Yeah, I wouldn’t revoke the Maid/Matron of Honor title from the original two.

I don’t think it’s weird to have them all wear the same dress. I would just consider doing something slightly different with the Maid/Matron of Honor flower bouquets (or jewelry or something) compared to the Bridesmaid or Best Man.

Yeah, that’s what I was going to suggest.  Same dresses but different bouqets and/or sashes.

I see nothing wrong with having them wear the same dress! I think the smaller the bridal party; the simpler the better! =) Im having 3 girls and thinking of keeping them all in the same gown, and I do have one Maid/Matron of Honor.

Ditto to purplebee‘s comment.  I think it would look absolutely fine if you had them all in the same dress.  Gussy up their bouquets or jewelry.  Is there any possiblity that you could give the MOH’s one predominant color in their bouquets and then use another complimentary color for the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquet?

  I was in a wedding where we all wore the same dresses, but the bridesmaid dresses were light blue with a brown sash while the MOH’s dress was brown with a light blue sash. That seemed to work out well! I was also in one where we had a guy on the bride’s side and a girl on the groom’s side. The groomswoman (or whatever you want to call her :-)) wore the same style dress as the bridesmaids, just in black. Personally, for our upcoming wedding, the Maid/Matron of Honor will wear the same dress as the bridesmaids.

I think it is fine to have them all wear the same dress.  I also think it is fine for his friend to stand on his side and your to stand on your side (despite gender).
