I say do whatever the heck you want!! It’s your wedding and your friends 🙂

You will probably want to tell them who will be in charge of what though so things don’t get confusing. For example: One icould be in charge of shower, one for bachlorette party, and one for the engagement party or something.  And then on the actual day one can sign your marriage certificate, one can hold your flowers and stand next to you, and one can do a speech/toast.

I also think you should do whatever you feel comfortable doing. I am having Two Matron/Maid of Honors and No Bridesmaids, but I don’t like the terms Matron/Maid of Honor, so I am calling mine Ladies of Honor.

A Maid or Matron of Honor  was traditionally the bride’s chief attendant.

Obviously, you can do anything you want, but why not just have 3 bridesmaids and not have a Maid of honor? Clearly there is not one of these women that you would choose to honor over the others.

I had two bridesmaids. I didn’t give either of them maid of honour title. they did equal stuff to help each.

OH had two groomsmen


you can do whatever the heck you want!

We’re planning on doing the same: two maids of honor, two best men, no bridesmaids or groomsmen.  I see nothing at all wrong with that.

I don’t think there is too much difference between the rolls really dependign on your group of friends.  they can all be bridesmaids or MOHs. The only thing is that the Maid/Matron of Honor is suppsed to be your witness as well.

Are you gonna have 3 signatures?  I alwasy thought that question when I see poeple say they have more than one Maid/Matron of Honor

I am sort of doing the same thing. I have 3 best friends, and I love them all the same. I couldn’t pick just one. So I decided that I am not having a Maid of honor. they are my only bridesmaids. I split thier roles so they all know what they can take care of, and are in charge of. It is essencially the same thing as I couldn’t choose one without choosing them all.

I saw do whatever you want.

@Atalanta: I was one of two MOHs in a wedding, and they just had one of us sign the marriage license. No biggie.
