    Hard one I would go absent minded or guru… As they are the ones you seem closer to now…

    I voted guru in the poll because if you expect help she prob would be the best… Then I reconsidered as my MOST HELPFUL bridal party member is one of my BMs (the one I have known for 12 yrs) and she doesn’t mind she isn’t Maid/Matron of Honor she has still taken on a lot in organising hen’s night etc 🙂 

    After all that babbling choose who YOU feel closest to and everything else will fall into place.

    I think the title of Maid/Matron of Honor would make this Bridesmaid or Best Man more motivated to help, and I would want the help of the wedding guru most. Plus, you seem to be closer to her right now than option 1 or 2, and absent minded probably won’t be much help (especially considering she mentioned that she was ok with you choosing someone else).

    What about not having a maid of honour and just going witth all bridesmaids.

    I am only having one attendant, and am calling her a Bridesmaid.  But only because traditionally in Australia the other is called a Matron of Honour, and I do not like the sound of the title.

    @Firie:  Hehe I am actually going with Head Bridesmaid or Best Man and BMs as I gave my her the choice of what to be called and as she was divorced we are unsure if she was maid or matron… And either way she didn’t like it… We also had chief as an option 🙂 but head it is – I do however refer to her as Maid/Matron of Honor on here cos it is easier 🙂

    My Darling Husband had two ‘best men’ as he didn’t want to distinguish between both of his best friends so maybe you could have them all as MOHs? I don’t see why there has to be the difference in titles.

    I agree with PP and don’t have a Maid/Matron of Honor. Typically someone will take a leadership role when everyone is equal, so I would just call them all your BMs.

    I agree you dont HAVE to have a Maid/Matron of Honor. I, unfortunately, have 2 Maid/Matron of Honor (not on purpose though) but I wish I would have had just BMs and 1 Maid/Matron of Honor, my best friend.
