Well, I am my FSIL’s Maid/Matron of Honor and my husband is the Bridesmaid or Best Man so I am not sure, I guess you can worry about spending time with your SO later or a different day. She was my Maid/Matron of Honor and my brother (his fiancee) was the Bridesmaid or Best Man.

I was a Maid/Matron of Honor for my Maid/Matron of Honor about 2 years ago. I didn’t bring a date. But I tended to her. It was a stressful day. LONG LONG story. I earned the Maid/Matron of Honor role, besides being her bestest friend, and the only maid. I snuck her to buy everything for the wedding. LOL!

I DID meet a guy at the wedding. But it never turned into anything. LOL! But I tended to her. She was my main priority that day (besides trying not to trip)

I was the Maid/Matron of Honor in a wedding two years ago and at the time, I was devistated that my boyfriend couldn’t come.  The next day though, I realized it was a blessing.  I had no time to spend with him, and he wouldn’t have known anyone at the wedding.  As much as it would have been fun to have a date, I danced the slow songs with the ring bearer and still had a wonderful time!

I was Maid/Matron of Honor at my sisters wedding. Granted it was a smaller wedding but my Fiance (then boyfriend) was there. Honestly there wasn’t much "attending to the bride" needed, my sister was pretty much open to doing things for herself. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a wedding where the Maid/Matron of Honor was constantly attending to the bride that she didn’t get to enjoy the wedding herself.

I’ve only brought a date if he would know other people and wouldn’t mind being left alone if necessary.  That way I could be a really attentive Maid/Matron of Honor and not feel pressured to entertain my date if I was busy helping the bride.

I’m the Maid/Matron of Honor in a wedding next week and the only single girl in the wedding party. That being said the bride and I have 3 friends from High School that are coming that we are close to and I just chose one of them to be my ‘date’. We’ll see how that works out next week! =-)

I think if she wants to be bring a date, you should let her. Still, it wouldn’t hurt to let her know you’re a little worried he may feel out of place. Either she’ll agree or think things’ll be ok; either way, I think it’ll be ok 🙂
