You should have whoever is closest to you be your Maid/Matron of Honor. Bridal parties are not tit for tat.

I was Maid/Matron of Honor last year for my friend. She is just a bm for mine. I just flat out asked her to be bm and told her my childhood friend was Maid/Matron of Honor. Real, true friends should not have an issue.

I would put everything on hold for the time being. Let her continue to enjoy her moment in the limelight. You may find that this is not such a big deal to her as you anticipate. After having her own wedding, the financial obigation and time commitment  of being Maid/Matron of Honor may not hold as much appeal to her.

When it comes time, ask her to be  a Bridesmaid or Best Man. I wouldn’t offer any explanation of why she is not your Maid/Matron of Honor.

@rebeccalena:  Hmmm… Maybe you could ‘get her back’ by being a bridezilla yourself!!! 😉

But seriously, it shouldn’t be too big a deal. I’ve been bm three times but didn’t ask any of them to be mine. It’s customary in Ireland to only have a couple and could either have 1 or at least 10!

It doesn’t have to be “equal” like that. Choose who you think will be the best fit for your bridal party. Also, since she’s been such a pill anyway, definitely wait some time before asking her. After the wedding passes, she may go back to being her normal self (assuming her normal self is someone you really like!), or she may turn into one of those Married Monsters.

I think sometimes brides make their wedding party choices too soon, and then there can be a lot of pain and stress later.
