- Wedding: July 2011
I have thought long and hard about the decision to have or have not a Maid of Honor. I am a second time bride, a widow, a mother of two, I have always had “guy friends” and never had a deep connection to any particular female friend. I have a step daughter from my previous marriage that I am close to and a sister living a 2 days drive away whom I adore….a few friends that I like alot but I never really see. How can I select one person to be my Honored Maid….my daughter wants to be in the wedding which is a given but she’s only 9…it’s not like she’s going to give me that quick swig of whiskey to calm my nerves or know how to sew that missing sequin back on…or drive to the store for that one important thing that I forgot….so I have decided to buy her an exquisite dress and make her Top Dawg of the flower girls…..am I wrong to exclude the invitation of a Maid of Honor? Will they all get offended that I don’t think of any of them as being my bestest girlfriend?
