I'm going to be a Maid of Honor!


Recommended Posts

A friend of mine asked me a while ago if I would want to be his Best Man. I of course said yes. Months later I pointed out how that wouldn't work since I had started my transition.


He and his fiancee said I could be their Maid of Honor instead and I've been helping her make plans. We've already figured out the theme, colors, venue, time of year and the Bridesmaid outfit!


I'm less than a few months in and I'm already living the life I feel that I was meant to! I also had my ears pierced recently and have been building up a jewelry collection.

I am completely jealous...in a good way! This would be such an honor. As  @VickySGV says validation and I’ll add affirmation and acceptance of the new and improved you! Have fun with it!


My Best,

Susan R?

Though "Best Man" can be more flexible than tradition dictates. I have a friend who co-opted a lesbian radical feminist named "Pax Athena" to be his best man when his original best man called off because he was in jail in another state.


May your dress be adorable!

@ThankOurTroops What a heart-warming story to read this morning! I'm so happy for you. It sounds like you have a truly amazing friend who accepts you completely. I can't imagine a more affirming experience than this. Can't wait to see the bridesmaid dress!

That's pretty! I'm guessing spring, maybe summer wedding?

There is indeed a way: PM a mod, admin, etc... and tell them what you want done to your post. We live to serve.

If I ever get married again, any guys on my side of the wedding part will either be called Bride's men, Squire of Honor, or replace either with Bride's person or person of honor.

Oh, this is so cool! And I am so envious. Dresses, dresses, dresses! Oh, however will you choose! Whatever the bride decides, I guess!

Well, the prime function of a bridesmaid dress is to make the bride look radiant. My wife and I joke that the ideal bridesmaid dress would just be black and white in a Guernsey cow pattern. Horns optional.

      We got off lightly with Fiona, compared to some other areas.  I hope that those in the path of Ian fare equally well.

      We're keeping a close watch on it, too.

      Good morning all, coffee’s ready   We went to the mall yesterday and I got some long tops to wear over leggings.  Wife got one also.     I would normally love for Ian to come visit (that’s our son’s name) but not this time. Hurricane Ian is getting stronger and the cone of likely direction is pointing this way.  It would have to be greater than the category three before I’d leave.  But it does give me concern.  I’ll have to increase the number of dock lines on my boat and get my dinghy out of the water.  It’s in a relatively safe place but you never know.   Our condo association had a party last night. We had a band and potluck, and byob.  Our next door neighbor was looking for a table and we invited them to sit with us.  We had a fun time.   our plan for today is to go see as the crawdads sing.     I am very happy for each and everyone of you who are coming out at work, getting name changes and getting your surgeries accomplished.  Congratulations!  There have been so many recently that I can’t keep up.  Just know I congratulate each and everyone of you.   Hugs   Willow

      Welcome  Debbie.  Take your time as you find your way around.  My time here has helped me find and accept myself.  Simply posting and reading about the journeys of others has been amazing.  We are not alone!   Hugs,   Charlize

      I was once told that when the men in the room start to cross their legs in self protection i've shared too much.  That same group was a LG meeting but by group conscious became LGBTQ.     Hugs,   Charlize
