I have a Maid of Honor and a Matron of Honor. My FH is having two Best Men as well; one of which is married, the other is not. Do they have different names like the ladies do?

    Maid of Honor is used for un-married women, and Matron of Honor is used for married women. For example, say you have 2 MOHs and they are both married, then they would both be titled Matron of Honor. OR you have one married and one not, then the married one would be titled Matron of Honor and the unmarried one would be titled Maid of Honor. Also, say you have 2 MOHs and they are both unmarried, then they would both be titled Maid of Honor.

    EDIT: Just fully understood your question, lol, no the men do not have different names. They are both "Best Man."

    Hi there! All the PPs are corrected. A married best man is also given the title best man

    How many total bridesmaids and groomsmen are there?

    I was hoping there was a different name for the men.

    We have 2 MOH and 2 BM along with 3 bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen.

    I don't think they do, but I think it's okay to have 2 BM.
