MOH issues! My best friend moved to devon recently (I'm in oxford) and I'm not sure whether or not to ask her to be my MOH. It's just she's so far away and she hasn't really shown much interest in my wedding. She isn't that organized and I can't see her wanting to help out much she is a notorious party girl.We've been best friends for 12 years so I really don't want to upset her and I don't want this to break our friendship. I was thinking of not having MOH and just bridesmaids I'm not going to have many I was thinking of just her and sister. Has anyone else experienced this? And what are your thoughts on just having two bridesmaids? Thanks xx

Lots of people choose not to have lots of bridesmaids. I am only having one (my daughter), when I was bridesmaid I was the only one. Two is a nice number so I would go for it.

I’m having two matrons of honour, my sister and one of my best friends.
Neither of them seem overly bothered about my wedding but I understand that they both have their own lives and troubles to deal with and I’d rather they concentrate on themselves than worrying about my day. As long as they are both there on the day, that’s all that matters.
I’m sure your friend will be more than happy with being a bridesmaid but just because she hasn’t shown much interest doesn’t mean she thinks any less of you or your day x x

Isnt a maid of honour just a bridesmaid that organises stuff?! If she isn't very organised she might be relieved to be a bridesmaid and not maid of honour.
