Opinion needed?

Recommended Posts

So I'm not sure if this is where this should go, but oh welll ....

 

I was engaged before, long story short we broke up (obviously) and now I'm across the country and infinitely happier with my new fiance. Anyway, my mom's friend was going to by my MOH in my first attempt at a wedding, which I did because I wanted to make my mom happy. She was ok, but she has way too much time on her hands and was constantly sending me links to tips to try and save money. Fine. But then when I started shopping around for ideas for bridesmaids dresses, she insisted that she didn't want to wear what everyone else had agreed upon and that she wanted to wear a different colour and choose her own dress. I agreed to a slightly different colour ("antique lilac" while the other girls were in lilac) but I still wanted her in the same dress. She even went as far as to refuse to go shopping with me when I was in town because "I'm not buying my dress yet". Well, I wasn't asking you too, I just wanted you to see what I'd like you to wear.

 

Anyway, now that we're having a destination wedding, my fiance and I initially weren't going to bother even having friends at the wedding, but then he decided it would mean a lot to him to have his best friend there standing up with him. So my question here is, am I obligated to have the same person as my MOH because I asked her in the first engagement? Because I'd really rather have my best friend do it lol.

I do not think you are obligated to have the same MOH - I would definitely have someone that you actually want by your side. That is a tough situation though as she is your mom's friend. Have you talked to your mom about it this time around? Hopefully she will understand.

 

Good luck!

the answer you need to hear is: hell no you are not obligated. choose whomever you want! dont pick somebody just cuz it'll make your mom happy.

The whole reason to have someone up there with you is to love and support you and be there for you in the most important moment of your life. Pick who you want to share it with...

You don't have to have her!! If your mom says anything, or if her friend gets offended, just explain that since you're with Mr. Right you don't want anything you were planning with Mr. Wrong...like your MOH!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
