I was in a similar situation. I asked my sister to be Maid/Matron of Honor but she’s not in the best place in her life right now. She’s just generally unhappy and anything related to the wedding pisses her off. My BFF has been amazing and so excited. I understand why you want your sister to be Maid/Matron of Honor, that’s why mine is my sister. I really suggest having two Maid/Matron of Honor. It’s so disapointing when someone isn’t excited to be involved and it really put a funk on everything we did. Having an enthusiastic friend be a Maid/Matron of Honor as well will make things better. Just my opinion. 🙂 Good luck!

I’m having my two sisters and a friend as my bridesmaids, I decided not to choose a Maid/Matron of Honor they are all just bridesmaids!

I couldn’t decide between my two best friends, so I made them both Maid/Matron of Honor

4 of my sisters are my bridesmaids, I will not be assigning a Maid/Matron of Honor. It will result in some hurt feelings, especially because I am close to all my sisters. There’s not always a need for any Maid/Matron of Honor except title. But if you want one, than I don’t see why you can’t have two Maid/Matron of Honor. It’s YOUR celebration, you should be able to make whatever rule you want to.

Since you have 6 bridesmaids, why not have 2 MOHs?!

If I had that situation, I TOTALLY would have 2!

@Booknerd: yes, I agree why not have 2. I am having 2 because my BFF is in Europe but my one good friend who I known for the longest is here in the states.

I votevote ore to have 2 MOHs also. I only have 3 attendants and I’m having a Maid of Honor and a Matron of Honor. I just couldn’t decide between the two girls. I think in you case it would be totally acceptable, especially with that many attendants. It would also take some pressure off your sister who may not be in the best place to do it all on her own.

I had a similar situation between choosing my FH’s sister and my sister.

(Backstory: there is a 12 year age gap between my sister and I whom I have never really been that close to and just starting hanging out in the last 2 years. My FH’s sister is pretty much my best friend whom I have know and been very close with for 10 years). In the end I chose my FH’s sister as my Maid/Matron of Honor (and her husband is my FH’s best man). My sister and her 3 kids are in the wedding party as well as FH’s other sister, her husband and daughter.

It may sound bad… keep in my stories can not be told in one post. And I am very happy with my decision. And the only thing that kept me deciding was how other people would react. In the end with the support of my FH I made the decision that was best for me.

With that being said.. do what is right for you.

Like other Bees I think it would be totally acceptable for you to have 2 MOH’s.

I agree with having 2 Maid/Matron of Honor.   Your family might not like it.   My coworker and her family are upset because her sister is having her and her BFF as Maid/Matron of Honor.  They wanted her to have her sister only as Maid/Matron of Honor.  I think you should do what you think will make you the happiest on your day.
