I’ll be honest and say that I don’t have many close girlfriends.  I’m an only child as well, so that ruled out having a sister as MOH. I ended up going with my closest female friend that I hang out with and speak with most often. She also happens to be the wife of my FIs best friend (also in the bridal party though not the bestman). We always hang out with them, so it only seemed natural that I would ask her. She’s been so excited to be chosen and has been a huge help to me already.

Liss13:  Your MOH should be the person you would call if you had to hide a dead body and you know she would come without hesitation, no questions asked.

If you don’t have someone you’re super close to it’s okay to not have a MOH!  It’s a very specialy thing to have someone in your life like that and it’s not an honour to be bestowed lightly.

I didn’t choose lol.

I chose both my (only) sister and my best friend.

ETA: To clarify, these are different people, I had 2 MOHs.

My GOH (Gentleman of Honor) is my best friend who I grew up with. Practically Biffles from birth, seeing that our dad’s were friends and our grandfathers were friends as well (goes back many generations). Couldn’t think of anyone else standing besides me on my big day!

My sister, no question. We’re super close and she’s pretty type-A awesome 🙂

Liss13:  I do have one sister but didn’t choose her for my MOH though she is a bridesmaids. I don’t feel anyone should be obligated to choose based on relation to someone. I chose my best female friend. She is the one person I knew would always be honest with me throughout the wedding planning and who I could call at any time for advice or an opinion.

She’s the only gal-pal (honestly, friend in general) that I have left in my life after I cleaned up my act and stopped partying so much. We’ve been friends since high school and despite a couple falling outs that we have had we always end up coming back into each other’s lives.

 I’m an only child so I picked my best friend as my MOH. My other girls are two other amazing close friends and my awesome FSIL

It was a no-brainer for me. I chose my best friend from childhood. We speak all day every single day. Our parents knew each other before we were born. My sister was just a bridesmaid since we aren’t as close.

I have a large group of friends from high school and am very close with my college roommates. I’m an only child and I don’t have close family members that I would consider.

I felt like I couldn’t choose between my friend groups so I chose my absolute best friend who is two years younger than me- so she wasn’t really my “go out drinking, have classes together” high school friend, and she has also been my next door neighbor since we were toddlers. She’s one of my first ever friends. She is in a friend group all her own and we are still very close.

I only have her as my MOH and my FI’s sister as my bridesmaid, I couldn’t choose between all of my other friends to be in the wedding party so they will all just be regular wedding guests. Makes it easier that way!

Liss13:  I picked my oldest sister. We are very close and I know she is going to be an amazing and supportive MOH, but it was a little hard to make the decision. I wanted to ask my best friend, but did not for a couple of reasons. She lives up north and travels to Boston four days a week for grad school, she rarely has free time to do anything and wasn’t sure when she would be able to get down to see me. Additionally, when talking about her just being a bridesmaid, she admitted she felt a little clueless. She had no idea what was “expected” of her, as she put it or the process of anything, etc. So, before I asked my sister, I discussed with my best friend my intentions to pick her, but she asked if she could be a bridesmaid instead. I debated further and asked my oldest sister. (I didn’t ask her to be Maid of Honor and sister to be Matron of Honor because I have a middle sister who I felt would be way too excluded.)
