Okay, so I have four bridesmaids, and can’t really decide which one of them should be my Maid/Matron of Honor, if indeed, I should have one at all. Here’s the breakdown:
Ms. C: good friend, met through Fiance and good at planning
Ms. V: good friend since 8th grade, but grown apart recently, kinda flaky
Ms. H: friend since high school, likes to do things “by the seat of her pants”
Ms. D: Future Sister-In-Law with social anxiety, but good at planning
I just don’t know what to do. I originally figured Ms. V, because I’ve been friends with her the longest, but I haven’t seen her in over a year and every time she comes to town, makes zero effort to hang out(I used to call and make plans only have them fall through for reason XYZ, so I stopped & the ball’s in her court now as far as I’m concerned).
Now I’m thinking of not having one at all, and just doing everything by committee.

It is your day always remember that! If you dont want a Maid/Matron of Honor then dont have one. I think the decision of a Maid/Matron of Honor should be a hands down choice.. if you cant think of anyone… then maybe if you are close to a sibling or mother your mother…. just an idea:)

I chose my brother and called him my “attendant of honor” I’ve been a Maid/Matron of Honor before and didn’t really do anything special except sign the marriage certificate. Anyone can do that. So if you don’t want one, don’t have one!

It isn’t required to have a Maid/Matron of Honor. It was difficult for me to choose one and eventually I just went with the one that has been the best friend to me over the years. If you don’t have a clear cut choice, don’t feel as if you have to have one.

I’m not having one. I have my 3 sisters as bridesmaids and I’m not picking between them. If I have a question: I just mass text all three and get their responses. I don’t need an Maid/Matron of Honor for anything. I don’t really see why anyone needs one. It is your decision, but you don’t have to have one.
