Do you and your maid of honor go way back? Is your maid of honor an old friend or a family member? How long ago did you meet your maid (or matron) of honor?

    My MOH is my (soon-to-be) 19 y.o. cousin, so I've known her her entire life, lol.

    I've known her about 13 years now, and she's been one of my favorite people for about 11 of them.

    My MOH and I have known eachother for about 10 years! I first became friends with her sister (my age, a bridesmaid) and then we stopped and became friends with my MOH (2 years older than I) and back and forth a couple times during middle school and high school, then finally they became old enough to be sister friends so I became friends with both of them for good (get along more with MOH (obviously)) sometime in high school! Been friends since so at least 4 years straight

    Since I was born lol. My MOH is my god-sister; she's 2 years older than me. My mom and her mom (my godmother) have been friends since high school so there was no way that we weren't going to be friends.
    I love her so much!

    Mine is my cousin! I've known her since she was born so getting close to 30 years now. She's basically my sister and I can't imagine not having her there! I was MOH at her wedding too.

    Mine is my best friend of 25+ years. I’m the god mom of her son & we talk/text everyday. I was originally going to have both a maid of honor & a matron of honor - but she never got to experience being a solo MOH before & really wanted to. So I made the decision to have 1x MOH.

    I had two maid's of honor! I met one in 2009 (best friend from high school) and the other in 2012 (best friend from college), but we didn't become friends until 2013. So 9 years (at the time of the wedding) for one and 5/6 years (at the time of the wedding) for the other!
