- Wedding: May 2016
I am hoping some creative brides out there might help me with this problem. My brother and I are pretty close and I have decided to have him as my “MOH” in my wedding. I was his “BM” in his wedding. His wife decided to refer to me and her Maid/Matron of Honor as attendants because she had an issue with a woman being called “Best Man”. Anyway this isnt about that, just giving an idea on how they handled this deliemma.
My brother lives on the other side of the country at the moment and likely wont be able to help with the much of the planning or throwing any of the events. I do want him to stand with me at my wedding and in particular sign the marriage license as a witness. We have always said we will stand as each others BM/MOH in each others weddings and thats what I want to do. My best girlfriend is a Bridesmaid or Best Man and she has more or less done all the Maid/Matron of Honor duties so far and I want to acknowledge that somehow. I just dont want her to be just another Bridesmaid or Best Man because she has done so much to help and is a truly amazing friend. SO here is my question, what titles should I give them? Can they both be MOH? Is it rude to call her a bridemaid, how can I make sure she is acknowleged properly? Is there any other ways to give my brother a title that isnt to cutesy like Man of Honor? What should the procession look like? Or how to annouce them at the reception? Is there any other snags this arrangement could cause that I havent considered yet?
