    @lunalyra:  I just have one too! Just call her your maid of honor instead of a Bridesmaid or Best Man and be done with it!

    Yes, totally normal and generally you would refer to her as your “maid of honor” (even though she’s the only maid).

    I’m not planning to have any, unless my Fiance really wants his best friend to be best man. Then I’ll have one, and she’ll be my “maid of honor.”

    I only had one. Like you I couldnt choose between my friends and I couldn’t have them all. So in the end I just chose my best and oldest friend in the whole wide world:

    PS. I sat my other close girlfriends right up close to the top table for the reception which I hoped would make them feel extra special and also I made sure I got photos taken with each of them.

    Here’s me and my Maid/Matron of Honor:

    If one is what you want, then one is what you should have!  ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have 4.  My sister (who has demanded to be called MISTRESS of Honor…she is married, and is not a fan of the whole ‘matron’ thing.  LOL), and the only women outside of family that I am close to.

    Totally fine to have one! I think that’s the best solution in your situation.

    @lunalyra:  Have as many or as few as you want. I don’t think this is really something people will look down their nose at.
