Brides can Choose to Have More than One Maid of Honor
A bride may want to pick more than one person to be the Maid of Honor at her wedding. In the past, this may have been frowned upon, but nowadays it is perfectly acceptable for a bride to choose more than one person.
Why have Multiple Maids of Honor?
There are many reasons why a bride may want to have more than one person as her Maid of Honor. Sometimes she may have a hard time choosing between two very close friends. Sometimes the bride will have a best friend but also a very close sister, both of whom she would like to honor with the position. Whatever the reason, the choices for the bridesmaids and maid of honor are the decision of the bride, chosen by her to aid in the wedding preparations and celebration, and the numbers of each are up to her and the groom to decide on together.
If the bride does want to have more than one maid of honor, it is important for her to make the roles of each person clear to prevent confusion. The last thing any bride wants is to cause tension between her very close friends, especially during her wedding preparations. Since the role is usually meant for one person, the responsibilities can be divided up between them. Alternatively, the two maids of honor can collaborate between themselves to decide how to aid the bride, although it is best if the bride is involved somewhat with the role decisions, since she is the person who will be affected by the decisions.
