Bridesmaid is a high title. Your friend shouldn’t be insulted that your MOH is family.

What is you have a Maid of Honor and a Matron of Honor. All of DH’s sisters did this because there are three of them.

@roxy821:  I thought Maid and Matron titles were based on whether they are married or not?

@GrrovyHippieChick- You may be right but I have just seen it used to signify importance.

Are they your only two maids? My sister and FSIL are my maids so I dubbed them both maids of honor. If you have more than just those, why not have two? No one said you couldn’t 🙂

@eeosgood:  Hello!  I read this post and felt like you and I are seperated at engagement birth! LOL.  I asked my cousin, who lives 6hrs away to be my MOH.  She has been the closest thing to a sister that I have had my entire life.  Problem is: she’s 6 hrs away….next problem: everything is about her!  My best friend (locally) is one of my BMs.  She went with me to get my dress, has helped with the “engagement” party and has offered help with anything else…even set up my Pinterest account & started sending me ideas.  Basically…been my right hand woman.  I wanted to give her a larger title than “Bridesmaid”…even though that is a huge honor in itself.  So…I asked her to be my “Matron of Honor”.  I read an article that the “maid of honor” is single and the “matron of honor” is married.  However, my FH is having 2 “Best Man”s because he is equally close to these two guys & could not choose.  All in all..you set up “who does what” on the actual day…up until then-it should be a team effort.  I’m not sure if this helped at all..but it was a relief to me that someone else had the exact same issue as me!  It’s you & your FHs day…do what you want! Wink

Maid and Matron of Honor. Maid of Honor -not married. Matron of Honor-married.

If its just he 2 of them, why give them titles other then just bridesmaids? or if you really want a MOH pick who you want to be your MOH. Don’t worry about what other people think and if you are affaid of hurting your friend or cousin, talk to them about it and why you are doing what you are doing. If they are really there for you they will understand.
