    You should ask whoever you want to be your Maid/Matron of Honor. I’ve read posts by other brides on here who picked their aunt or even their mom to be their Maid/Matron of Honor – age doesn’t have to be a factor 🙂

    I henestly dont think age is a facotr when picking someone to be in your bridal party. If thats who you want to be your Maid/Matron of Honor I wouldnt let age bethe factor that stops you from asking her

    pick whoever you want and don’t even let the age issue come into play. my maid of honor is 17- 10 years younger than me! and i don’t care. she’s like my baby sister and i want her up there with me.

    My sister is my moh and 16 yrs older than myself. It doesnt matter the age, its who you want standing up there!

    My Maid/Matron of Honor is ten years younger than me. AKA I’ll be 21 and she will be 11. I don’t care though she is absolutely my best friend and my rock.

    I was in a similar situation. I’m close with my oldest sister (10 years older than me) that lives locally but I have another sister (5 years older than me) that lives in Washington. It was a little weird picking 1 sister over the other to be my Maid/Matron of Honor but everyone understood and there was no drama.

    My only concern is that at the bachelorette party in Vegas, she might feel a little out of place with all my friends. She will probably skip the clubs, but she’ll hang out during the day.

    I’m sure your sister will be honored and will find a way to work everything out.

    My Maid/Matron of Honor is my 43 year old aunt and I am 28. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am actually shocked when other people are surprised by my choice.

    I say do it. I want to have my MOM’s sister (my favorite aunt) as a bridesmaid. I’ll be 26 and she will be 51.

    My bridal party was 41, 31, and 27 — age didn’t even cross my mind, I just chose who I wanted.

    Age shouldn’t be a factor. It’s about having people you love standing next to you and being there on your big day.
