Wow! I can’t believe people dismissed you because you were the “girlfiend”. I mean, every fiance is first a girlfriend lol I can’t see how you can dismiss a girlfriend without even knowing how long the couple has been together, especially if the girl is MOH!! That means a lot! Some people are strange!

Anyway, you seemed to have handled it superbly, and you and your SO certainely made his sister’s wedding memorable for her 🙂 Sounds like you put in a lot of work, so things could go smoothly for her. That impresses me more than a girl who would have worn an expensive ring and would have done nothing more than revels in her glory to be MOH, as those rude people seem to think a MOH should have done lol.

@MsW-to-MrsM:  I’d say bad joke. It IS funny that you can go from: bride’s brother’s girlfriend to a one word: sister-in-law. 

I would also suggest that those who dismissed you as “girlfriend” didn’t realise you were MOH (even after the ceremony some clearly clueless people can’t figure those things out). 

Unfortunately ‘girlfriend’ just doesn’t hold a lot of water these days, people say girlfriend of the girl they’ve been seeing for two weeks. For a lot of people it’s a word that is dismissible. When you ARE a girlfriend it hurts and seems ridiculous but I think a lot of us will be guilty of this in 15+ years.

Hopefully next time you see them you’ll be able to say fiancé!

It definitely sounds like congrats are going to be in order very, very soon! He was likely just waiting for his sister’s festivities to wrap up and perhaps wait until vacation. 

Weddings can be such a stressful time for waiting bees, but it sounds like you handled it gracefully!

Yes, I think you can be pretty optimistic!

I also think your Fh is. keeper, based on all of the hard work he did for his sister.  It gives you some insight into how he treats the women in his life.

Sounds awesome!

I think it’s ridiculous that at a wedding anyone would dismiss you. I think that when they ask “oh, how do you know the bride and groom?” and you say “I’m the Maid Of Honor” usually you don’t need any other explanation! You’re important enough to the bride to be MOH and that’s all that matters!
