- Wedding: September 2009 - City Hall
I have never been a bridesmaid or Maid/Matron of Honor in anyone’s wedding. When I tell people this, they find it hard to believe because I have a fair number of friends and many of them are married. I usually end up playing some other role though, like “unnofficial photographer” or “that girl who wasn’t a bridesmaid but spent all her time with the bridal party”.
Anyone else never been a bridesmaid?

I’ve only been an Maid/Matron of Honor — just for my sister, just the one time. But we’re getting married at the “early” end of our group of friends, so I might be a bridesmaid in the future!

I’ve never been a bridesmaid either. I was a flowergirl a million times when I was young, and I was a junior bridesmaid once, but never a bridesmaid or Maid/Matron of Honor. A lot of my friends aren’t married yet though, and my sisters are all younger than me.

Oh, me! I’ve never been a bridesmaid. Somehow, I’m always the one friend who is just on the other side of making the cut. It actually has always bummed ome out, but at least if/when my sister gets married, I’m garunteed a spot there! 🙂

I have been a flower girl once and a bridesmaid once. I usually do something-guest book, pass out bubbles, etc.

Meee!!!! Can you claim you’ve only attended 2 weddings though? Yep. I never ever went. I was always included on my parents and they went … I skipped. I’m the first out of my friends to be married too. So really, I’m completely clueless about all of this wedding stuff.

I’ve never been one. Nor has any of the girls in my bridal party. It’s been a lesson to all of us as to what we’re all supposed to be doing–including me, the bride. It feels weird to tell people what to do, but at the same time, you don’t want to miss out on some of the best moments ever (Bridal shower? Bachelorette party?).

I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man for my twin sister, but that’s it. A good majority of my friends are older and married, so i’m not worried about it.

Until my wedding, my sister’s favorite line was “Always the bride, never a bridesmaid.” We were each other’s MOHs (we get along well, but let’s be honest, we really had to be), but other than that, neither of us have been in a wedding.

Me, neither! But, I am the first of my close friends to get married. I hope to be a Maid/Matron of Honor and/or bridesmaid for my friends. I already have so many ideas for their weddings!!
I have been a flower girl twice though…does that count for anything? 🙂

Oh me neither. A flowergirl when I was three but that’s it. Luckily one of my 3 ladies has some experience or we’d all be lost.

I’ve only been in one wedding as Maid/Matron of Honor. But then again I haven’t been to a whole lot of weddings and only one close friend is married.

Do you have something in your life, like career or school, that friends would see as a deterrent to asking you to commit yourself to a wedding in the role of a BM? I didn’t ask one of my closest lifelong friends to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man because she was in the midst of completing a dual masters degree at an out of state university and I knew she had no time/money… I didn’t want her to feel guilty when she couldn’t help out like the other BMs.
Not being a Bridesmaid or Best Man is a good thing… think of all the money you are saving!!!
