- Wedding: July 2012
So I actually have 2 questions regarding the same subject. My first question is silly, but I honestly don’t know what the ‘proper’ thing is, or if it matters. When my Fiance and I first discussed our wedding, we wanted something that was less wedding and more picnic, since this is my 2nd wedding and his 1st but he’s not interested in the ‘traditional’ wedding. As time as progressed, there are things that he wants that would make it more wedding-like, and since they’re relatively minor and it’s his first (and hopefully ONLY) wedding I want it to be what he wants too. Recently he decided that he wanted his best friend to be his best man, even though initially we weren’t going to have any attendants. I asked if he wanted any of his other friends involved, and he doesn’t think so but he was mulling it over (last I checked it was just the 1 best man), so I figured I should add someone, which would be my sister. So my question is this: Would she me a Maid of Honor since there’s a Best Man, or would she be considered a Bridesmaid?
My second thought ties into this…my sister was my Maid/Matron of Honor at my first wedding. Is it weird to have her in the same role twice? I guess that’s why I’m wondering if she should be considered Maid/Matron of Honor or BM? Her duties would be simple, I am not asking for a shower or other party…and we would discuss her dress options together (whatever she feels comfortable in and whatever she can afford, as long as I can help decide a color that fits the theme), so basically all it is at that point is wording. What do you ladies think?
