I want to ask my friend to be my Maid/Matron of Honor. She will be getting married in October so when I send out an invite asking her should I say “Will you be my Maid of Honor?” or “Matron of Honor” since she will be married when my wedding comes around? Which is correct?

I think I would say matron since she will already be married by the time it’s your wedding. I think either one is fine though.

Matron since she will be married

Ugh I HATE the word matron. It sounds so…matronly. As a 25 year old I would NEVER want to be called a matron…in fact my mother was a “matron” of honor at 50 and was VERY pissed that her friend labelled her that way in the programs, as she is not old and matronly. I know it’s the correct term, but it’s a horrible horrible term. Ask your friend her opinion before posting her title in a program or on a website or anything. Because I know I would cringe if I saw my name next to “matron”
Also according to Wiki “Matron is the job title of a very senior nurse in several countries”…blech! no thank you!
