I was talking to my Mother today about who to have as my MOH. My cousin is one idea. She is a few years younger then I am, and we grew up together as sisters. Or my best friend who lives states away and I have not seen in a while, but she is my best friend.

My Mothers thoughts were that one is married, one is not. Have one Maid of Honor and one Matron of Honor.

Is this a normal idea?

mainemomof2, I am doing that! My sister is 13 years older than me and married and my niece (her daughter) is 8 years younger than me and not married. My sister is, well she''s my sister, and we are very close so I definately want her to by my matron of honor. Since I was only 8 when my niece was born we spent all our time together and we grew up like sisters so I want her as my maid of honor.

As for who will stand next to me, that''s a toss up. I will let the two of them decide how they want to work it and if they can''t decide then I will. Whichever one doesn''t stand next to me can do something else special during the course of the wedding. I don''t think its a big deal.

I think you should do whatever you want to do! If you want to have them both, then do it, its your day!

I''m having 2 maids of honor: my 16-year-old sister and my best friend. I hadn''t thought about who will stand next to me.

I''ve definitely heard of it being done. I haven''t seen it though in my own experiences.

For those of you that are planning on having a maid of honor and a matron of honor or 2 of one...
How are you handling the best man, groomsmen?

Thank you!

My best friend was my matron of honor and my sister was my maid of honor. It''s up to you on who stands next to you. My husband actually had two best men and he chose who would stand next to him. I loved it!

FI is having 2 bestmen also. He has 2 guys that he''s been best friends with for years, so it worked out perfectly.

Perfect,
Did any of you have additional bridesmaids or just the two?

SInce one is married and one is not, I think that is an awesome idea...no one feels hurt then!

This thread is helpful to me, too


I think I''m going to be in a similar situation, and like the idea of asking my two closest friends. What if both are married, though? Just have 2 MOHs (I wouldn''t have anyone else stand up for me)? I''ll let them figure out who stands next to me
