I have a lot of friends but as sad as it may sound not a lot of really close friends. Ok well I do have one really good friend and I have a younger sister that I’m really close to. My sister isn’t always the best at organization. So how do I pick between my best friend and my sister for a maid of honor?

I wish I knew! I have sort of a similar situation but literally no top choices for Maid/Matron of Honor. I don’t have sisters, my best childhood friend has had a really terribly few years and won’t be able to be involved (and we’ve also grown apart, but that’s a long story) and I have many close friends but no BEST friend.
I’m not even totally sure who to ask in the bridal party at all!

@sarahroby: In my opinion a Bridesmaid or Best Man should be the people that you cannot see your self standing up without on your wedding and should have nothing to do with what sort of an organiser they are or how much money they can splash on your wedding.
For Maid/Matron of Honor I would choose the person that you are closests with. The person that would be the first one to call if something happened in your life, good or bad, and who would be there for you in an emotional way.
You also do not have to have a Maid/Matron of Honor. You can just have BM’s.

Honestly, I’d pick your sister, simply because she is your sister. It will mean a lot to your sister and to your family. That is what I did, and my sister is a very disorganized teenager, but we are super close. I made my close childhood friend my bridesmaid, and because she is such a good friend, she is just taking on the roles of a Maid/Matron of Honor anyways, which really shows how great of a friend she is. You could also just have bridesmaids and no maid of honor. I wouldn’t choose your friend over your sister, especially if you only have one sister. It could cause a lot of hard feelings

Pick the people who support you, are there for you, and will come through!
