I had 3 BM’s because I couldn’t pick a Maid/Matron of Honor without causing hurt feelings and such. So each had Maid/Matron of Honor duties, but no one got the “title”

Bridesmaid or Best Man1 – walked last down the aisle with the best man, stood next to me, held my bouquet

Bridesmaid or Best Man2 – was our officaly witness – inthe UK the signing of hte paperwork is part of the ceremony, so she came forward, signed the paperwork, etc.

Bridesmaid or Best Man3 – was in charge of the bachlorette, did the “MOH” speech

each had a specific responsibility, but no one was left out.

@Glasgowbound:  I like what you did there! I hadn’t even thought about that! I know so many people who say they dont want a Maid/Matron of Honor but one of them has to stand in front and your guests will assume that person is your Maid/Matron of Honor. I like the idea of having someone besides the first in line give the speech and so on.

I had two maids of honor & no bridesmaids. They are my best friends & there is no way I can choose (they are best friends too, so it’s always been the three of us together).

It worked out really well! They walked down the aisle with my husband’s two best men ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s a pic of us & the wole party ๐Ÿ™‚

i’m waiting til a year out to ask my girls (that’ll be in march) and i have 4 extremely close friends. 2 i’ve been Maid/Matron of Honor for, and the other 2 i think are going to ask me to be Maid/Matron of Honor as well!! I’m thinking of making them all co-MOH’s. And i love how @glasgowbound gave different Maid/Matron of Honor duties to each one… thats a real good plan!!!

I had two MOHs – my sister and my SIL.  At the time, my SIL and I were very close, and my sister lived really far away, so it was hard to choose between them.  Instead of doing that, I picked both.  I honestly recommend against doing this.  I had one girl who did everything (literally, everything), and another who told me that my wedding was an inconvenience to her.  After she failed to do almost everything related to being a Maid/Matron of Honor (while jumping on the bandwagon for what the other Maid/Matron of Honor planned and hosted), I honestly felt guilty using the title for her on the program.  

I’d recommend having no titles for anyone if you can’t pick between them.

@FutureMrsT1221:  I knew I’d divide up duties before I asked them, but they got input into what they did. Bridesmaid or Best Man1 was actually Maid/Matron of Honor for her sister 3 months prior. She DID NOT want to do another speech, so she didn’t ๐Ÿ™‚

@FutureMrsT1221:  I have 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man and 2 Maid/Matron of Honor. My sisters are the matron and maid of honor. If I were you, I’d suggest having no Maid/Matron of Honor or having a non-relative (BFF) be the Maid/Matron of Honor. The Maid/Matron of Honor, in my opinion, is just an honorary title. All of the maids can pitch in and help/participate equally. This might be the best way to avoid hurt feelings.

Hi there. No, the experience so far is good. I guess I couldn’t imagine if I had 3 sisters to make them all MOHs. I would probably just make everyone a Bridesmaid or Best Man and have no Maid/Matron of Honor. The truth is, there are no “rules” in this wedding stuff so if you’d like 3 MOHs, do it! ๐Ÿ™‚

I have 2 sisters, and it worked out well to give them each a title, because my older sister is married, and thus my Matron of Honor, and my little sis is my Maid!
