@ForeverAndEverAfter:  It’s relatively a moot point.  It doesn’t matter and has no bearing on the wedding…however, if I had to choose, I’d say maid of honour because while she is technically married she is no longer in that relationship.

Ugh just call her your maid of honor.  Matron of honor makes her sound like…Mrs. Hughes.  NO OFFENSE TO MRS. HUGHES.  LOVE YOU MRS. HUGHES!!!!!

Yes you can have both a maid and matron of honor.

I would go with maid of honor.  It just sounds better, and no need to call extra attention to her marriage right now.

@ForeverAndEverAfter:  Maid of honor is probably preferred. You should ask her what she would prefer to be called, in that regard. And yes, it’s possible to have 2 maids/matrons of honor. If you want to have 15 maids of honor, a bridesmaid, and a monkey for a ring-bearer, go for it. It’s your wedding! 🙂

Ask her! Since either is ok: ask her what she’d prefer to be called.

If you have 2, you can have a maid + a matron of honor, or 2 maids of honor, or 2 matrons of honor – it doesn’t matter.

Ask her what she’d prefer.
