Maid and Matron of honor....Can I have both?

Hi Ladies-

I am very close to my sister (not married) and best friend (married). Can I have a maid of honor and matron of honor? I just don't feel like I can pick one or the other. What do you think?

    It is your wedding and therefore you can do whatever you want! Sometimes girls get caught up in what they "should or shouldnt" do but this is you and your FIs day so yes do what you want.

    I have two maids of honor and Joe has two best men. We also have 6 people on my side and 7 on his. My side is all girls but his side is 6 guys and one girl - we decided to have his sister stand up for him because they are so close - it really wouldn't have made sense to us to have her on my side.

    I have a Maid of Honor, Matron of Honor, and a Bridesmaid. My FI has 3 Groomsmen. You can have as many or a little as you want! It's your wedding!

    Agreed, you can both! I've been to several weddings with both a matron of honor and maid of honor, generally a friend and sister combo.

    Agreed.  My sister is my maid of honor and my best friend is my matron of honor.  They live in different cities so it is nice to have two hands to help with things!

    To me, titles are just titles. I have a Brother of Honor and two Maids of Honor. FI has the standard one Best Man and two GMs. Do whatever the heck you want, says I!

    I say do it.. it's your wedding.. do it YOUR way.  We are doing a few things out of the norm for our wedding but that's what makes it YOURS.

    I'm so envious of the girl who is having her future sister in law and her fiance's side.  I have her on mine and it makes no sense.
