Would they even want to be in it?

the only people that should be involved in your wedding are those who are supportive of your marriage. end of story.

A little confused about why you’re getting married again anyway, but hell no, I wouldn’t even invite someone to my wedding if they were that unsupportive of it. Who wants them? Why would they want to be there unless they are hypocrites or eager to screw it up. Good riddance.  They’d be less butt hurt if they pulled those sticks out.

stephaniee24 :  I’ll let other bees address the sisters, but I wanted to mention that matron of honor and maid of honor are the exact same role. The only difference is “matron” means married lady and “maid” means unmarried lady. So it’s not like 2 different roles. If you’re fine with having a matron and a maid, then you should be perfectly fine with having two maids. It makes no sense to say “I hope one gets married so I can have a matron and a maid!” What difference is it going to make if one gets married?

stephaniee24 :  No weirder to have 2 MOHs than to have 1 maid and 1 matron. Because both scenarios are the exact same thing.

Well, true, you are not getting married again, per se or not, because you can only do it once, the second ceremony  not being a wedding , but a celebration of an existing marriage.

Daisy Mae above is right of course, there is no  difference  between  these roles, merely the convention of a married woman being called a matron and an unmarried  one being called a maid.  

Frankly OP,  you sound  like you have a  very difficult and self absorbed family , do you really want to have to save up for huge  expensive , potentially problematic ceremony with them all  ? You are already married, and presumbly very happy so why not  save up  for a dream holiday  rather than a dream wedding  –  really , that ship has sailed.  

(sorry unasked for advice and  opinions I  know )
