I've lost my maid of honour he has refused to do it. I don't know what to do as he is my best friend do i just chose someone else. Thoughts please xx
Hi would you feel comfortable with some one else filling that role :)
Have you sat and talked about his reasons why? Maybe it's nerves/anxiety?? If he's adamant he's not doing it then as your best friend involve him in deciding who can do it x
Take the time to ask him and listen to his thoughts; it may be nerves so maybe change his role to suit him?
Maybe he just feels he's not up to it or to nervous to do it. If that's the case maybe sit with him and chat about it and let him help decide who would be best to do it and let him help them without him being at the forefront of the attention?... of he's your best friend he will be great at helping you find someone else and helping them with everything xx
I didnt have a maid of houror maybe sit down and talk to him see if he doesnt want to do ot if there is another role he can do to be part of ur big day xx
Maybe he doesn't like the idea of being in a predominantly female role, maybe he is more traditional, I didn't have a maid of honour and didnt miss it. Maybe he could have a different role
We're not having any bridesmaids/moh or best man or ushers. We just want our friends enjoy the day with no added pressure or stress, and our friends all seam to be very happy with our decision.
Ask him if he would prefer to be your witness , then he still is there with a very important role to play .....
Take care , love Sarah xx
Have a talk to him about it. See why he won't
do it now
Maybe people have said brings to out him off or made fun of him being ' maid of homour" they can be cruel
How about friend if honour or man.or honour title rather than maid
You don’t have to have one. If he doesn’t want to do it, you can’t make him. If you wouldn’t choose anyone else, don’t, just have bridesmaids.
I was the Gay of Honour at my friend Elizabeth's wedding and it was wonderful. You should sit down with him and explain that while it may not be a big deal to him, it's a huge one to you. Also she would have murdered me if I said no!
