I’m stationed overseas and relying on my amazing family to help me plan my wedding. My mother sent out my bridesmaid asks last week (just sent them flowers and a card) but made a mistake. She asked them all to be bridesmaids and forgot to distinguish my maid and matron of honor!
So here’s the problem…how do I ask them now, after they’ve already recieved their bridesmaids ask? Remember that I can’t talk to them on in person. Should I send another card? An email? Give them a call? Should I tell them a mistake was made, or just act like this was the plan? I don’t want to take away from the specialness, but I don’t know how else to do it!

Send them an email right now, and tell them of the mistake that your mother did, And thank your lucky stars it wasn’t you who made the mistake! At least you can “blame” it on someone else! LOL

I don’t see why this is an issue? Now they all know they’re involved, and you can send another note (via your mom as needed) to let them know they’re not just a bridesmaid, but the maid/matron of honor.

No biggie. Shoot them an email or send the message via your mom letting them know that they are the Maid and Matron of Honor. Now, if your mom had given one of your BM a Maid or Matron card instead of a Bridesmaid or Best Man card then you would have some problems.

Thanks for your advice. I didn’t know if asking them to be MOHs was weird after a bridesmaid ask.

I totally guarantee you, after distinguishing those you want as you matron/made of honor, they will feel even more special! hugs

@sussie: Exactly what I was going to say! It’s like “You won this car!” *Shows a Honda Civic*, “Oops, my mistake, you won THIS CAR!” *corvette*

I thought this was gonna be “My mom asked the wrong girl” hahaha! Glad it wasn’t… I would just send them another card, no big deal. 🙂
