Eek, I am not sure, you could just somehow list her as Mrs. Sarah Smith rather than Matron of Honor Sarah Smith

Honestly unless you’re going super formal, no one will call you on it if you just say Maid. Unless your aunt’s emily post and your neighbor is miss manners.

I’m having 2 maids of honor, one is actually a matron of honor so I like that they’ll have different titles. If neither of you like Matron I would just use Maid… I mean when a bridesmaid’s married are you really supposed to call her a bridesmatron? That just sounds silly and I’ve never heard anyone complain about married women being bridesMAIDS. You could call her a woman of honor, an honor attendant, or lady of honor anything along those lines I think would work!

My Maid/Matron of Honor is married and I never referred to her as anything other than “maid of honor”. Well, that’s not true, in Spanish I called her “madrina”. But yeah, I don’t think you have to call her “matron” just because she’s married.

I asked mine what they’d like to be called, and they considered “hag” before deciding on “wench.” I might just put that in the program. Matron is terrible, though. That word should be banished in reference to anyone born after 1914.

Lady of Honor? Kind of a call-back to the lady-in-waiting thing, which is where much of this stemmed from, I think.

What about Honor Attendent? I’m having 3–Matron and 2 maids–and I may use that title instead.

Our Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man are total roits and very good friends.  We are referring to them as Best Woman and Man of Honor.  🙂  I’m in total agreement with you on your distaste for Matron!
