A few weeks ago I posted on here with a dilemma about a Matron of Honor, two Maids of Honor, and one regular Bridesmaid. I don’t want to make them all plain bridesmaids. Two MOHs are longtime BEST friends of mine, and the 3rd is my cousin who is just awesome. The regular bridesmaid is my future sister-in-law. What can I call her that sounds better than plain bridesmaid?? Help!

I have one Maid of Honor, two Matrons of Honor, and two Bridesmaids of Honor. Yeah, it’s not totally new or different, but it works.

i don’t think i have a good answer, but since our flower girl is actually a 6th grader, we’re going to call her the ‘flower maiden’. unfortunately she can’t actually make the wedding (destination, plus her dad in the Navy is suddenly getting stationed somewhere new the week after the wedding), but I’m still listing her in the program and giving her a gift.

I had almost the exact same group as you. My sister, two best friends from elementary school and my sister-in-law.
I think it’ll hurt her feelings that she’s the only one who’s only a bridesmaid. I would either make them all co-maid/matrons of honour or downgrade two more to bridesmaids.

I a calling each of my girls “Lady of Honor”. Neither of them are maids or matrons, so that was the best choice.

In my program I put “Friends of Honor” and then my sisters were mys “Sisters of Honor” Not very creative but I didn’t want to call them matrons or bridesmaids or anythign like that.

@noritake22: That’s so funny! My best friend (and MOH) and I always call each other “Lady” (as in “Hey, Lady”), so one day I refered to her as my “Lady of Honor” and she REALLY wants me to refer to her as that now.
@MissTeacher7: I really think that whatever you decide will be fine. The “Honor” spots are really just words, at the end of the day, because every person you have up with you was given a spot of honor just by getting chosen to be in your bridal party.
I’m personally only having 1 Maid/Matron of Honor (my best friend and the one who is going to be the most help with planning/decorating) and then my younger sister, best friend from high school, and my future sister-in-law are bridesmaids. I worried that my sister and old friend would be offended that they weren’t offered the “Honor” spot, but when I talked to them about it they didn’t care at all.
My younger sister was especially understanding- she and I talked about all the things that a Maid/Matron of Honor has to do (party planning, helping with planning, being a sounding board, etc) and she was happy not to have to do any of that!
I would just talk to future SIL and see what she thinks. She might not care, and if she does, ask her what she would like to be called. Maybe she’ll have some creative idea that we aren’t thinking of.
