French Phrase of the Day: Demoiselle d’Honneur

French Phrase of the Day: Bridesmaid / Maid of Honor

I learned this phrase while shoe-hunting for a wedding I’m in (hi, Kristen!) and getting my bridesmaid dress tailored. Apparently the word is the same for maid of honor too.

I was telling my shoe-buying angst to my French teacher and he asked me if weddings in the U.S. were opportunities to meet girls and if singles are seated at their own table. Um… no, je crois que non. Apparently, it is for les Français… or for him anyway.
