We have decided on our wedding party! Yay!!!! And of course, now I have questions...
1) My MOH has been a friend for 23 years. We grew up together and we're like sisters (I'm an only child and she has a brother). She has gone above and beyond for me so far with EVERYTHING. Everyday when we talk, she asks me about anything WR going on and if I have an appointment or something, she always offers to come along. I'm in the camp that MOHs, BMs, etc job is to show up with the right dress on the wedding day so needless to say I'm very appreciative. Anyway, I told my parents who is in my wedding party and my parents weren't too happy with my choice of MOH. They always thought she was egotistical, had made up mental illnesses (she has ADHD and depression) and was always late on purpose to make an entrance. Every time I say "Oh mom, MOH is coming with me to try on dresses." she always says something snarky. In my MOH's defense she is always late, and it's expected. She went off her ADHD meds since she's TTC so at work or home she could go from one task to another and to another and not pay attention to the time. At home, she has a very demanding husband. 364 days of the year, idgaf that she's late, I just would really like it if she isn't late on my wedding day hahaha. Anyway, how to do I tell my parents politely that I've made my choice, I can't demote her or kick her out of the wedding and not offend either one of them? My dad has made it crystal clear he will not say one word to her even if she approaches him. I don't want this to be a pissing contest with me in the middle.
CN: Parents hate MOH.
2) FI's best man is dating one of my BM, and FI only has two people in his WP. After the ceremony when everyone walks back down the aisle, do I have the best man and his GF walk together, my other BM walk with the groomsman and the MOH walk by herself? Or do I do bestman walks with MOH, groomsman with one BM and one BM by herself?
Thanks in advance!
