I understand the differance, one is married and one isn’t.
Can I get away with having my sister (unmarried) be my matron of honor and my best friend (also unmarried) be my maid of honor?
basically I want to have them both be the Maid/Matron of Honor.. but wondered if anyone else has given the title matron of honor to someone who is unmarried?
I’m having a hard time deciding on having them both be a Maid/Matron of Honor. I need them both to be and I feel like I would feel much better if one was matron and one was maid.

I’m not engaged yet… but i have 3 extremely close friends. I was maid of honor in 2 of their weddings & the other isnt married yet. I plan on having 2 matron’s of honor and a maid of honor. Why not make them all special??
That being said, just make them both maid’s of honor! they’ll both have important roles. It’s ok if its the same title!

I agree to just make them both maids. It’s okay to have more than one in that honor role! 🙂

@ksodergren: They would both be “Maid of Honor.” Matron would only be appropriate if one of them were married (which you already know). I don’t really understand why you feel they need to have different titles? They’d just be co-Maids of Honor.

They would both be Maids of Honor, unless one of them pulls a Brittney Spears before the wedding!

I have two matrons of honor. I think you can call them both maids and it’ll be fine.

I agree that they should both be maids of honor.
My matron of honor (who IS married) isn’t even a fan of the title she said it makes her feel old. LOL. Also, I went to a wedding where the sister (and only bridesmaid) was listed as matron of honor – she was single. Everyone pointed out the mistake on the programs. A lot of people might assume you made a mistake or didn’t know better. It’s silly and sure people shouldn’t be so judgmental but better to stick with the “correct” titles.

since all are unmarried, they would all be Maids of Honor

@ksodergren: Just have two Maids of Honor, I see plenty of Bees that do it because they don’t want to decide on just one. The title only changes if the woman is married (and in some circles, if she has children.)

I am having two maids of honor. One is married and I asked her if she wanted to be “matron” or “maid”‘ and she hated the matron idea. You can do whatever you want!

Why don’t you just have two maid of honors? I’m having my sister (married) be my matron of honor and my cousin (unmarried) as my maid of honor.

@Ms_Purple: My married sister is my Maid/Matron of Honor, and she hates that she’s the Matron of Honor for the same reason!

My sister and I were both maids of honor for my other sister’s wedding. I’d just do two maids!
