I have 3 BM’s, but don’t want to select a Maid/Matron of Honor. I’m pairing them up with my FI’s groomsman based on personality matches, and as they are all his brothers- he’s just putting them in order by age (30-24).
Lots of people think this is odd, but they are all equally important to me, are all putting in equal effort and I have asked my sister to sign the registry.

I’m not having a maid of honour or chief bridesmaid. I’m only having 2 BMs and they’re both friends from my and Mr CL’s friendship group from school/college. I didn’t want to choose between them, just like Mr CL is having a best man and a best woman because he couldn’t choose between them either.

I don’t have a maid of honor. But then, I don’t have bridesmaids, either. But I don’t think there’s anything at all wrong with not having a maid of honor. There’s no rule that says you aren’t allowed to get married if you don’t rank your bridal party. I actually think it’s kind of nice that you don’t have one.

I’m not having a maid of honour either as both of my bridesmaids are my sisters, that would be awkward! But even if they were all friends I wouldnt have one, it seems sad to make one more special thatn the others even though I know its traditional.

Im not having a maid of honor either, me and my 2 best friends were gonna do it friends style and take it in turns to be each others, but thats not gonna happen, so im not having one, they can both be equally important.

I am not having a Maid/Matron of Honor, and to be honest I believe it’s a really great idea!

I had a maid of honor then we mutually agreed that she should be a regular bridesmaid so now I don’t have one and I am happy about that.

I didn’t have a moh- but then again I had no bridal party except for my little niece as flowergirl. Best decision for me as I had no time to shop with school and didn’t want to upset anyone with choice

I’m not having a Maid of Honor, nor is my FH having a Best Man. Our wedding party is made up of our closest friends and family; they don’t need an additional distinction. 🙂

I had my sister and close friends as Bridesmaids, and my hubby had his two best friends as groomsmen. I had my sis up front, and used her to sign the marriage licence, but other than that I made no distinction. They were both important to me and I felt by choosing someone I would let the other down.

I am not having a Maid/Matron of Honor either. I honestly, do not feel that I am close enough with any of my girls to make them my Maid/Matron of Honor. We’re all really good friends but I don’t really have a best friend.

I’m not having one! I just don’t have one best friend, so I found it easier that way.

I’m not having bridesmaids and was planning on having just a Maid/Matron of Honor and bestman, but my best friend moved to another state and won’t be here to plan anything. Reading everyone’s comments is making rethink my plans. I think I’m going without a Maid/Matron of Honor too. And my Fiance doesn’t really have amyone he cares to make a best man either.

I have two longtime friends as “equal” bridesmaids and my brother standing up on my side too. They’re all dear to me in different ways and I couldn’t elevate one above the others!
