I’m not sure of the proper way but I would have as many maid/matron of honor’s as you want.  When you say two matron’s and a maid of honor, who would be the maid of honor?  If I’m reading right you only have 2 sisters?  Would you have another friend be a maid of honor?

There’s no “proper” way.  You can have whoever you want be whatever you want them to be.

i agree with the others, you can have as many as you want.

rather than starting my own post, i have a similar question that maybe someone can answer. i made my sister maid of honor. but she is married. does that mean is actually my matron of honor?

and then i am thinking of giving my best friend the title of maid of honor (although i am hesitant because i know my sister won’t like it that i do this)

@dynamic_duo: Yes, that’s what it means.  And you don’t have to also have a maid if you have a matron, but if you WANT to, that’s entirely up to you.  Too bad for your sister, I guess? 🙂

I agree that there is no proper way… this is your wedding and you can do it anyway you want.. IMO three maids of honor does seem like a lot.. but how many BMs do you have?

@mbtupnorth: i still say you can go for it. don’t let numbers dictate what you want. you might feel weird about having three “of honors”. but then you also might feel bad/regretful about not having your best friend as an “of honor”. and i personally think its better to feel weird about numbers than it is to feel bad/regretful about not including people. 

my wedding party is totally not normal. i  have 1 MOH, 5 BMs, and FI has 2 GMs. totally uneven and it bothered for me so long. but then i try to imagine not asking one of those girls and i always come to conclusion that this is how it has to be.

Do what you want…Its YOUR wedding..no proper way. But if you choose to put them both as bridesmaids talk to them and explain why you couldnt choose between the two. I also have two older sisters but neither are married yet and I put them both as bridesmaids and told them I couldnt choose and did not what to hurt feeling one sister understood and the other not but shes ok with it now. Good Luck!
