You know my old best friend wanted her mom to be her matron of honor and i was going to be the maid of honor.  However, her mom thought it was more of an honor for her to be the mother of the bride…not that she wasn’t appreciative to asked to stand up there with her.  What did your mother say about being up there with you?

I would think that she would be a “maid of honor” since she isn’t married

What about having your mom be “Lady of Honor” instead?

If you’re being traditional about it, then I vote for matron; maid implies never-married status. Maid, as in, “maiden.”

However, my two best friends are married and I still refer to them as “Maids of Honor.”

Hey, “Mother of Honor” sounds good to me!

 

That’s a good idea.

I think “mother of honor” sounds nice! 🙂

I think you should ask her which she prefers.

She’s not married so she can’t be a matron, regardless of her age. She will be your maid of honor.
