Based on what you are saying, I’d either have all of them be just bridesmaids or all be Maid/Matron of Honor.  Typically the Maid/Matron of Honor is the one who will witness your marriage license and who will stand next to you during the ceremony, hold your bouquet etc.  Not everyone chooses to have their Maid/Matron of Honor be the one to witness, so that’s not a requirement, but you will have to make a decision on who will stand next to you.  Other then that, you can choose to have all MOH’s or all BM’s and nobody other then maybe the girls themselves will notice or care.

I had two Maids of Honor.  They planned the majority of my shower and bachelorette party.  One stood next to me on the altar (the other Maid/Matron of Honor and bridesmaid sat in the front pew), and they gave a toast to us at the reception. 

They didn’t have a special dress or special bouquet.  They really helped with a lot of the planning and made sure everything went smoothly on my wedding day.  It’s a position of honor, though it’s definitely not required. 

If you want to avoid any potential drama, I see no harm in saying that you can’t choose and they’re equally important to you.  You could also just say they’re *all* Maids of Honor to you 🙂
