swift is already fulfilling her MOH duties! In February, Swift’s childhood BFF Britany Maack tapped the pop star for the position in a super-cute way. And Swift is taking the job seriously. The “Bad Blood” singer accompanied the bride-to-be to Reem Acra‘s New York City showroom on Tuesday to tackle the ultra-important task of finding a wedding dress.
“I’ve never been a maid of honor before. This is my first time, and it’s really, really important to me because this is my best friend, who I’ve known since I was born. And she’s marrying someone I’ve known since I was 4,” Swift told PEOPLE.
Reem Acra is one of both Swift and Maack’s “favorite designers,” Swift said. “Reem does the most amazing bridal designs, and Britany and I were looking through Vogue, and she pointed to this one gown, and I was like, ‘I wonder if we could go to the showroom…'”
Just one of the perks of having a celeb as your bridesmaid? They can pull some serious strings. Case in point: Swift made a few calls to the showroom “and sure enough, it was the best day ever. It was so amazing.”
Even though Swift is no a stranger to weddings — remember when she famously crashed a fan’s bridal shower? — this is the pop star’s first stint as a MOH. And now that wedding-dress shopping is underway, we have a feeling the singer is already getting a head start on a few more maid-of-honor to-dos like planning the bridal shower and writing a memorable maid-of-honor speech!
