NYE2014:  I may be reading this wrong but are you saying you don’t feel like she deserves that title, that the title doesn’t reflect on your relationship. If so then stick to your guns and stay with just a MOH.

The fact that she’s married should have no influence on whether or not she’s your MOH. That title is for the girl you are either BFFs with, your sister, or a great friend that will help plan the wedding. She was not chosen as the MOH and unless you just met your MOH yesterday I don’t see why your friend gets to throw a tantrum. She can either agree to be a BM, or not. How many BM’s do you have?

If you want to have a matron of honor too, cool. But it doesn’t sound like that’s what you want. If you told her the reason she isn’t the MOH is because “the title doesn’t fit her” since she’s married, it would hake sense why she brought the matron of honor question up.

I’m confused – did you not ask her to be the MOH because you didn’t want to say Matron of Honor, or because you are truly closer with your current MOH?

Your post is kind of confusing… did you not ask her to be MOH in the first place, because she’s married?

NYE2014:  if the only reason you didn’t pick her as MOH is because she’s married, that’s a little silly to be honest.  My sister is my MOH in title, she is the closest to me for sure but she has no desire to help plan or anything like that, one of my BMs is a planner and is also getting married so she’s my sounding board for a lot of decisions.

NYE2014:  in that case it makes perfect sense, the way your first post was worded it looked like she would have been MOH if she wasn’t married.  I would not have a Matron of Honour just for the sake of it.

At first I was confused, but now I understand what you’re saying.  Since she is your oldest friend and you were her MOH, so she probably feels bad that you didn’t automatically include her as MOH. It sounds like she is closer to you than you are to her.

I wouldn’t want a matron of honor just for title’s sake either.  It starts to be too much.  Did you reply to her email?  If not, I guess you can say that you hadn’t considered a matron of honor and that your bridal party is good as it stands.  Good luck.

Your choice is your choice. I dont think it is for anyone to question?! I chose my MOH and well that position for her was clear, but again, its not for anyone to question. Unfortunately, i think answering her, since she was the type of person to aks, may cause a fight. 

 

I guess you can simple answerher and just say something like, you just felt right.

 

Good lucK!

NYE2014:  do it how you wish! if you don’t think your friend is worthy of the title, that’s your decision – although you may need to explain that based on your post. i have a matron and a maid because it felt right to me…and the maid is actually doing most of the work because my matron is 7 months pregnant!
