Best Man is a woman - how do I list her on the program?

Recommended Posts

Title says it all!


I've read one etiquette thread that you list a female "best man" as a Maid or Matron of Honor, but I think listing two MoH would be confusing to guests, and doesn't make clear that the MoH on his side is his attendant.


Anyone else out there got that problem? How did you solve it?

i think this has probably happened a lot altho i dont know what brides did. i would say call her best girl or best woman, depending on her age. i dont think its that big a deal because a lot of guests dont even read the programs.

Hehehe yeah. I wasn't even going to do programs, but FH thinks we need them.

I think I'm going to go with MoH for the Bride, and MoH for the Groom. (huh.gif)

Well folks, the decision is made, and I'm not going to do any more edits. (I like to just make a decision and run with it - I'm not one to dwell too long on any one issue)


They will be listed this way:


Matron of Honor for the Bride......Holly Golightly

Maid of Honor for the Groom.......Mary Poppins


Follows what seems to be the generally accepted ettiquette, yet makes it clear whose attendant is whose.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
