Is it tacky to have two maids of honor? I have two best friends and don’t want to pick one over the other. I could take the easy way out and make a family member maid of honor but I know my best friends would take on the duties of maid honor by default and because they’re awesome. Has anyone ever seen it before?
I had two maids of honors, and they worked perfectly together, and one balanced the other. In my circle of friends is actually really common to have two, or a maid and matron. My husband had two best men, so as far as pairing up, that worked out too!
My youngest daughter has both her older sisters as her co-MOH's.
It's perfectly fine to have two maids of honor. Another option would be to not designate anyone as a maid of honor and just have all of the people in your wedding party be bridespeople (bridesmaids or bridesmen).
I’ve seen it. One of my besties had her cousin & childhood BFF be her maids of honor & it was very fitting. She made a different but food choice for herself. Who says there has to be only one? It could be 1,2,3, or none for that matter.
Why would it be tacky to have two? I actually think it would be tacky to pick one over the other, or to pick a family member knowing your two friends will do the MOH duties. Just have two, it’s totally fine! The only tricky part is deciding who will stand right next to you during the ceremony. FH has two co-best men and he had them chose a number and the one who was closest gets to stand next to him and the other ones gets to sign our marriage license as a witness.
Following this but I was recently thinking of doing the same. I want my best friend from FL to be my MOH but the wedding is NH so she won't be able to physically help much with planning. My best friend from NH where I grew up would be able to physically be there so I want her to be my MOH as well.
I did it, I have a Maid and a Matron of Honor who happen to be sisters (with each other, not me). I couldn't decide, we're equally close. Recently, turns out my Matron OH is pregnant and due the week before the wedding on the other side of the country. I am THRILLED for her, but also really glad I had both of them as I won't be without a MOH.
I was going to have 2. But 1 is getting married before me so she is now matron of honor and the other maid of honor. There was no way I could choose between the 2 and they both know that. They are both friends as well so it's a good fit!! I say go for it.
