5 Reasons Why Two Maids of Honor Are Better Than One
By Lindsey Sachs
Tradition may suggest assigning one Maid or Matron of Honor, but guess what? Tradition is meant only to be a guide and shouldn’t discourage you from thinking creatively about every aspect of your wedding including how many Maids of Honor to have.
It’s common and completely acceptable to select two Maids of Honor as a way to honor your closest friendships. Two Maids of Honor is most common when a bride has only two bridesmaids, has two sisters, or, a sister and a best friend who carry equal weight in her life.
When deciding if two Maids of Honor is right for your wedding, don’t feel obligated to give the Maid of Honor title, but instead, consider the depth of your friendship and what your gut feels is right. If two seems perfect for you - don’t hesitate! Unmarried bridesmaids should be given the title Maid of Honor, whereas married bridesmaids should be titled Matron of Honor.
