Matron of Honor Role and Dress

By Christine

Hello there! I am back! Thanks to Anna for filling in while I was away.

I went home to the Philippines to attend my sister’s wedding and of course catch up with family and friends.

I was my sister’s matron (what a horrid word don’t you think???) of honor.

My role as Matron of Honor was to……

Table of contents:

  1. host (and pay for) my sister’s (the bride-to-be) hen’s night
  2. be at her beck and call on the wedding day (it was so organised i didn’t really have to do much)
  3. say a few words (which turned out to be this melodramatic speech that made everyone cry!!!!)
  4. keeper of their cash wedding gifts (very common for asian weddings to receive cash gifts)
