@msmoya522:  DO it!!!! My friend had his little brother (12, I think) as his Best man. it was so memorable and his brother was absolutely beaming up there next to him.

Your friend will understand. If she doesn’t…I would question whether or not she’s your friend…

I think thats cute.  I’d do that – but whats the legalities in the US?  In the UK the witness needs to be a certain age to sign the marriage register.

If it’s something you can do then I would – she shouldn’t have assumed!

@rangersbride:  She couldn’t sign the marriage license, another person in the BP (or whoever the bride wants) that’s over 18 needs to sign it. It would be more of a symbolic MOH, not a legal.

I think you should definitely do it!!! I don’t think its possible for her to not understand – its your daughter, not some other random friend out of no where

I would do it. Like pmerr said, though, its a symbolic thing. Someone else will need to sign the marriage license. I was just shy of 18 years old when my friend got married, so I couldn’t sign the marriage certificate for her.

@pmerr:  thanks for clarifying – curiosity!  I say have your daughter be symbolic MOH and then pick the maid who means the most to be your witness. Don’t feel pressured.
