I am having a real tough time deciding on an Maid/Matron of Honor between 2 sisters and 2 close friends.
Sister #1- older sister by 1 year. We were very close when we were little, drifted a part in teenage years, now we are closer (not as close as my friends). I was her Maid/Matron of Honor last year. It was good because my mom was very involved so made organizing events easy. I think she is good at planning parties! I think she would want to reciprocate for me since I I did a great job for her bachelorette/shower. She lives over an hour away now and also plans on getting pregnant soon.
Sister #2- little sister by 4 years. Same thing, we were closer when we were young, not close in teenage years, now closer (I would say still closer with older sister though). she likes planning things. she is creative. she is mean though sometimes. she also doesn’t have a steady job, I don’t expect her to spend a lot of money but I would hate for her to feel like she had to.
Friend #1– Best friends for 17 years. We have common interests. We like to do fun things! I guess what I mean was growing up we both liked to date boys, go out drinking, have tons of fun (where our other friend is a little more conservative) We did absolutely everything together, except when she had a boyfriend I felt like we never really hung out or talked much. Now that I have been with Fiance though I am just as guilty. I am her Maid/Matron of Honor next year. She is good at planning parties, I know she will put in a lot of effort.
Friend #2- Best friend for 17 years. While Boyfriend or Best Friend1 and I were out having fun, Boyfriend or Best Friend2 and I are friends on a different level. She lived around the corner from me, so when something was wrong she was my go-to-girl. I share with her my most embarrassing secrets. She is the type of friend you could sit on the phone with for 2 hours and not even talk but just like knowing someone is on the other line. Our friendship has always been steady no peeks and valleys, like other friend. We have a bit of distance between us so don’t hang out very often. She is very frugal, conservative and some times just random (at our xmas exchange she gave someone a GIANT HEAD statue, and her idea of a dream wedding is a backyard ceremony, everyone walk in a parade to the park and have a pot luck dinner, no presents….which is nice thought but a far cry from my big italian, 5 course meal wedding). She has always told me one day I would be her Maid/Matron of Honor.
I wish I had 2 sisters and 1 friend, or 1 sister and 2 friends cause then it would make things easier to swing either way. I know I can go all new-age but I really only want to have one Maid/Matron of Honor, I don’t really want 2.
