Why not! There is no rule to say you can only have one MOH, and it sounds like both these ladies deserve the honour. Just make sure you tell each MOH that there is another MOH – if they are good friends they won’t mind!

People are doing away with the traditions and that includes the possibility of having two MOH’s. Some people will probably bring up that a MOH doesn’t really have any other duties but just to show up and stand by you at the alter though, watch out.

I’m not having two MOHs, but I don’t see what’s wrong with them! What do you mean by announcing it? Announce it the same way you’d announce your bridesmaidS, but say MOH instead: “This is bridesmaid Katie and Bridesmaid Lisa, this is Maid of Honor Jenna and Maid of Honor Sarah”

I have a friend who had two, I say do whatever you want!!

 

Also… I’m sorry but I’m an English teacher and I have to say… it’s “Maids of Honor/Honour” 🙂 That is with all kindness possible!!!

 

Best of luck, let us know what you do!

No reason you can’t have two- I’m having two matrons of honor- one of whom lives 3+ hours of me- there’s a lot of planning that can be done via e-mail.

Wasn’t sure either what you mean by announcing- my DJ is announcing them both at the same time.

@joiner20:  Since you want #1 to have an elevated status, make her MOH and the other friend a bridesmaid.

My two first cousins (sisters who are 25 and 21) are both MoH in my wedding.  I agree about the doing away of traditions. They are both 500 miles away, also, so won’t be doing much other than being moral support and the ones I bounce ideas off of.

absolutely nothing wrong with having 2 maids of honor. BUT i would be careful not to give the impression that you only asked your local friend to be maid of honor just so you’d have someone to do everything for you.

i have a friend who was one of two maids of honor for her friend’s wedding. the other maid of honor was the sister of the bride and lived several states away. my friend did everything for the bride: threw her a shower, planned the bachelorette party, helped with anything and everything. at the rehearsal dinner, the bride introduced her wedding party. when she introduced the sister she went on and on about how close they were, how much she loved her, etc…and then she introduced my friend and said, “this is jane. and she’s my other maid of honor because my sister lives so far away.” nothing about how long they had been friends or how much their friendship means to her, no thank you for all my cousin did…my friend was really annoyed and hurt by that. 

i’m not saying that the only reason you want 2 maids of honor is just so you can have someone there all the time. i would just be careful not to make the local girl feel that way to avoid any hurt feelings or awkward situations 🙂

I don’t see why you shouldn’t have them both. I’m having two maids of honor – one is my best friend from high school the other my best friend from college. I love and adore them both and I couldn’t imagine not having them both at my side on equal footing on that special day. So I say go for it.

Just so you know I have no problem with it especially because I have 2 maid of honors! My twin sis and my best friend! They have no problem with both of them holding the title and I didn’t want to have to choose. GO FOR IT! It’s your wedding!

I am having 2.  Technically they are Matrons of Honor, but the same idea.  My SIL and my BFF.  I knew both would have equal parts in helping me plan and both have different strengths.  I didn’t think it would be fair to single out just one.  And to make it easy for standing/processional order BFF will be with the Best Man and SIL will walk with my brother (her husband).
