@Valdrine: Okay you have so much time to decide on this since your wedding is in 2013 but I will give you my honest thoughts. First, be careful deciding too quick the worst thing I did was decide to ask everyone way too early and there has been many issues already but my case is a little different since I have 6 girls!. Second I think that it is a very good idea to add your friend, if neither are married have both be maids of honor and if one is then do one maid of honor and one matron of honor. I have both as my little sister is 19 maid of honor and my best friend married is my matron of honor. Then just split the duties with them too if you like. She will be even more excited for you, she sounds like an awesome friend and she deserves to be a part of it and so does the other groomsman. To answer your dress and tux question…. I would ask them both which they prefer for you to do pay for their attire or a gift instead? Most people just like honesty and prefer the choice! For the groomsmen and running the sound…. I think your fiance should also be honest and ask him how he feel about the situation, tell him you would love for him to be standing next to him but also understand he is running the sound, does he feel he can do both or does he want to just do one or the other. See what he says and then go from there. Anyway, sorry to say so much.

I don’t have a Maid/Matron of Honor. I have my sister, who lives 2 hours away. My Boyfriend or Best Friend from when I was like 3. Another good friend, and my Boyfriend or Best Friend now. I couldn’t pick, they will each be written down for what they are. Best friend, best childhood friend, best teenaged friend, Sister.
