Aunts of honor sounds odd- it sounds like you’re giving them a title and that’s it. Why not ask them to give toasts at dinner or at the rehearsal dinner instead?

I’ve heard of a guest of honor and I’ve also heard of having a “special thanks” part written into the program and thanking those who have helped and supported you. I plan on doing this with my 2 aunts who have been there for everything. They are also going to have reserved seats in the 2nd row (couldn’t fit them in the first) and they are also going to have responsibilities in the ceremony. One is keeping a white sheet to be put under me when we are taking pics in the grass and the other will place the broom in front of us to jump over after the ceremony–traditional thing.

My sister did this thing where she walked up the aisle and gathered a flower from each important woman in her life (4 aunts, me, her other 2 bridesmaids, mom, grandmas, and a friend). Each lady got a special mention in the program where it explains what she was doing, and they got a corsage to signify who they are. 

That, or you could just ask your aunts to be in your bridal party. I am not a fan of dropping friends for a wedding, but wouldn’t it be more meaningful to have those two ladies next to you rather than having one that doesn’t even know your phone number?
