They’re usually the ones who throw the shower and bachelorette party and the ones who stand up next to you at the altar.  One of them will hold your bouqet for you. 

Is one married?  Maybe one could be Maid of Honor and the other Matron of Honor?

I willhave will have 4 bridesmaids and I was the maid of honor for 3 of them! So I think I’m just going to have maids of honor and best men without the distinction. Although I will have them walk down in a particular order.

You can. Of course alternatively you can call them both bridesmaids. I only had two BMs, and I called them both BMs because I despised the term “Matron of Honor” for my married best friend – to me “Matron” doesn’t fit a woman in her 20s.

Also, to match, we called both the guys “groomsmen” without specifically calling one Best Man in the wedding program. (Even though one gave the speech so he was obviously best man).

I have two maids of honor.  I was stressed on asking either my sister or my best friend, so I decided to make both of them MOH. I Asked my BMs with a card and a cookie and when they called I explained how I wanted them both to be MOH and they were happy (plus it takes the pressure of party planning off one person).  Its not the traditional way, but after reading on the topic, a lot of people do this

@lazybee123:  

I struggled with this too but ultimately I had one MOH, and she helped me with everything from fitting to bachlorette to bridal shower. The other one was a close friend and I made her just a bridesmaid. Ultimately, titles do not matter, I think it looks strange to have two maid of honors, but that’s just me.
