    You can definitely have three maid of honours! It’s your wedding day, and as you said you are so close with all three of them 🙂

    I’m having 2 MOH’s.  It was originally supposed to be a Maid of Honor and Matron of Honor, but the single one decided to get married before the wedding, so now I have 2 Matrons of Honor.

    I think it’s fine. I didn’t apoint a maid of honor so that an option too.

    I’d consider going without an official maid of honor. The more titles you start handing out, the more complicated everything becomes.

    I think if half your bridal party gets the “honor” title it loses its specialness. I’ve had a friend in this situation and she went without a maid of honor.

    you don’t NEED a maid of honor and it does lose its specialness once you dole the role out to half of the bridal party

    WOW.. you have the same exact dilemma I have.. I have bridal party of 6 with 3 of them being MOH’s..

    Two of my Maid/Matron of Honor are both my sisters, my best friend being the 3rd.  It might be very different, but I’m sure my other bridesmaids completely understand the sister/BF reasoning.

    One sister is loving that she gets to do a speech, the other sister loves to plan.. and my Boyfriend or Best Friend is well, she’s my bestie and is always there for me!  I simply couldn’t decide, because I love them all.

    I think it’s fine to have 3 since you have 6 all together.  HOWEVER – I wouldn’t go asking anyone too soon!  You are more than a year out.  Give yourself time to be sure, you’d be surprised how many girls are on here wishing that they hadn’t asked someone so early.

    @canadian-b33:  I wouldn’t leave it up for a committee vote.  It’s hard enough to get three ladies to agree on where to go to dinner; don’t make them vote on who gets a special honor that they all would in theory want!

    I’d say leave it as no MoH till about 3-6 months before the wedding then decide.
