My two best friends were my Maid of Honor and My Matron of Honor. I too had no bridesmaids. Just them. my Maid planned and attended both my bachelorette and bridal shower since my Matron lives out-of-state and couldn’t attend. However, they both were extremely supportive and helped me out tremendously throughout the planning process. I couldn’t have asked for better women to stand up with me :).

Your division sounds great! I think it will work out fine since there are no other bridesmaids involved.

I do! My bff of 14 years and my sister. Well, technically my bff will be my matron of honor and sister maid of honor, but same thing. I’ll likely have 4 other bridesmaids too, though I’ve yet to “pop the question” to them.

YES!!!! My best friend is Matron of Honor and My FIs little sister is my maid of honor. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. If you love them both and can’t decide, have both!!! My girls had no problem with sharing the role, and have actually become very close themselves while doing this together!

I have a Matron of Honor (I was her MOH), a Maid of Honor (the girl who went on a rando trip to Paris with me) and my younger sister, who will be honored as the Sister of the Bride.
My sis and I had a rough relationship growing up (everyone knows this… we were not kind), but it has improved dramatically in the last year. She doesn’t handle multiple stressors very well and was happy to not to be in charge of the bachelorette at the same time that she was getting out of college and getting her feet on the ground. She’s happy reading during the ceremony and taking care of smaller tasks that pull on her artistic creativy, rather than her (lack of) organizational skills with multiple women.

Im currently having this debate, so thank you to everyone who has given their thoughts and opinions having been a co-MOH. Im worried it will hurt my sisters feelings, but ill take some time to mull it over
