    Oh dear, this is tricky! I am so lucky that I have 1 sister and we are very close. My sister was my Maid/Matron of Honor, no questions asked and friends can’t really get upset if you choose your sister. Otherwise, I would have been debating just like you!

    I think having a maid and matron of honor is the best choice! I was in a wedding with only 2 attendants. We were both the “maid of honor” because the bride couldn’t pick.  I say pick both, then no one gets their feelings hurt, and as you’ve said, it’s really more of a title than anything. 🙂

    I would probably ask them both to share the title. If they get along okay they can split responsibilities among themselves. If they don’t get along well, another option is to not have a Maid/Matron of Honor at all and split the duties between all the girls. One does the shower, one the bach party, one the speech, one holds your bouquet, etc.

    Either split or…don’t have a MOH! Not necessary! Have all 4 girls be equal!

    @MrsRight:  I would have them both be Maid/Matron of Honor. That way you don’t have to choose one or the other. 🙂

    I decided not to pick one of my friends as Maid/Matron of Honor – they were all bridesmaids/bridesmen. No one was obviously “ranked” above the others – I’m not entirely sure why an Maid/Matron of Honor is necessary.  Typical Maid/Matron of Honor duties can be split or shared (which is what? Giving a speech and maybe organizing a shower?)
