I need advice! I don’t know whether to ask my sister to be my maid of honor or my best friend. I know asking my sister would be the right thing to do but I am way closer to my friend. Would it be weird to as them to be co-maid of honors?

Whoever you are closest with should be your maid of honor.
Since that’s your friend, have her as Maid/Matron of Honor and your sister as… Bridesmaid of Honor? Or you could just have both if your sister will be upset about it.

If one of the possible MOHs are married, you can call her Matron of Honor (if it is ok) and the other Maid of Honor.

Think about it this way: who do you want planning the shower, the bachelorette? who knows you best? who will get everything right and plan things just way you’d want it? who do you want next to you on the most important day of your life?
if your friend will be a friend for life, you know the answer. just remember, sisters are sisters for life no matter what- and maybe two maids of honour is the right decision for you. it’s your day girl, do what your heart wants to do!

I say have both as MOHs… I’ve been to weddings where there were 2 Matrons of Honor and it wasn’t weird at all.

I think it depends on how your sister would react to not being your Maid/Matron of Honor… I voted both.

Both! That’s what I did and they don’t seem to mind sharing the role at all.

I feel you! My dilema was between my big sis and my lil sis. Finally I decided, they’ll be my ONLY girls in my wedding party so that they are both equally important and the most important. (;

Both! I’m having both my sister (Matron) and my best friend (Maid) but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with two Maids of Honor! That’s the beauty of it — it’s your day and you can do whatever you want!

I think you can have both. My sister and I were co-MOH for our best friend/roommate from college. It actually worked out well, we could split all the Maid/Matron of Honor duties/costs, so we were able to help our friend even more.

I say both. My cousin did this. Her sister was an automatic Maid/Matron of Honor but she also included my sister as Maid/Matron of Honor because she actually introduced my cousin to her now hubby. They can share and help out with all the duties.

I voted to have them both! When my closest friend got married she also was faced with this same situation. She asked us both to be Maid/Matron of Honor for her. I was just happy to be in the wedding and it didn’t bother me at all to have you sister as a moh also. It was sort of hard to plan the shower with her sister, but thats a whole other story.

I voted for both as well! That way you don’t strain the relationship between you and your sister, or your friend, and both can be involved.
