Depends on the person.  But becareful. If you didnt want to give one the honor of Maid/Matron of Honor officially, you essentially did by asking to say something in the form of a speech since that is a typical MOG duty. I would ask each of them, if they are comfortable, to say 30 seconds to a minute worth if a speech so they feel equal.

If I were the other two, I would feel the other person was favored and annoyed that one person got the “special attention” as a speech giver and to the guests the honor of Maid/Matron of Honor and yet we all had to share all the duties/cost.

Personally, I wouldn’t want to give a speech.  I’m just not one for getting up in front of people and being sentimental/entertaining.  Not my thing.  And I would be very nervous/anxious about doing so.  I would gladly let someone else give the speech, but that’s just me.  You know your girls best.
