@jstJune2014lovesM:  your Maid/Matron of Honor only needs to show up for pictures, and sign the certificate. you can still have her in it, but with so much tiem to go you can replace her if that is the route you choose

This is a difficult situation.

First of all, I’m not exactly sure how it was left based on your post and if you are still friends then you could still invite her to the bachelorette/other activities. I would say that if it didn’t end well it may be awkward to have her at events traditionally included in bridal party duties.

Second, I don’t know how traditional your family is, but you could consider including a brother or someone who is very close to you in the ‘MOH’ role. I don’t know if this would work for you but just an idea. Some women have a really close male friend but not so many female friends who they would want in that role. Or they have a brother but no sisters.

Lastly, I’m sure you could ask your friends to help you with typical MOH/bridesmaid duties. I’m sure a few of them have probably already asked if they can do anything and if they haven’t they shouldn’t mind being approached. I just wouldn’t get carried away with asking for big things or ‘overuse’ friends who don’t have the title of bridesmaid.

@jstJune2014lovesM:  It depends what you mean by “typical Maid/Matron of Honor responsibilties”. If you mean wedding planning in general, most people think this is the responsibility of the bride and groom, not the Maid/Matron of Honor. If you mean just the bachelorette party and bridal shower, it is easy for bridesmaids to share this.

Yes it is fine to invite your friend (and any other non bridesmaids) to these events.
