    It’s your day – do whatever you want! I’ve seen several weddings with 2 maids/2 matrons/1 maid and 1 matron 🙂

    @Waitingforthatdaywithray:  At least where I’m from (Georgia), almost everyone has a matron and a maid! That’s really not unusual or tacky at all! What could possibly be tacky about it??

    I’m having a maid and matron of honor—both are my sisters! My younger sister will be standing immediately next to me, and then my older sister. It’s not causing any drama, my older sister had even told me that if I didn’t want her as a bridesmaid because she’s too old, she’d understand, ha! She’s only 9 years older than me, and I’m excited to have them both honored. They’ll be wearing a different color from the other bridesmaids, so everyone will know they’re both Of Honor.

    I had a Maid and Matron of Honour, and in a few weeks, I will be the Matron of Honour standing next to the Maid of Honour for a friend’s wedding.  Its becoming more and more common.

    Do your thing!

    You can. From experience (and this completely depends on how the two girls are with each other), its a good idea to ‘dictate’ the ‘jobs’ to the girls. Like, one plans the bachelorette and the other plans the shower kind of thing.

    I was the Maid of Honor in my bestie’s wedding and her childhood friend was her Matron of Honor. The bride had the Matron of Honor stand by her and the Maid of Honor (me) was second and then it went by height. It’s your day so do whatever you want. Plus, since one is married and the other isn’t, no one will feel left out! (:

    I am having two matrons of honor. I do not even have a maid of honor. Both of them are my sisters and I could not imagine my wedding without having them standing up there next to me. Do what you want. If you want both of them up there with you being honored then do it. Don’t commit to the norms!

    @Waitingforthatdaywithray:  You can have ten maids of honor if you want – it’s your wedding 🙂

    But yes, that’s common – I was Maid of Honor in my bff’s wedding a few years back and she asked another of her friends to be Matron of Honor to help me since I was out of state. It worked beautifully.

    It’s perfectly fine.  I actually had two matrons of honor.

    I know I’m a little late to the party, but I’ve seen it and I think its a great way to include everyone! I hope you asked them both 🙂
