    I mean I guess it’s different for different people, but I definitely think my best girlfriends are my soul mates. To me, a BFF is similar to a spouse – a long relationship through the good and the bad that you can always turn to (obviously there are some major differences between the two). So I could see describing a best friend as a soul mate – or, as I frequently say, a bosom buddy (mostly because I love Anne of Green Gables).

    This is weird.  But my best friend and I have jokingly called each other soulmates for years.  I don’t think a soulmate needs to be a sexual partner – it;s the souls recognition of a kindred spirit.  But I think it’s weird to say that at a wedding, in the speech.  Kind of like the Maid/Matron of Honor was trying to make it about her?  Strange…

    My best friend is definitely my soul mate. Darling Husband is too, but she came along first :).

    I think it would be awkward as all hell.

    I think it’s adorable and really sweet, and that the bride is lucky to have such a friend in her life.

    Totally fine to me. My best girlfriend and I have our own special connection.

    In the situation you described, though, if the Maid/Matron of Honor was putting a lot of emphasis on the word “soulmate,” it could come off as her being jealous or afraid of losing her friend.

    I don’t think it’s weird. I think it’s a lovely sentiment. I certainly think of my closest friends as my “soulmates”.
