Matron of honor is my best friend from grade school. Maid of honor was a close friend in high school and then we lost touch on and off for a few years but reconnected around the time I started dating Fiance and became really close. 2 BMs, friends who I met at work, although at different jobs. One became a neighbor after I left that job. The other was new to town when I met her, joined my book club and ended up in the same social circle as me, so we spent a lot of time together and have a lot of the same friends.

My Maid/Matron of Honor is my aunt-in-law. She’s only 8 years older than me and super awesome. I’ve known her for 16 years.

Bridesmaid or Best Man 1 is my FI’s sister and an absolutely sweetheart. I’ve known her 5 years.

Bridesmaid or Best Man 2 is married to the Best Man, we’re pretty good friends but we don’t see each other often enough! I’ve known her for probably 4 years or so.

I had my sister as Maid/Matron of Honor, and my best friend from undergrad as Maid/Matron of Honor. I had two of my good friends from undergrad as BMs. His SIL, and his two brother’s wife & Fiance (basically SILs) were my BMs as well! 🙂

My Maid/Matron of Honor is a very close friend of mine who I’ve known about 7 years. My three bridesmaids are my two sisters and my fsil. One of my sisters is really stepping up to the plate recently…and I kind of wish I had picked her as Maid/Matron of Honor now!

Since I don’t have any sisters, my bridesmaids are my best friends…

Maid/Matron of Honor: Friends for 15 years. She was the first person to befriend me when I moved here in the 6th grade. We’ve been “besties” ever since.

Bridesmaid or Best Man EL: Friends since 9th grade, so 10ish years. 

Bridesmaid or Best Man EM: Same as Bridesmaid or Best Man EL.
