    @myluverbuny:  I would do the surprise engagement party for her. As for what is the matron of honor role, its really no different from the maid of honor role, just the marital status (matron=married, maid=not married). Sounds like she just needs a loving and supporting friend as well to listen to her rants and sounds like you’re the perfect person for the job.

    I think you should go for it.  I think it would definitely make her feel better and maybe even get more excited about the getting married part (minus the drama) sometimes being around your friends to celebrate something like your engagement could be a good moral boost 🙂

    I say go for it, as matron of honor (the only difference between the terminology is that you are married and maids are not married) you get the same responsibilities as a maid of honor. Throwing a party for your friend is well within your scope as matron of honor 🙂

    Go for it!! I think you’ve got a great outlook, make it all “HEY you’re getting married!!” so the focus is on that super awesome fact. 🙂

    I think too many brides get caught up in the details, the unfortunate problems, the snags and issues that pop up… and forget that the whole point is that, at the end of the day, that man she loves so much will be her HUSBAND!

     

    I think the party will be a really sweet gesture to get her out of her funk (and all brides go through that down feeling about something, I think!) and keep her thinking positively!

    Sounds like a party is just what she needs to lift her spirits and remember how much her friends and family love her. I say go for it!

    Sounds like an awesome plan to me! The party sounds like exactly what the doctor ordered to make her feel loved. 🙂

    Do it! Maybe the maid of honor thinks YOU are planning all these things for her so she didn’t bother. You just never know but either way i’d plan it for her. She may not think she wants it but I guarentee you she will feel so loved and so happy you did that for her.
