So, one is married and one isn’t? Right?

I am having a Maid and a Matron because my sister (obligatory MOH) lives out west now.  So, my matron of honor (and best friend, besides FI) has been doing the dirty work here in town.

I know your situation is a tad different but I don’t see any reason why you can’t do it.  They should  understand that they are both equally important to your life and the beginning of your marriage.

I am having a Maid and a Matron too. I learned a long time ago that if a title pleases someone that much and it’s simple enough for me to accomodate, I’ll do it!

I think you’re overthinking it.  Plenty of people have a matron and maid of honor.  I have 2 maid of honors.

@Jennyemm:  I am having my sister as Matron of Honor (mostly because I feel like I have to) and then my best friend as Maid of Honor since she has been amazing and helpful throughout the whole process. Im sure it will be fine! 🙂

I’m a matron of honor in a wedding next year and I was so excited to find out that there was also a maid of honor. I didn’t feel less appreciated or hurt at all. I was happy that she asked me at all 🙂

I plan to do the same thing. My sister is pretty much my obligatory maid of honor, but my best friend really also deserves the title. Thankfully, she’s getting married this weekend, so she can be my matron of honor! Personally, if I were MOH and found out there was a matron, I’d be STOKED because it meant someone else had to help me plan the shower!

I’m having too matron’s of honor. One of them is being a total brat about it (feels like shes been replaced, etc) and the other is so happy to have been choosen. It really just depends on the women you’ve picked. Either way its your wedding and your true friends should respect your wishes. Good luck!

I’m hoping to get engaged soon & will probably have 2 Matrons of Honor and a Maid of honor… i’m hoping they all realize how special to me and that  I couldn’t pick one! Is having 3 honored attendents too much? I’m kind of torn on the decision…
