You can do whatever you want – it’s your wedding. 🙂  I’m having 7 too. Seemed like a lot to me as well, but they all get along so great I can’t imagine leaving any of them out.

I don’t see why not. But, think about what the Maid/Matron of Honor generally does. Would you BM’s split those duties? Would they give a joint speech at the reception? Would you arrange them by height to make it seem more fair?

One reason for having a Maid/Matron of Honor is to specifically help you and be your right-hand lady.  I only had a MOH! lol.  It’s just nice to have someone who is really responsible and can handle things for you, when you need them.  And possibly your go-between to keep the other bridesmaids informed and on task.   Plus, this person would be most likely be “in charge” to plan your wedding shower.  But I guess, if they all work together well, it might be okay to have them all be bridesmaids.

I’ve also heard of brides naming everyone the Maid/Matron of Honor.  So maybe you could have five MOHs?  You will need to dilineate your expectations so they know what you expect them to do, but it would be a great way to honor all of them!
