    No way

    I have two Maids of Honor and as far as I can tell no one’s feelings were hurt.  I have two fantastic friendships with two fantastic people and I didn’t want to pick one over the other.  I could have had 2 bridesmaids and no Maid/Matron of Honor instead, they’re just titles given to people you want to stand beside you while you get married.  My Fiance has a Best Man and a Best Woman (brother and sister).  Do whatever makes sense to you 2.  I’m sure your friends will just be happy to be a part of it.

    I’m having 4 maid of honors there was no way I could choose between my three sisters and didn’t want to leave future sister in law out. I love that they are going to stand out amongst my bridal party and do not regret my decision. It’s your wedding do what feels right.

    I’m a “co” matron of honor and it hasn’t bothered me at all that I’m sharing the title.

    I was in a bridal party with 2 MoH and it was just annoying, and overly complicated.

    I had two out of 7 girls.  It was no issue. I’m pretty sure both of them were relieved to share the responsibility, actually.

    Personally I don’t see the point in having two maids/matrons of honor – ultimately your Maid/Matron of Honor is one of the two witnesses to your marriage, and signs your marriage license. You’ll have to pick one to do the signing, to stand next to you, etc.

    <br />That being said, it’s purely a personal thing. I never look down on/think bad for people who have co-MOHs, and would totally be a co-MOH if asked.

    My sister had 2; myself as her maid of honor, and her best friend as her matron of honor. I will also have 2, mys sister and my best friend. There will also be 2 best men.


    It worked out fine for us, do what works best for you!

    My 2 sisters were my Maids of Honor and my best friend was my Matron of Honor.  It worked out great… they shared duties equally and everyone was happy.  Do what you want!

    To me it seems silly. There’s only one person who can stand closest to the bride. That person from a guest perspective is Maid/Matron of Honor.

    I’m doing a maid of honor and a matron of honor.  I think it’s totally fine and haven’t run into any issues.

    I am having two MOHs as well. At first I felt my long time BFF deserved it, but I have another best friend who is just as deserving.

    They were both completely understanding and supportive. I am having my long time BFF as my main Maid/Matron of Honor though, and talked to her about it before I made any decisions and she said it perfectly…”this is your big day. I am honored to even be a part of it. I will do whatever you want and am always here to support your decisions.” (This is why she is my best friend) And when I told my other best friend she was just as awesome about my decision. Without me knowing, she even messaged my long time BFF and thanked her for agreeing to the two MOHs idea and allowing her to be one.

    If they are truly your friends, they will support whatever you decide.

    Yes, you can do whatever the ferk you want, it’s your wedding! I had three girls, one was my Matron because she is married and has a baby, the other two were my Maids of Honor. It worked out because my sister was in school out of state so she couldn’t really help out much, but I still think she deserved that title. And no one’s feelings were hurt.
