I have my best friend who has never been apart of a wedding and then I have a new close friend who has been apart of weddings and is dating Jacob’s best friend. I wanted to have both of them be maids of honor because I think both balance each other out. Has anyone had two maids of honor?
I have 2 right now. One is my cousin who is like a sister and lives on the west coast when I’m in Connecticut. The other is a childhood best friend where our mothers and grandmothers were friends for generations.
I have co MOH - my sister who was promised since we were teens and my best friend. I added my best friend for a number of reasons and I’m super happy to have them both cos they do balance each other out. My sister doesn’t really like my fiancé, didn’t want me to have his sisters as bridesmaids and has decided she’s planning the bachelorette without any input from me- my friend is the opposite so I will enjoy my wedding a lot more with her there to balance decision making. Lesson learned: DONT go into MOH pacts!
I have two! One is my sister and the other my best friend since middle school. I was/will be co-moh for both their weddings as well actually so it works out well! I have 5 maids total so the other 3 are my future in sisters in law
2 maids of honour is fine, but I would wait until 6 months prior to the wedding to ask anyone. There are so many posts with people regretting earlier choices. Nothing has to be done until 6 months before when they need to look at attire for the day.
I had a matron and maid of honor at my first wedding and it was great. I don't think there's anything wrong with having two maids of honor. I know some (immature) people get jealous when someone has more than one best friend. That's the only time I think it would cause an issue.

Lol I have 3 very close best friends who have all been in my life since before grade school! Too hard to pick one as I love them all equally. Having all 3 be my “bridesmaids of honor”.
