I think if either of these two are not special enough to be a regular bridesmaid, they shouldnt be a MOH.  how could they be special enough that if you didnt pick them to be a BM, that they wouldnt be in the wedding at all?

I suspect that co-worker woudl feel weird being asked if you never see each other outside of work.  Ask your aunt if you are close with her.

Who are these other 3 BM’s that are not MOH quality? If they aren’t all that close to you, why have them at all?

You don’t HAVE to have an MOH, just someone that is going to witness you and sign the cert. You could ask one of the BM’s to do that without giving them the MOH title.

Why do you need a maid of honour at all?  It’s a position of honour and if no one you know is suitable to fill it, I don’t think it’s necessary to just find someone to fill the role if there wouldn’t be all that meaning behind it.  Just skip it and have someone else witness the certificate, maybe your mom?

Tradition doesn’t mean anything honey.  It sounds like your Aunt would be perfect.  ๐Ÿ™‚  Regardless of her age, it doesn’t matter (IMO).  She seems to know, be, and is all the things anyone would want in their MOH. 

Hey, I know some brides who made their sister the MOH (simply because they were their sister) and it didn’t turn out right.  Know why?  Because their sister may be family – but the relationship wasn’t meant for that particular role.  ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

I think your aunt would be honored.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t have a MOH but for very different reasons. I have a twin sister and an older sister. Both of which are bridesmaids but I did not want to choose one over the other because I’m very close to both. Therefore I eliminated the MOH role and have just bridesmiads. My fiance also doesn’t have a best man due to a similar issue. So it works out perfectly. ๐Ÿ™‚

I honestly think your Aunt sounds like a perfect choice! Who cares if she’s older! I’m 29 and one of my close friends (who will be one of my BM’s) is 45. There was no way I wasnt going to ask her to be in my wedding just cause she’s older and honestly I didnt even think about her age! I also have known a couple friends who had their mom as their MOH. No, it’s not the norm but it’s your wedding and you should do what you want. The age shouldnt matter if she’s dear to you. Plus it sounds like she loves and cares a lot about you! And she’s hosting your bridal shower! Very sweet! : ) I also agree w/the posts above. You don’t have to have a MOH if you’re having a hard time deciding. It’s your wedding and totally up to you! Congrats on your wedding and I hope it turns out to be a beautiful day for you and your fiance! : )

If you really want a MOH,then I think you should go with your aunt. Who cares about the age difference?
