Do you have to have a MOH? How about they both be just BM’s? And let the responsibility fall with who takes it?

I’m not 100 percent sure I’m going to have a Maid/Matron of Honor but I’m pretty sure I’m going to ask 3 women to be bridemaids.

i dont have a good answer for you but gooood luck! ugh seriously this whole moh vs. bridesmaid thing I wish they never made it up! i had 2 moh’s for mine but mainly because i didnt want anyone to feel hurt.. and even then there was still drama about who gets to stand closet to me.. who gets to plan what.. ugh. sucha headache! good luck. I agree w other poster if you dont have to just keep them both bm’s and just tell them ur not into titles lol

Yea i would just have them both be bridesmaids. Don’t even mention Maid/Matron of Honor at all.

I didnt have one. I had 4 BM’s because they are all special and none more important than the others.

I also didn’t choose a Maid/Matron of Honor.  I had my sister and good friend as bridesmaids.  Both were equally important to me (or important in different ways), and I felt by making one Maid/Matron of Honor over the other I was rating them.  So I had my sis in the Maid/Matron of Honor spot, but I never officially made her Maid/Matron of Honor.  She also signed the marriage lisense.  We just listed our wedding party and bridesmaids and groomsmen on the program.  

If your want to go with two MOH’s, I might just tell your friend how important she has been in planning, and that you would like her to be next to you on your wedding day, but you also want to honor your other Bridesmaid or Best Man because of the close friendship you once, or still share.

@TaurianDoll:  I just left it up to the bridal party.  Who ever wanted to give a speech could.

 My friend gave a long speech.  My sister didn’t want to, and just said two or three words.  Our groomsmen also each gave a little speech.  

I’ve also seen bridal parties, with two MOH’s, where the girls have shared the speech, or gave it together.
