So I’m finally getting around to *officially* asking my girls to be my bridesmaids. They all know they will be in my bridal party, but this is just the formal invitation to do so.
I’m making cards that say “will you be my ___” for each of my girls. Everyones will say “bridesmaid” except for my sister. She will be me main lady.
I know that a maid of honor is single, and a matron of honor is married. BUT. My sister and her husband literally JUST seperated last week. He has cheated many times and she is sick of being associated with him.
On my card, should I call her a maid or matron?
Thanks ladies 🙂
(for the wedding, I will ask her what she wants me to call her on the program… but for now these cards are a surprise, so I don’t want to ask her)

Hmm, that is a bit tricky. If it were me writing them, I’d just write ‘lady of honor’, ‘sister of honor’, or something that avoids it altogether.

Honor Attendant ( title to be determined later)

LeonardLady: I’d just put maid. A lot of people I know haven’t even used Matron for their married MOH’s as they saw it as a bit old hat.

I think I would just put “maid,” personally. My mother is my “matron” of honor technically because she is married, but I never call her that and she never calls herself that. I think “matron” would make her feel old. I doubt it will offend your sister if you put “maid,” especially considering her recent split. If you feel totally awkward about it, the ladies above me have some great ideas. Lady of Honor or Sister of Honor could totally work!
