FI and I are having 7 each in our bridal party. I had a hard time choosing my MOH but ended up going with my closest friend from home/growing up, who I have known the longest to by my MOH and FI chose his best friend from college in lieu of his two brothers (so that neither would feel excluded).
However, I ended up wanting to add another MOH – one of my best friends now who introduced me to FI and he’s wanting to add his brothers.
Should I add one more MOH to even it out? Or just keep the two? It wouldn’t be just obligatory to ask this third BM to be MOH, we are close, but I’m worried that it will be too many to have 3 each (out of 7) and also that the other BMs will feel even more left out if I add a third (since a few of them are a group of friends from home).
Should I have three MOHs or just leave it at two and have it be uneven?

I have two and a VERY large bridal party, but I feel like having 3 maids of honor, takes away from the honor.
My MOHs are my sister and my best friend for 26 years – theres no way I could choose between them.

I have 2 – my sisters. I think 3 may be a bit much but it’s your wedding do what you want! You can have 3 best men and 2 MOHs – no big deal!

@pbhatta4670: I have two MOH’s because I’m having 2 ceremonies so one for each! Makes it a bit easier and I was able to incorporate both of them equally 🙂

I had two, they are my best friends and are twins so…. 🙂

I have 2. My best friend and my SIL. I couldn’t choose. Especially since I knew they would both be around helping me with the planning. I think 3 would be a bit much. FI only has one Best Man so we are uneven and I think it will be fine. My SIL and brother had 2 MOH and 1 Best Man and it was fine.

I have 2 because I couldn’t choose. I would not add one just to make it “even.”

Hmm okay – thanks for the perspectives, bees! I think I’ll stick with the two then…
