Maid and matron of honour is the same role,the first word simply denotes the marital status of the woman - maid = unmarried, matron = married. A chief bridesmaid is another name for MOH. You can have 2 MOH if you wish, or none

It might not be traditional but if it's what you want, do it. Don't let what is tradition make you pick between them or not pick either. Go with your heart.

I'm having my 2 daughters and my fianće's daughter as bridesmaids and feel it wouldn't be right to choose between them, so not having any.

My Sis is my MoH and my best mate is Chief Bridesmaid. Other than them I just have my future step-daughter as my little Flower Girl. The adult bridesmaids were both too special to not be given a title. :-)

I had 2 bridesmaids and wouldn't pick between them for maid of honour. Looking back I guess I actually had 2 maids of honour!

This is ridiculous. What else? Assistant chief bridesmaids?! Whats wrong with just being invited....

I have a MOH and Chief Bridesmaid, two bridesmaids and a flower girl! :) There are no set rules, if you would like to give people a special title just go for it!

I’m having my best mate as my man of honour and my sister as my chief bridesmaid. Personally don’t see the issue in having one, don’t get why people get all worked up about those who have chosen to have one

Me! Decided to make them both maids of honour even though one is married, as matron sounds awful!

Christina Adams

The people saying it's ridiculous and if you can't decide have none, don't be so rude, I'm having 2, it's up to the bride what she would like, nowadays anything goes!

Yeah have two husbands too sure it's a title reserved for one person traditionally, have two or three if you wish but it makes it meaningless

I had my cousin as my maid of honour and my future SIL as my matron of honour. Totally your call as to what you want to do!

I think you should have how many maids of honour, bridesmaids, best men, fathers or mothers to walk you up the aisle. It’s your day. Your memories don’t listen to what people might say. Do what you want on the big day !
