So when I get married, my best friend, whom I want to be my maid of honor, will be married. I want her to be the one beside me, not have a maid of honor and have her be my matron of honor. Is it okay to just call her a maid of honor, even though she will technically be a matron of honor????

i dont get the issue, shes married and shes the one standing to the left of you – thats a matron on honor
dont get too twisted over titles

Most wedding parties don’t have a maid of honor and matron of honor. You have one ____ of honor and use the appropriate title. I would call her matron of honor to be respectful, she is married and has “earned” that title. That being said she would do all the same things as a “maid of honor” and stand in the same place.

they are the same thing, just one is married and one is not. like calling someone mrs or miss.

A “matron of honor” is not a lesser title than “maid of honor” – the only difference is that “matron” means the person is married… so I would just go ahead and call her your matron of honor.

Maid of Honour (MOH) and Matron of Honour (MOH) are indeed one-in-the-same, and a Bride typically has just one Bridesmaid that she gives this “top billing” to… your “left hand” gal
The difference in title, purely is to indicate whether the woman is Single or Married.

Your best friend can still stand right beside you as Matron of Honor. The difference in title just indicates her relationship status. When my best friend gets married, I’ll still be right next to her as the Matron of Honor, as I’m already married.

I’ve never known the term matron of honor. I’ve only known maid of honor (married) and maiden of honor (not married).

A maid of honor is unmarried; a matron of honor is married. This is because a maid is a woman who is not married…

They’re the same thing, other than one is married (matron) and one is not (maid). It’s not a lesser title to be a matron of honor.

Okay I was just wondering because two weddings that I have been to have had both a matron of honor and a maid of honor, with the matron of honor standing between the maid of honor and a bridesmaid. It almost seemed like she had a lesser title and significance.

For example, one of her “bridesmaids” was married and she was called the matron of honor, rather than just a bridesmaid.

I bet she had *two* _____ of honor and one of them happened to be married.
it’s redundant though. it’s like when you ask people what their *FAVORITE* something is and they name more than one. *FAVORITE* mean the most or best. So that’s the ONE position of maid/matron of honor.
I think *technically* if one of your *bridesmaids* is married, they should *technically* be called a *bridesmatron*…. because you CAN’T be a maid if you are married. If you are talking about old english tradition. It wouldn’t change the significance of what they do or what they mean to you.
*Maids of court* – were who helped the *Queen* get ready for her appearances.

My matron of honor calls herself the maid of honor. She thinks matron sounds old lol.
