All I have to say is DO NOT ask M to be your MOH! I have a very emotionally disturbed cousin (I posted a thread yesterday, no responses yet) and I asked her to be my Maid/Matron of Honor because she’s “family” and “will always be arounf”. I already regret it for the way she’s acting. Do you feel you have to have a MOH? After I tell my cousin it’s not going to work I’m not even going to bother having a Maid/Matron of Honor.

@RingPup: Listen to me on this one, as I picked the WRONG people. i got 2 out of 4 right. I picked people way too early. I agreew ith taking your time. See who asks you about the wedding and are showing interest without you being the one who always brings it up – it will show that they are interested and want to be involved. Just because you want them in the wedding party, doesn’t mean that they want in, or will be a good fit. Do you want a lot of help, or do you want your best friends to just stand up for you and be there?

 

I have 2 girls who are doing NOTHING, they lie about coming to things and committing to events and then back out at the last minute. there is a girl that I wish I would have added but I dont know how to ask someone to step out. Consider the people that mean the most to you and who are always there for you, not only when it is convenient for them!!!

@xiner: This too is GREAT advice. I should have thought more. I have 7 months nearly so I have time to pick the right person this time.

 

Good luck, the bridal party is a bigger deal than I thought it would be!

@xiner: I thought I wrote that myself for a second.

If anyone were to ask me, “What do you regret doing/not doing for your wedding”,  w/out hesitation I’d say picking my bridesmaids too early. As xiner said, people will show their true colors regarding your wedding. During this process you will definitely find who your true friends are and who you can really count on. If I knew then what I know now, I probably would have wait until 3 months before our wedding before picking my girls. I really would give it a few more months and see what happens. Good luck & keep us updated 🙂
