I will be in my friends wedding next May. I’m the Maid/Matron of Honor and there will be one bridesmaid. Her wedding will be around 50 ppl.

This is totally fine. It would be fake to have 8 people stand up there with you if you aren’t really great friends with them.

Why not co-MOHs? I’m only having two BMs and one Maid/Matron of Honor.

Two bridesmaids seems just right for a wedding of 50. The real question is, what can they/will they each do for you?

The Maid/Matron of Honor has certain responsibilities that earn her the title, so if you expect one of them to step up more than the other, she deserves to be the Maid/Matron of Honor. If they truly will work together and contribute equally to all of the bridal party responsibilities, then they both deserve the honor.

I only have 2 girls in my wedding party, 1 is maid of honor and 1 is a bridesmaid. I can’t imagine having a big wedding party. The 3 of us have been best friends for a couple of years, they didn’t seem to mind at all that one was maid of honor and one wasn’t. The one i made maid of honor was because she is older than the bridesmaid and better able to do things like plan the shower, bachelorette, etc. Bridesmaid I think appreciated this and understood.

I’m also having a small (we invited 55) wedding on a Sunday, and have 2 bridesmaids. I didn’t want to pick between them, so I just asked them both to be bridesmaids. Fiance has three groomsmen – again, he didn’t want to pick so they are  groomsmen. I guess I felt like a Maid/Matron of Honor only makes sense if you have one attendant or 3+. Just my two cents.

I am having two but I originally was only going to have one. I called the first one my Maid/Matron of Honor when I asked her and the other one I asked to be a bridesmaid without thinking about it. If I planned on two I might have called them both bridesmaids or both maids of honor. I sorta feel like they both carry the same weight and should have the same title.

Also, my wedding is also about 50 people.

@ebet24: In that case, I wouldn’t worry about it! Your Maid/Matron of Honor deserves special recognition, and I can’t imagine that your other friend wouldn’t understand.
