My Maid/Matron of Honor is also my younger sister.  We are close but I am also close with my twin sister.  I made this decision because my younger sister’s boyfriend is the best man.  My twin understands its just a title and doesn’t mean I like 1 sister more than the other.  I didn’t want anyone to have to walk with someone else’s husband or boyfriend.  This way everyone is happy and no feelings are hurt.

My Maid/Matron of Honor is like my sister ;] We actually have known each other since we were about 4 years old. We hated each other throughout our school years and ended up becoming best friends in high school. I was her Maid/Matron of Honor, so it was a no brainer that she would be mine :]

I only have one (younger) sister, and we’re close, so the choice was easy for me.

My ‘MOH’ is my oldest friend, who also happens to be an extremely organized, micro-managing master with a pretty level head who isn’t afraid to call me out on any BS (like stupid freak-outs or other unnecessary ridiculousness).

I was going to ask my big sis, but she stressed sooooo much over her wedding I would hate for her to go through that again (she’s a worrier), plus she could very well be pregasaurus by the time our wedding rolls around–not that I would care, but again, I would hate to stress her out unnecessarily.

My Maid/Matron of Honor is my older sister. I was her Maid/Matron of Honor, but I picked her because we are super close and it seemed like an obvious choice. I didn’t even have to officially ask her lol.

ditto–my sister appointed her self as my Maid/Matron of Honor, lol. I didn’t have any choice in the matter!

My Maid/Matron of Honor is my best friend since childhood. I don’t have a sister, and my best friend has pretty much been like a sister. Although we’ve drifted a bit due to years apart at college, she’s still very much deserving of the honor.

My Maid/Matron of Honor is my younger sister.  We are only 15 months apart and used to fight like there was no tomorrow, but we’re really close now, so there was no question she would be my Maid/Matron of Honor.

My Maid/Matron of Honor is one of my cousins (there are only 3 of us girls, and I’m not nearly as close with the other cousin).  I don’t have sisters, I didn’t want to choose one friend above others since I love them equally, and she is really, really good at organizing stuff.  She’s also trained to be a graphic artist and photographer, so I trust her taste (which is fairly similar to my own), and she wants to work at a wedding magazine someday–her dream job–so I know she’s excited about planning!  I think we’ll have fun doing it together, and I loved being able to include her; we grew up in the same town so we’re pretty close and visits are easy.

My Maid/Matron of Honor is my oldest friend in the world (known eachother since 5) I haven’t officially asked her yet but plan to this weekend! I hope she says yes… we’ve always discussed being eachother’s bridesmaid but never a Maid/Matron of Honor. We were best friends growing up and then split apart in college due to my partying ways and her more laid back style (I don’t think she’s ever entered a club to this day, her parents were very strict) but ever since I have been with my Fiance her and I have gotten closer once again. Its funny its like were on the same wavelength now (I’m more serious and family focused like her), where as I’m losing closeness with some of the “party girls” I considered my best friends for the last 5-6 years… funny how life takes a turn on you!

I actually have two MOH- they’re both very close friends, and I just couldn’t choose one of them since they both mean so much to me! I’m just having the two of them, and no bridesmaids. 🙂

My Maid/Matron of Honor is my best friend. She and I sat next to each other in our first year of high school and have been friends since. We’ve lived more than 3000 miles away from each other for most of our friendship but everytime we are together it seems like no time has past.

My Maid of Honor is my younger sister. We weren’t very close growing up, but since we have gotten older, we have become much closer. I am also having a Matron of Honor. She has been my best friend for the past 10 years. She is getting married next Saturday and I am her Maid/Matron of Honor. Both of these girls were obvious choices for me. I don’t know where I would be without either of them.

My Maid/Matron of Honor is one of my oldest, dearest, best friends. It was a really easy decision for me.
