Technically she would be your Matron of honor now

Are your sisters married? Married women are matron of honors.

She will be a Matron of Honor not a Maid of Honor if she’s married.

I think, technically, she’s a Matron now as she’s married. Did she just suddenly get married or did you know she’d be married at your wedding? Anyways, I think that having three “Matron of Honors” might look a bit weird. Not really an honor. KWIM?

Yup, if she’s married, then she’s a Matron of Honor.  It’s just a matter of wording, no big deal.

you would have 3 matrons of honor. (fyi: if you plan on putting matron of honor in your program or something, the plural is matrons of honor, not matron of honors)

she’d be called a matron of honor now that she’s married.  it’s no big deal, she’ll still do the same job, the wording is just a little different.

if she’s not married yet then she’s Maid of Honor. Only married women are Matrons of Honor

@suubchb: I’ve never heard married bridesmaids referred to as “bridesmatrons”- lol. I think you’re fine calling them BMs.
