Hello, I am going to ask my three best friends to be my bridesmaids however I feel like I don't want just one of them to be the maid of honour as they will all contribute differently and I am so close to each of them. Has anyone not had a maid of honour or felt this way?

I think Maid of Honour is a new thing as they used to all be bridesmaids unless married when they were Matron of Honour. Personally I don't see problem with them all being bridesmaids.

Hi you don't have to have a maid of honour :)

I'm not having a maid of honour because I couldn't choose between my best friends so they're all bridesmaids :)

Im having a maid of honour, but i felt it was appropriate as she is married & also a bit older than me. Other wise I would have just had all bridesmaids! :) xx

My sister in law didn't have a maid of honour when she got married - as someone else said, it's a pretty new thing anyway. Good luck :-)

I'd keep them all as bridesmaids then if that's how you feel :)
