We weren’t having a bridal party/groomsmen because fiance says he doesnt like to ask people to do things and not sure who to pick. My two closes best friend (single) and married cousin have been helping and throwing me a bach/bridal party. The matron’s daughter is the flower girl.
Is it weird if I have a maid of honor AND a matron of honor, without any men to walk with?
Reason I’m thining of an offical upgrade in acknoledgment is also because the pastor told us there’s a separation when parents walk down, there’s a gap, then the “bridal party” including the flower girl. I was going to have them walk in and sit down, no need to matchy matchy either.

I’m in the UK and the groomsmen/ushers don’t walk into the ceremony they are already stood at the top. So my bridesmaids walked into the ceremony before me (the UK way is typically after the bride) and together. You’re fine.

Another follow on question…is it weird/rude to now ask if they would do me the honor of being my M of honors? We still won’t have “bridesmaids” or groomsmen…they still dont need to match or even stand up there. they have been very supportive & helpful and are walking down the aisle (escort 2 yr od flower girl). Now I feel bad for not doing this to begin with.
Should I leave the titles out (walk in introduction may be awkward.” now introducing the flower girls’ mom??”) Or should I be honest and tell them we initially didn’t want a “wedding party” but who says i can’t have a “bridal party” without groomsmen?
sorry if I sound like a mess but the stress is catching up to me 😉
