A couple months ago, my fiance and I went down to the court house to just do a quick marriage. And I told a friend of mine what the plan was and she was like "oh I'm maid of honor right?" At the time I didn't care, the person I asked first to do the honors is married so I decided I could have a matron and maid. But due to conflicting work schedules we ended up not able to do it. One comment she made (among others but whatever) was something about how well she knew me and that I just wasn't going to get married.
Fast forward to present day. He properly proposed last week (ring, suprise, family blessings, EVERYTHING) and I have yet to tell this friend, and I have no idea how to say I don't want her to be the maid of honor. She's already claimed the position before and I want supportive friends, not ones who assume what I want.
How can I do this nicely? Please help!
