Choosing and managing your bridesmaids, maid or maids of honor, groomsmen, flower girl and other wedding attendants can be a stressful part of planning the big day. That's why our etiquette experts are here to answer your toughest wedding party questions.

Is it all right to have two maids of honor?

Of course! It's your party, and you can have as many maids of honor as you want. But you'll want to set your dynamic duo off in a special way. You might have them wear slightly different dresses from the rest of your bevy of bridesmaids. This could mean a different color, different style or the same color and style with a shorter or longer hem line. Or simply have the two of them march down the aisle together—this way there's no mistaking that they both hold the top slot in the wedding party. If you're having a bridal-party dance at the reception, instruct the best man to take a turn around the dance floor with both girls (separately, of course). Finally, ask your two main maids to give a joint speech at the reception. And don't forget to give your photographer the heads up on this great photo op.
