I just recently got engaged, but I have always wanted my best and closest friend (of 8 years) to be my maid of honor. The problem? One of my other close friends (of around 6 years, but introduced to me by my hopeful MOH) has been determined to plan my wedding since my fiance and I started dating. I am 100% happy that she is so willing to help me plan my DIY wedding, and wedding and event planning is her future career, but I'm concerned that this is not proper, since traditionally the MOH is the right hand gal when it comes to planning. I do plan on asking her to be a bridesmaid, as we are also fairly close. The other slight problem that could thicken the pot: these two friends of mine aren't exactly on speaking terms. How do I approach this situation, and whats the best way to let down my party planning friend? OR, am I making a huge mistake by not choosing the party planner as my MOH?
