Okay girls, I know I’m free to chose whatever I want but I have a question:
- My Fiance is having 1 Best Man (brother) and 3 Groomsmen.
- I am having a Man of Honor (also walking me down the aisle), standing next to me at church.
- I am also having 4 female BM’s.
I am unsure if I should have a Maid of Honor, as well. I am just thinking about the announcements and such. Usually a Best Man is paired with a Maid of Honor. I know it doesn’t really matter, though.
I am also trying to think who my Man of Honor will walk out of the church with, and enter the reception announcements with. My Grandmother is passed. My Mom wants to walk with her brother. Ah, so many choices. I can pick a Maid of Honor, but I am already going to have a Man of Honor – not sure how complicated this is getting.
Who here has a Man of Honor, do you have a Maid/Matron of Honor, too?

@Mrs.Firefly1: I don’t have a Man of Honor but couldn’t he walk out of church/ into reception with one of your BM’s and the best man? I’ve seen 2 guys escort one of the BMs or vice versa.

Call me old fashioned, but to me it dilutes the “honor” when you have more than one. It used to be that you had one person of honor. If they were single they were a maid of honor. If they were married they were a matron of honor.
When I see more than one “honor” position, it makes me think I’m dealing with an indecisive bride, or a bride who is just afraid to offend anyone by making a decision.

@Stammie16: Thanks! Good idea!
@julies1949: Yep, I agree. That’s why I only really want a Man of Honor, but it feels off balance? What would you suggest for him, how would he exit the church and enter the reception?

@Mrs.Firefly1: I agree with Stammie… My daughter and I were in a wedding where the BM’s and GM’S were even but she was the lone JR Bridesmaid so one of the GM;s walked both of us out. Also in that wedding we have 1 flower girl, a ring bearer and a bible boy and all 2 walked together.

I’ve seen two guys walk in together. I mean, that’s how ushers are introduced into the reception, right? Obviously they don’t need to link arms, escort each other or anything. 🙂
