How about just bride’s honor attendants?  That’s still what they are, it’s just not specifying if they’re a maid or matron…  If you want things to "match" your best man could be listed as groom’s honor attendant.  It’s not necessarily fun, but it gets the job done πŸ™‚

Can you just call them both your "maid of honor"?  My "Best Man" was my best man regardless of whether or not he was married… so seems only fair that the maid of honor shouldn’t have to incorporate their marital status into their name.

According to thesaurus, another word for matron is "Dame". Dames of honor? Sounds very gangster film to me. πŸ™‚ Maiden? Confidante?

 Honorable Confidante?

It just seems unfair that a Best Man can have kids and still use the same title… but a Maid of Honor has kids, and her maidenhood goes out the window!

Haha, maybe I am too much of a feminist about all this.  Curious to see what other people have to say!

Yeah, I never understood the whole "Matron" vs "Maid" thing. Seems very insulting! Which is why I call my MOH a MATRON. It pisses her off! It’s like the Best Man is always the best, while an honor attendant can turn into a round bosomy hag after marriage. Hag was another word for matron. Damn you, thesaurus!

 

ETA: How about Best Gals?

Best Women?  Best Ladies?   Kind of "goes" better with Best Man, anyway

I like "Best Women" — Wish I’d thought of that.  My MOH was technically a "Matron" and didn’t object, but I HATE the word.  No offense to anyone, I just don’t like the sound…kind of when you don’t like a food ’cause it feels weird in your mouth, not ’cause of the actual taste.

I referred to her in conversation as my "Maid" of Honor and therefore most people did too…that was how I asked she be introduced at the reception.  On the program, b/c I had to put something, and thought people might find it funny that a pregnant, married woman was walking down the aisle and listed as "maid" on the program, I put "Honor Attendants" above her name and that of the Best Man. (Also, that took up less space than MOH and BM spelled out…another factor.)

Just thought of something: What have people called married bridesmaids?  (Mine were…like the MOH, we still said "maids.") I’ve never heard of a "bridesmatron…"  All my girls were married, and either had a kid or was pregnant.
