I would either not have a Maid/Matron of Honor, or only have 1, because if you name them all Maid/Matron of Honor, but only ask one to give a speech, I think that could cause issues

Just skip the Maid/Matron of Honor title altogether.

Choose your sister or forgo the Maid/Matron of Honor title completely. I was in the same situation and picked my sister. It was an easy tie breaker.

“Honored Attendants”- all 3 of them.

If I were in your shoes I’d make my sister the Maid/Matron of Honor and have my best friends as BM’s.  I’ve never known of someone having more than one Maid/Matron of Honor.  That would seem odd to me.

I would just not have a Maid/Matron of Honor at all. It makes things more simple. If you truly feel you need one, have your sister be it. Friends can’t argue the blood relation card. I’m not getting married yet, but that’s what I plan on doing for less drama and simplicity.

Best of luck!

Either make them all bridesmaids or just have your sister as MOH- your friends should understand. If all of them are Maid/Matron of Honor then the title becomes meaningless.

Just have three bridesmaids! Or pick your sister. I think three maid of honours and no bridesmaids seems a bit ridiculous and will be really obvious that you couldn’t choose/didn’t want to hurt feelings

adventureready :  Your update changes everything.  I would forgo the Maid/Matron of Honor title and have them all as maids.

j9marie :  I’m having 2 Maid/Matron of Honor and 3 Bridesmaids. I don’t find it odd at all. I have two best friends (no sisters), so I wanted them both to be maid of honour and share the duties.

I have a big bridal party…8 to be exact. My sister is my maid of honor, one of my best friends is my other maid of honor, and my other best friend is my matron of honor. I couldn’t just choose 1 as I have different relationships with all 3. Looking back it was probably best just to have my sister as my Maid/Matron of Honor to make it easier but I’ve already asked all 3 of them and it would be horrible to change it now and hurt someone’s feelings. It’s your wedding so do whatever you feel is appropriate.

adventureready :  if they’re all your maids of honor, then none of them are. You can’t have a “best” with nothing else to compare it with. Make them all bridesmaids.
