Personally, I’m not a fan of the “Guest of Honor” title at all, because all of your guests should be honored guests, not just a select few.  It’s fine if you don’t want a bridal party, but then tiering your guests as “honored” or “other” (which is basically what you’re doing with that title) is very off-putting to me.

That being said, if you do this…You should absolutely ask them ahead of time.  It’s rude to single some people out for an honorific title while ignoring other people who are standing right next to you.  I would be hurt if I were one of the girls not asked to be a ‘guest of honor’ and feel like my friendship didn’t matter as much to you.

I agree. It’s like saying these are our favourite guests, the rest of you are less important.
