Hello there! Ok so I'm struggling a bit with my bridal party. I have chosen to have my two sisters, my daughter and my sister in law and i feel like I need a maid of honor, however I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings by asking one not the other (sister). Has anyone else been in this situation or similar? Any advice welcome lol thank you in advance xx
Are both sisters older than you or both younger, as if it was me and one was older I’d ask that sister tonbe maids of honor. You could ask one to be maid of honor and one to be chief bridesmaid or put one in charge of the Hen night if your having one or to save any hurt ask your daughter maybe?
I’m having three bridesmaid plus my two daughters as flower girls. My bridesmaids asked me who was maid of honour and I said no one, I’m not choosing a ‘favourite’ friend. They’re all happy with that. It’s your wedding, do what makes you happy x
It's a big honour to be a bridesmaid so anyone who gets offended and needs an extra elevated status as maid of honour needs to re-examine their priorities. Personally I don't think maid of honour is a must for a wedding so I wouldn't pick one
You don’t have to have a maid of honour, you can keep them all as bridesmaids and just assign them different jobs
I only had one bridesmaid, glad I had her on the day, turned out my veil was so long, I couldn’t walk with it down on carpet as it pulled my backwards, she was there to carry it for me
I had 4 bridesmaids, and didn't have a maid of honour. Traditionally, it would be the maid of honour to sign the wedding register, but we had had our mum's do that....
I was completly extra and had a maid of honour and a man of honour. They’re sharing the role with planning stuff and helping out on the day
I had my bestie sign the register with me. My sister did a reading. We didn't fix labels as such. It worked for a very small wedding (50 guests)
In the last few weddings I've been to which had multiple bridesmaids, I wasn't aware who was MOH, or even if there was one. It's honestly not important to anyone else, so perhaps don't name one at all and avoid any awkwardness.
I have 5 bridesmaids and I’ve decided not to have a maid of honour just assign them different jobs xx
Why label people? They’re just all bridesmaids. If you want one of them to sign the register then that’s fine, give the other a different job.
I'm not having a maid of honour only 3 bridesmaids they are all equal in my eyes and don't like th idea of labelling one more important.
