    You can do whatever you like 🙂  The only thing that might become a problem is that it is helpful to have someone ‘in charge’.  5 girls are going to have a lot of different opinions, and its probably going to make it a little more stressful for you if there isn’t some kind of heirarchy.  Keep in mind that its also an honor to be asked to be a bridesmaid!

    I think 5 is a bit much. 

    I had a Matron of Honor and a Maid of Honor.  That was it.

    Are they your only BMs? If so, you could always just call them that. I would just put the most organized girl in command but let them know they’re all equal :).

    I said it was fine, if that is what you want.  I am sure all the girls know that they are special to you, since you have asked them to be in your wedding.

    I like the idea of making them all your Maid/Matron of Honor. It always bugged me a bit that, come wedding time, we’re supposed to start ranking our friends. I say pick them all as Maid/Matron of Honor, and they can divide up any duties among themselves–or appoint someone to be “in charge,” if that helps things go more smoothly.

    I was going to have 2 MOH’s. My younger twin sisters were going to be the ones with the job until I changed my Maid/Matron of Honor to by best friend. She can handle the responcibilities a lot more than a coupld High School kids can. I love my sisters but even they admitted it was more work (and money) than they were expecting. Now 5 MOH’s? That is an aweful it! I mean, if you want to do it nobody can stop you! It’s your wedding. But, are you having any other BM’s?

    You can still have your Future Sister-In-Law be your Maid/Matron of Honor and have the other 4 girls be your BM’s that way you don’t pick one over the other and they still get the honor of being in your Bridal Party. Having all of them be your MOH’s somewhat defeats the purpose of having one.

    That’s sweet that you want all of them as your MOH’s! I’m personally having 2, and then 3 BM’s. It’s hard to choose! I say do whatever floats your boat 🙂

    I’d say if you can’t choose, just call them all BM’s.  You can, however, as caszos did, have a Matron AND Maid of Honor.

    Oops, I accidently meant to click that it would be fine.

     

    You’re the bride!!!!   The etiquette police aren’t going to swoop in and stop your wedding and I don’t see how anyone’s feelings will get hurt.

    The grammar police might take issue, though, if you refer to them as maid of honors instead of maids of honor (please use the correct form!)

    I hade two MOHs – they are my twin cousins, and we grew up like sisters. I couldn’t imagine not having them both there, and they’re both special to me.

    more than two seems a little excessive to me. Bridesmaids all have special duties on our big day, and you can delegate tasks as you see fit. What’s the difference in the title? being more… special-er?

    I had a Maid of Honor, two Matrons of Honor, and two Bridesmaids of Honor. I didn’t mark anything in our programs, but they all knew who they were and everyone was fine. Really, I called them my posse.

    @kelcheer412: I really like the idea of you divvying up the tasks. That way it eliminates confusion. I think it’ll be great :).
