I’m always curious about a bride knows her Maid/Matron of Honor… you can tell if someone moved around a lot, or is closer to their friends than to their family (or vice versa)… just endlessly fascinating!
Who did you pick as your MOH? If I’m missing a category, let me know and we’ll add it to the poll. 🙂
ps If more than one applies to your bridesmaid, you can select multiple options! Same goes if you have multiple MOH’s!

I was really torn between my best friend (from college) and my SIL (who is like a sister). I went with my best friend, but then felt bad because my SIL was the one who threw my shower, asked me about planning, etc. My Boyfriend or Best Friend is Out of Town and doesn’t know anything about weddings, so she didn’t really know what to do or what to ask. She took her duties really seriously the day-of, though. They were both great. I should have made them both Maid/Matron of Honor.

I’ve known my Maid/Matron of Honor since middle school, and we’ve always been fairly close, but she’s been especially there for me the last few years when I was deciding to change career directions and move out to CA. I really felt like has been a true friend, not that my other friends aren’t great, but knew I wanted her as my Maid/Matron of Honor as soon as we got engaged.

Ahaha. I like this one.
My Maid/Matron of Honor is a man, you chauvanist pig
No one could compete for my Maid/Matron of Honor… it was an easy decision. She has been my best friend (dare I say… BFF) for 19 years! We have never fought once! We’re like sisters, minus the fighting. I always felt like if neither of us found husbands, we’d just move in together and live together forever. I was pretty content with that. Unfortunately, we both found male-mates.

My Maid/Matron of Honor and I have been friends for 23 years… since the age of 4. I can’t remember a time that I didn’t know her, and I can’t imagine anyone else as my Maid of Honor.

This is a good question! We’re not having a maid of honor or best man, primarily because the Mr. can’t pick! 🙂

My Maid/Matron of Honor is my mom, and as I expected, I’m the only vote for that so far. She’s my best friend and I can’t imagine having anyone else by my side.

My maid of awesome is my best friend from college. It was initially a really close call between her and my acutal sister, but when my sister acted like a horses-ass about the whole engagement she got demoted.

My Maid/Matron of Honor was my best friend from age 3…but I sort of wished I could have had 2 as to include my best friend from college. She was a Bridesmaid or Best Man, but I still felt a bit like I wanted both!

I have a maid of honor (my best friend from college) and a man of honor, one of my brothers. My other brother is walking me down the aisle, so I needed something equally special for the other!
