"Then I could just dedicate certain jobs to different bridesmaids" Uh, be careful with this. It sounds a bit regal. The only thing these people signed on for when they agreed to do this is buy a dress and show up for the wedding. Everything else is at their discretion, not yours. If you're talking about things like signing the marriage certificate or making a toast at the reception, that's a little different. But I hope you don't have a laundry list of "jobs" they're expected to perform. And yes it's fine to have no MOH if you can't decide, but I've never seen a bride yet in real life who didn't pick one.

No, you do not Normally the only real difference between MOH and bridesmaids is during the ceremony, the MOH stands next to the bride, take her bouquet when needed, fix the dress if needed and sign the marriage license. IF you pick someone or not, one of the bridesmaid still have to sign. You may need to have someone hold the bouquet during the rings. You could always put it down. What do you think is the difference between bridesmaid and MOH? Real difference is during the ceremony they help the bride and sign the license. I know people think MOH is more special. I had my sister, but I only have one.

Why does everyone seem to think that their bridesmaids are their indentured servants? I would never dream of dictating "jobs" to my bridesmaids. It's MY wedding, I'll do the work. If anyone volunteers and wants to help then great. But my bridal party are my closest and most special people who I picked because I love them and want them by my side at my wedding. Not because I need cheap labor. To answer your question, no, you do not need a MOH. You probably just think that position means, "the head servant" or something anyway.
