I asked my sister to be my Maid/Matron of Honor and she turned it down saying she isn’t the right person for that role. Today, I asked my closest friend since grade school and she told me she has to think about it work being so busy and her 3 year old daughter…..

I’m so sorry!
Maybe your friend thinking about it is a good idea though. I had one of my girls think about it and we talked it over and we had a GOOD understanding before she accepted the role. She’s been one of my best bridesmaids so far!
So, I hope that works out for you similarly. Sit down and talk with her.
On the subject of your sister, my Maid/Matron of Honor is my cousin, but MUCH more like a sister. In hindsight I shouldn’t have asked her to be my MOH! She is overly competitive and wants everything to be about her, even though she already had her Cinderella wedding! So, maybe that was a blessing in disguise!

Sorry it sucks. I think your friend has a better excuse then your sister. Have you talked about what you expect, has she been a moh before? Either way it’s better having people who want to step into that role rather then someone whose heart isn’t it.

Aww, I’m so sorry! Did your sister give you any reason about why she didn’t want to be your Maid/Matron of Honor, other than “not being right” for it?
It is a good idea to all be on the same page, though, so I really respect your other friend for admitting she needs to think about it to make sure she can juggle all her responsibilities with it. Don’t take it as a negative; it shows she really values how important your day is and wants to be fully committed if she is to be such an important person!
