- Wedding: May 2014
…and I don’t think it matters.
My wedding party got out of control. My closest friend is a guy and is in the wedding party on the groom’s side.
His wife, and his daughter are bridesmaids. I love them both and consider them great friends (his daughter is a kid, but she’s a sweetheart).
My god daughter is also a bridesmaid.
Then I picked a friend from the area. THen when talking about it it became obvious another friend felt like she should be a bridesmaid. I love her, adn she is super helpful so she’s a bridesmaid.
My coworker, I asked to be a bridesmaid. At this point she’s my best friend, probably, by virtue of the fact we work together, take work related vacation together, and share a LOT.
Then my god daughter’s older sister (who lives in NYC) was there talking about the wedding and it seemed unnatural to not have her in the wedding party, especially since they would be both showing up to see each other the night before my wedding so how could I not have her in the rehearsal dinner?
So here I am, 7 bridesmaids and no maid of honor.
I realize this is weird only when people say “get me your MOH’s name so we can plan your bachelorette!” and such… 🙂
