I have a question regarding the Maid of Honor vs. Matron of Honor. I have 2 girls who I want to be my Maid/Matron of Honor.
Person #1: She is my fiance’s cousin and we are very close and she has been so helpful with planning and taking initiative on everything so I really want her to be my Matron of Honor since she is married.
Person #2: She is my best friend for 15 years and I want her to be standing up as a Maid/Matron of Honor as well. She is also engaged and is getting married 2 months before me.
So my question is would Person #2 technically be my Maid of Honor during the whole process? Since she wouldn’t be married until 2 months before my wedding. I am just curious because when I plan to ask my girls I am not sure which term I would use for her. Thanks for the help!

@diamond101987: They would both be Matron of Honor if they are married before your wedding date. The term is really only applicable on the wedding day isn’t it? If person #2 WANTS to be referred to as Maid of Honor though I don’t think it’s a big deal.

If you pick both women to be your Maid/Matron of Honor you will end up with two matrons.

The title refers to their marital status at the time of the wedding. So unless your friend cancels her wedding – you’ll have two matrons. Which is fine!

@diamond101987: you’ll have 2 matrons – nothing wrong with that!

Okay – so when I ask them to be my MOH’s I plan to do it in a cute way.. so I would ask Person #2 to by my Matron of Honor at that time (even though she wouldn’t be married yet)?
