Sure you can.

I had a maid and matron of honor, plus one bridesmaid.

Yup, definitely. Maybe ask them to take charge of different responsibilities, so that each one feels important – i.e. one of them serves as the legal witness and signs the marriage certificate, while the other one is in charge of holding your bouquet during the vows, wrangling your veil, whatever.

Absolutely! I was the Maid/Matron of Honor in two weddings within a year, for my two very close friends, so I’m having them both be Maid/Matron of Honor in my wedding. It can get tricky figuring out who does what from the traditional duties, but as long as they are both open to it, you can do it easily with no feelings hurt. Plus, it’s kind of nice for them to have each other to lean on for information/ideas.

Go for it. One of my good friends had her sister and her best friend from childhood and it was fine. In fact, I’ve seen a bunch of weddings where there were two maids of honor

I was involved in one of these 2 Maid/Matron of Honor things. My advice- if you have certain expectations of your bridal party/MOHs, designate tasks. Example: ask one to man the shower and one to man the bachelorette. Two chiefs doesn’t always work out.
