Maid of Honor: Choosing Among Many Sisters?

Q:

I'm the last sister in my family to get married. If I choose one of my sisters to be my matron of honor, I have two to choose from who have never been chosen before. I'd hate to leave one out of the wedding. One is closest to my age and the other is my godmother (there are seven girls in the family). How should I handle this?

A:

That's a lot of sisters! How about you have two matrons of honor? Just split the duties between them. That way everybody in the family will have had the opportunity to play honor attendant.

Do You Have to Have a Maid of Honor?

I have three women in mind to ask to be my bridesmaids, but I'm unsure about whether I want to ask any of them to be my maid of honor, or whether I even want one to begin with. Do you have to have a maid of honor?
