Wedding is mid September. We weren’t having a wedding party to keep thing simple. No drama around parties, matching outfits, etc.
My best friend (walking down as my “sister” with my brother, and very close cousin (who’s walking down with her 2 year old flower girl) have been helping and throwing me a bridal/bach party also. I am so grateful for everything!
Now I feel they should get official titles, even though they said titles don’t matter. Technically I can have a Maid of honor and Matron of honor, jus no bridesmaids 🙂 and there still won’t be groomsmen or anything. Nor will they need to stand up there.
Guess my jist is – do I leave it alone or do I ask them if they’d do me the honor as my MOH? The title is only if someone asks “who’s your MOH??” or when they announce names before the grand entrance. and how would I ask them now? I feel stupid for not doing it in the first place..but thought it’d be weird to have MOH’s without anyone on the grooms side. Now it just makes sense to but how!

I think that’s very sweet, but perhaps a bit confusing, since you aren’t actually having them process or stand up with you. Maybe just pull them aside or write them a letter before the wedding and tell them how much you appreciate everything they’ve done, and that you consider them both your MOH?

I think you should probarly discuss this with your groom. See if he has an opinion on this which he probarly would.
I dont think you need to ask they probarly dont expect it.

My mom and dad were introduced in August, and were married 6 weeks later, in October.
My mom’s DB and SIL had introduced them, and SIL sad “We’ll stand up for you”.
My mom said “Fine”.
Married 39 years, until he died.
NO RULES APPLY.

jolie2 : I think as long as your fiance is okay with it, you should just ask them. I think it’s really sweet and even though titles may not matter to them, I think it’s thoughtful and will probably be well received.

- Wedding: September 2017 - Mississauga Convention Centre
I would just thank them in a speech at the rehearsal dinner, I don’t think they need titles this close to the wedding

Ok ladies, I need to decide in the next day or so because bridal party they are throwing me is next weekend! I feel they are so helpful and I want them to be my Maid/Matron of Honor (that I consider them so) so even though no Wedding Party they are still my cherished bridal party.
Fiance is ok with the designation. Nothing else has changed in responsibilities or even walking down the aisle.
Is it better to ask them to my Maid/Matron of Honor or leave it alone at this point….the whole point was to avoid a “wedding party” and fiance still dose not want a Best man or groomsmen on his side, or anyone to have to stand there.
