The maid of honor is not the person who helps you the most.  She is the person you would call at 3AM to hide a body.

My guess is this friend knows you have 2  MOHs already, to add her would only look like an afterthought to her and kind of an insult to the others – like, look ladies,  you weren’t doing enough so Sally is another Maid/Matron of Honor too.

I’d just not give the title to anyone so they are all equal.

Doesnt the Maid/Matron of Honor sign your certificate as a witness to the marriage?.. if so, do all three sign?

I kinda agree wtih future mrs. fitz..there should really only be one MoH and the MoH isn’t necessarily the one who does everything…and yes, life happens, and maybe your MoH may not be able to do her usual duties, but that is why you need to make sure they know the other bridesmaids and maybe your mom is there to help her with anything she needs. Honestly, I’d let ur friend off the hook as MoH since it sounds like sh’es going through alot (unless you think that would just hurt her feelings, let her keep the title)…..but keep everything else the way it is. Just appreciate what they can do for you.

Good luck!!

The more people who you give the title to, the less important it becomes.  Like if there were 7 people who were the Queens of England, the title wouldn’t be nearly as big of a deal.

There should be just one Maid/Matron of Honor, she would be the one to sign as the witness, and take the position closest to you. This person doesn’t have to be the one who does the most work, but the person  you are closest to.
