Who Does A Bride Choose For Maid Of Honor?

Choosing a maid of honor is a very personal decision for the bride and typically depends on her relationships and circumstances.

Here are a few common choices:

  1. Best Friend: Many brides choose their closest friend as their maid of honor. This might be a friend from childhood, high school, or college or someone they’ve become close to more recently.
  2. Sister: If the bride has a sister, especially one close to her in age, it’s quite common for her to be chosen as the maid of honor. This could be a biological sister, a stepsister, or a sister-in-law.
  3. Close Relative: Some brides might choose a close female relative, like a cousin or aunt, if they share a strong bond.
  4. Daughter: If the bride has a daughter who is old enough, she may be chosen as the maid of honor.
  5. Mother: In some cases, a bride might choose her mother as her maid of honor, particularly if they have a close friendship and a mother-daughter relationship.

The role of the maid of honor is significant as she supports the bride throughout the planning process and on the wedding day itself. Therefore, the bride usually chooses someone reliable, supportive, and close to her heart.

The critical factor isn’t necessarily the person’s relationship with the bride but their relationship with the bride.
