    Of course you can!  It works perfectly!  And, by the way, you can do whatever you want in your wedding.  People are doing super different things these days.  The newest thing I heard of was “Usherettes”!!  Girls being ushers that wear the bridesmaid dress in black!  Do whatever you want.

    I plan on doing just that. I asked my maid of honor this afternoon and she accepted. 🙂 She found nothing unusual that I asked my married friend to be the matron of honor.

    I also read on many etiquette sites that it’s totally ok to do this!

    I’m doing this.  My friend that got married a few years ago and just had a baby is my Matron of Honor (I was a bridesmaid in her wedding) and then my younger sister is my Maid of Honor.

    I think it depends on how many bridesmaids you’re having it’s fine. If you’re only having 3, then I might not do it as the one remaining bridesmaid might feel a little hurt. If you’re having 4 or more, I say go for it!

    Of course you can. My sister was my matron of honor and my closest friend was my maid of honor. I told my then-fiance about it and he was fine with the idea. He had a best man picked out. Then, we went to a friend of mine’s wedding and he had two best men. DH said, Hey! I can do that?? I guess the idea had never occurred to him. He ended up having two best men.

    I have 2 sisters, and couldn’t choose between them, I had a maid of honor, and a matron of honor.

    Definitely!! I’ve seen this a lot, and I know a few friends who have a sister be one and a friend the other (well, if it works of course :)) But I think this is totally commonplace these days!

    dude you can have a CAT of Honor for all anyone should care! Your day! Your Bridal PArty!  Though my sister was offended when i thought of Future Sister-In-Law as my Matron. (i didnt do it) there’s feelings to consider, but still, it’s your day!
