I have 1 single female somewhat friend. A married friend. My brothers two wife’s. And my fiancés married sister
He has his twin. His friend. My brothers. And maybe one of my guys friends.
I’m concerned about my almost entire bridal party being married…. And the maid of honor isn’t always dependable.
What’s the best way to handle this. I’m open to all ideas I have no other cousins or relatives and practically zero female friends.

Your bridal party should be comprised of those who are closest and most supportive of you and your relationship. It does not matter if they are married.
If you are concerned about dependability, it’s best to first reconsider what you are expecting of people, and then talk to them directly if issues arise.

Truthfully I’m closest to my fiance and not really anyone else. That’s the hard part. I’m including any and all girls because it seems to be the right thing to do

jadynerose: Don’t base your decision on whether they’re married or not, it really doesn’t matter! Whether you have a maid of honour, matron of honour, bridesmaids, several of each, none of any.. it is totally up to you! Don’t feel pressured to meet a certain expectation or to give every woman you know an official role. I’m having four bridesmaids and no maid/matron of honour (i’m so close to all of them I just couldn’t pick!)
Don’t include anyone you wouldn’t absolutely love sharing it all with, you won’t enjoy the experience as much that way! No one should be ‘expecting’ a role (and the less people you have, the easier it is logistically!)
