I would say your cousin, just because she is family and will always be a part of your life.

If you choose between two friends, sounds like you made up your mind on Nicole, and would stick with it

Who are you closest to? I asked my cousin because she’s my best friend and we’re super close. She’s also super broke and super busy – I knew she’s be psyched for me but wouldn’t be able to pull off a bridal shower or some fancy bachelorette party. Fine by me, my mom ended up handling the shower and we had an inexpensive sleepover-style bachelorette party. I even paid for her dress and shoes. Because none of that stuff mattered to me as much as having her standing next to me on my big day. It’s sounds like you’re over-analyzing a bit with the list and pros and cons and such. This is a decision to make with your heart, not your brain – who do you want standing next to you and supporting you on your big day?

@MrsBudz2Bee:  I agree with wonderstruck! It’s who you’re closest to. Don’t worry about hurting someones feelings because if you pick the person you feel the most connected to, chances are nobody will be surprised that it’s who you picked. :]

@MrsBudz2Bee:  based on your comments I would say Nicole. The distance thing doesnt have to be a big issue as long as she can commit to spending time closer to you when its close to wedding time.

I almost posted the same type of thing on here but i decided not to choose a Maid/Matron of Honor. The one friend who i was planning on asking did/said some horrible things and we barely speak now and the “runner up” got engaged right after me and didnt even ask me to be a bridemaid (and has been so stressed planning her own wedding) that i was just like forget it! Everyone else lives way too far away (out of state) or theres some other issue. Fiance decided not to choose a best man so i was like whatever!

I definitely say choose who your closer to ‘ meaning: who knows you the best and would be most supportive in making sure your day goes how you want, I wouldn’t base it on who you spend time with the most or financial capabilities. I’m sure she’ll go over and beyond for you; I had to choose between 3 friends as well although I had said” choose” it really wasn’t that hard. I have no sisters and I chose my bestfriend” Sissy” is what we call each other,  of almost 20yrs(which speaks volumes because we are only both 26yr of age LOL) The other 2 10yrs, although i spend more ‘party and social time’ with these two (bcause Sissy has 3 kids) I feel a special connection with Sissy that I may never feel with another woman ‘ she really gets ME. altho we’ve all been together for the last 10 yrs and i consider them to be sisters as well  , in the the beginning it was just her and I. She is thefriend that has given me the most support in my relationship with my fiance and she loves my child as her own. And I could NOT imagine anybody else standing beside me on that big day( except the future hubby ‘ ofcourse lol) Hope my sharing helped!!!:)
