I had an interesting conversation last night with a friend who was surprised to learnt that I have no plans on having a Maid of Honour.
See to me a Maid of Honour should be someone that you have been able to rely on 100% your whole life. Now my girlfriends have let me down a lot in my life and although I’ve forgiven them, there’s still that element of mistrust.
It’s kind of a symbolic thing as well. Think about the way the Maid of Honour and Bridesmaids stand while the Bride and Groom are pledging themselves to each other, the Bride and Groom stand with theirs backs to them. The people who stand behind you as a Bride and Groom are the people who literally have your back. I have actually considered having my brother as my Maid of Honour.
Sometimes your stuck in these situations, but I am going to refuse to have a Maid of Honour.
p.s. I’m not getting married by the way,lol
