- Wedding: August 2010
I’m not far into the planning yet but one thing that has been really weighing on me is the wedding party. Fiance is from here (New Orleans) so all of his friends and potential groomsmen are here with the exception of my brother who lives in Dallas with my family. I have several good friends here but the friends I’ve known the longest are in Texas.
I was Maid/Matron of Honor in my best friend’s wedding and would like her to be my Maid/Matron of Honor (she’s my BEST friend) but I’m concerned because she is several hours away. I want her to be included in things but she and her husband run their own business and are very busy so I know it will probably be a problem, especially when it comes to planning showers, bachelorette, etc.
So as I was thinking about it, I though about possibly having a local Maid/Matron of Honor as well (because the other person I would consider for Maid/Matron of Honor lives here). Has anyone else done this? What was it like? Did the out of town Maid/Matron of Honor resent the local Maid/Matron of Honor, etc? I’m so confused and not sure what to do.
P.S. When Fiance was talking about his attendants, he asked if they could be his “best men” because he didn’t think he could put one above the others. I told him that was fine he just needed to make sure duties were delegated. Maybe I could have my “best girls” and do the same so that no one feels slighted? UGH – so confused!!
