emilyrko:  I only had one Maid/Matron of Honor but I have seen this a few times.  It’s your wedding so do what you want.  I personally would still be honored if some asked me to be co Maid/Matron of Honor and wouldn’t feel any different than I would if I was the only one.  I would ask them whichever way is easiest since one of them travels so much.  If they truly are great friends I think they would feel the same way.

I have been a Maid/Matron of Honor twice and am now having both of those brides be co-MOH. I have mentioned it to them before so I don’t think it will be a suprise but I sent my bridal party postcards to ask.

For one of the brides, I was co-MOH with her sister and it was great to have that support because you don’t want to go crying to the bride about everything but it’s hard bc she’s my best friend lol So I would talk through things with her sister. Also, I’m type A and sister is type B so we worked well together and she was able to handle all the stuff related to family, while I ended up doing a lot of friend stuff, planning and crafting. 

For the other bride (married first), I was the only Maid/Matron of Honor and the bridal party was full of slackers so it would have been nice to have a co-MOH actually.

I think as long as the two MOHs can get along and help balance each other, it will be great and they will be grateful in the end.

My Husbands two best friends both had co best men. The 3 of them all have been friends since they were little so none of them could choose.

My sister’s BFF and I were co-MOH for my sister’s wedding and it was awesome. Neither of us would have wanted her to have to pick between us, and since we both live in different cities from my sister, we used the co-MOH role to effectively split up the tasks in ways that were best for us and our schedules, so my sister knew neither of us was ever stretched too thin! It was totally awesome and my sister’s BFF and I really bonded during the wedding prep and wedding weekend!

I had my sister and my best friend as co-MOHs and it was perfect, my sister took charge of my shower and my best friend took charge of my bachelorette. My Darling Husband also had 2 best men.

I would get them together and ask them at the same time so they understand that they are both being asked and there’s no awkward confusion. Just tell them how they both mean so much to you and you want them both to be your co-MOHs together. It really doesn’t seem like anything to be anxious about!

emilyrko:  I’ve been a Co Maid/Matron of Honor and in my own wedding now I have Co MOHs (one is married, so we’re saying maid and matron). One of them lives in my town, and the other a few hours away. They’ve split up duties amongst themselves according to their strengths/abilities and have said it’s been much easier money wise.

emilyrko:  I’m doing co-MOH’s! One is my sister, who is 19 and in college and will be studying abroad, so she’s not going to be able to plan a lot, and the other is my BFF.

I called my sister first and told her I wanted her to be my Maid/Matron of Honor, and she’d be standing closest to me, but I didn’t want to put a lot of pressure on her to plan things so I wanted my friend to be a Maid/Matron of Honor too. She understood, and was relieved. She has already been a Maid/Matron of Honor in another wedding so I think that helped. Then I called my other friend and also explained the situation, and she was just happy to be a Maid/Matron of Honor (she was worried I’d just have my sister and would miss her “only” chance of being MOH) so she didn’t care about sharing the title ๐Ÿ™‚
