Hi guys! Is it weird to have a matron of honor as well as a maid of honor? Then four bridesmaid? The matron of honor would be the one standing right next to be but i wanted to see what you guys thought about this?

    No, lots of people have multiple MOHs.

    No, I have a maid of honor and a matron of honor with 6 bridesmaids and 2 Junior bridesmaids so it's completely up to you and what you are comfortable with.

    It’s not weird at all! I have both a maid (my sister) and a matron (my best friend) of honor. A friend of mine is in a wedding and she gave all her girls the title of “bestie of honor” lol you don’t have to follow all the “rules”-it’s your wedding!

    I think there should only be one matron or maid of honor but thats me ...its your day you get to decide but my opinion is only one all rest should be bridesmaids ..

    I think it's only weird if you have 3 people in your wedding party. Makes the one single bridesmaid fee left out. But you have plenty so I think its fine!

    That’s what I ended up with too. My cousin is maid of honor and my friend is matron, and I also have bridesmaids. So far everything has run smoothly. Both girls had never met before, but have jointly planned the bachelorette party for this weekend. For the day of the wedding I’ll probably split up duties. One is giving a speech at the wedding and the other at the rehearsal. Just think about how personalities work together and make sure everyone knows who’s responsible for what.

    I have one matron of honor (my sister), one maid of honor (my daughter), and one bridesmaid (my cousin). So, no I don't think it's weird at all!! Do whatever works for you!

    LOL!! This is the exact configuration of my bridal party!! My Matron of Honor (sister), maid of honor (daughter), and one bridesmaid (cousin).

    But my cousin is totally chill, and doesn't feel left out at all. In fact, the titles hardly matter in my case, because we are all super close, and these ladies are all going above and beyond to give me the premiere wedding planning experience!! I am so lucky to have them!

    Almost exactly the same lol! My matron of honor is my married sister, my maid of honor is my single sister, and future SIL is my bridesmaid! Personally I'm going to have my maid of honor next to me rather than my matron of honor, just because we are closer and I feel like she's going to be my right-hand man in this whole planning thing!

    I have both! My sister is my matron of honor and my best friend is my maid of honor I also felt that two people were required because my sister doesn't live in the country.

    I think it is more common that ladies are having multiple MOHs. I've seen it at numerous weddings. Not to mention mine will have a Matron and a Maid. So I think if that's what you want then do it!

    I have a maid and matron. I couldn't pick, and one was married which opened the door to honor both of them. I asked my matron later on after having initially only asking her to be a bridesmaid but she was very happy to be bumped up. I don't know if my maid of honor is jealous of the fact there's two honor titles now, but she hasn't voiced it to me one way or the other.
