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?

    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!
