- Wedding: June 2012
Here is my dilemma. I dont know who to pick for my maid of honor. :/
Here are my picks for bridesmaids…
1)Randi–been my best friend since we were in 10th grade (7 years ago) and were close up until I started nursing school (August of last year). Nursing school commitments and her dating a dickhead that’s SUPER controlling have pulled us away, and we have drifted immensely. So much so, we used to text every day and hang out at least once a week, and we now barely speak. seriously…the only time I text her is when she texts me and says something like, “are you alive?!” .
2)Shawna–my cousin, never been terribly close, although we lived next door all of our lives. She can be sort of mean, and I do believe she is jealous of me getting married and having a “nice” wedding (she got married to a guy she knew for less than 2 months at the courthouse). Her sweet daughter whom I love, Lakelyn, will be 3 at the time of the wedding and I am planning on using her as my flowergirl.
3)Savannah–Shawna’s older sister, my cousin, same scenario. Never been terribly close although she lived next door until she moved out and got married (also at the courthouse, her and her husband are split now)
4)Hanna–my fiance Matt’s sister. She is in the 9th grade now, and will be in the 10th grade once we get married. she is PUMPED about the wedding!! She sends me pics of Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses she likes all the time (sadly, I’ve never liked any of them :/ ) Every time I go to Matt’s house, she is looking at wedding things, she is very excited about it. She even has recently started to go tanning because she “wants to look good in her dress” Lol. Our wedding isn’t even until June 2012! 😛
Savannah and Shawna aren’t even in the contest for Maid/Matron of Honor, I don’t think. It’s between Randi and Hanna. Randi has been my best friend for forever, although we’ve grown apart recently. Randi has told me numerous times she wants me to be her Maid/Matron of Honor (we got engaged at the same time as well!) even though Randi has a sister, she says she’s never been as close to her sister as she has to me. I would hate to have Randi pick me as her Maid/Matron of Honor over her sister, and then I dont pick her for my Maid/Matron of Honor. Randi and I have NIGHT AND DAY difference in what we like/dislike as well, so I think we wouldn’t really agree on decisions for the wedding, and that’s part of the MOH’s job to help me pick out things!! OKay….Hanna is a sweet girl, she would LOVE if I picked her for my Maid/Matron of Honor. I feel like the Maid/Matron of Honor is for someone you’ve been close to for a while, but I just dont know how Randi would pan out for a Maid/Matron of Honor. Hanna would be a good choice, but I just havent known her very long (I’ve known Matt my whole life, just havent been around her until Matt and I started dating, last August). also, with her being 15 and I am 21, I feel like she’s not “mature” enough to be a Maid/Matron of Honor. :/ I am so torn….thoughts please?!??
