MissesAwesome:  So basically anyone that attends your wedding can sign the license.  It doesn’t have to be a person that you trust and feel close to.  This is just something that people are overthinking and something that can easily be solved in about 2 seconds the day of your wedding. Not everything has to have a fully planned out or thoughtout back-up plan.  After the ceremony a simple “hey Aunt Susie, since Katie unfortunately couldn’t make it, could you sign our license?” is all you need.

freckles071611:  Yes, I realize this.  But most people want their official witnesses to be people they are close to.  And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.  It’s a special moment and it deserves a special person.  But if someone wants to ask a random wedding guest to step in in case of an emergency, then that’s okay, too.

MissesAwesome:  That is fine if you want it to be someone you are close to.  But again, you can ask that someone the day of your wedding.  It does not have to be pre-planned.  No need to add even more stress to the planning process by then having to make back-up plans for everything.

freckles071611:  To clarify, just for myself, when I said have a plan b, I definitely didn’t mean another Maid/Matron of Honor. I meant just….think ahead about photos/who is going to walk down the aisle with who/if Maid/Matron of Honor is set ot give a speech ar eyou ok with not having someone from the brial party speak, etc. Not because you can’t make those plans on the day of, but more because it just makes your life easier to already have decided since there’s a ton going on the day of, and you want to limit the amount of stress or confusion as much as you can.

I don’t think OP needs another secondary Maid/Matron of Honor. But I also don’t really think Maid/Matron of Honor is a job with duties, but a position of honour (you know, bc it’s in the title), so I wouldn’t be worried about who would do her “job”.

freckles071611:  I suppose that’s where we differ.  Like lots of other people, I don’t see anything wrong with planning ahead, even if only by a day.  For many people, having back-up plans = less stress, not more of it.  But if you don’t feel that way, that is totally cool, too.  That’s all I have to say and I don’t have any more to add.
