    I’ve seen it done without issue at a few weddings but I knew nothing of the ‘behind the scenes’ drama. Go for it if it works for your situation! 🙂

    You can have 5 MOH if you want! As long as they’ll “play nice” and do all the “jobs” for you well together! You can do it however you want! In this case I think it’s more than appropriate to have 2!

    I have 2 Matron on Honors. One is my sister. The other is my best friend. There is no way I could choose between them.

    I’m having 2 maids of honor (my sisters), so I think it’s fine! Especially since you’re technically giving them separate titles. Just think about what duties/responsibilites you want each of them to take on. For example, I’m having my younger sister be our witness and sign the marriage certificate and asking my older sister to do the speech, since my younger sister is super shy anyway.

    I am having a maid and matron of honor. It’s working out just fine, no drama 🙂 Plus I have three additional bridesmaids. My maid of honor is my cousin who I knew would be thrilled about it and she is the best at planning parties etc..My matron of honor is my best friend from college.

    I’m having a maid and a matron of honor as well. One lives out of state, but even if she didn’t I couldn’t imagine choosing between the two of them.

    Since both of your girls are friends, I think it will be even better!

    I had a matron of honor – my best friend from high school/college – and a maid of honor – my sister.

    My matron of honor planned my bridal shower, signed the marriage certificate, and gave a speech at the reception.  My sister planned my bachelorette party, stood next to me at the ceremony, and sat next to me at the head table during the reception.

    Two of my besties will be my Matron (she just got married on the 12th) of Honor and my Maid of Honor. They both deserve the title, they’ll both have the title.
