Why can’t she do both? My brother in law is one of FI’s groomsman and is also marrying us. I don’t think it needs to be one or the other.

@Miss Chocolate Milk: I think it will be okay. Definitely talk to her and tell her what you would like, and see if she’s willing to take on the task.  One of my FI’s groomsmen is also doubling as our officiant.  I was worried that it was out of the ordinary, but it seems like it happens!  If she’s okay with it, then I think you should totally do it that way!

@Miss Chocolate Milk: Definitely talk to her about it! I think she’d be more flattered than overwhelmed!

I personally feel like it would be a bigger honor to marry you than to just be Matron of Honor… that means that you’re trusting her to join you in marriage, not just asking her to stand by your side. 

That being said, if she is willing to be your officiant, you could always ask her to wear a dress that coordinates with the BMs and list her in the program as Matron of Honor as well- I mean, just by having her be your officiant, you are in a way giving her a position of honor, so it’s not much of a stretch at all!
