I’ve never heard of a bridesmatron.  I don’t like the term matron anyway. . .  it sounds like an old lady.  Just because you’re married, you’re not old. I dunno, maybe I’m crazy.

I’ve never heard of a bridesmatron, but my married sister specifically requested NOT to be identified as the matron of honor for the same reasons MissMelissaB pointed out.

I usually hear "Maid of Honor" and not matron of honor. I think Maid of honor sounds a lot better.

I didn’t know about Matron of honor until recently, so I definitly haven’t heard the other one. My sister has also asked not to be referred to as a Matron of Honor for the same reasons.

I have never heard of bridesmatron, but I’ll have a maid of honor and a matron of honor for our wedding since I couldn’t just pick one!

I’ve never heard bridesmatron.  Two of my Bridesmaid or Best Man were married, but I called them Bridesmaids in the program.  I think I’ve only heard of Matron of Honor when the Maid/Matron of Honor is married.

No such term… matron was supposed to be a respect thing (since the married maid was (assuming, of course) older than the unmarried ones).  I think it’s sweet that your friend wanted your opinion on how to be addressed ๐Ÿ™‚

We have a maid of honor and a dude of honor.  I’m pretty sure the DOH does not want to be addressed as "matron."

I have a Maid of Honor, a Maid of Dishonor, a Maid of Crisis Control and a Maid of DIY Projects. They are all getting special name tags and gifts with their titles. ๐Ÿ™‚

I had a question about interchanging the titles of maid of honor and matron of honor because you can find so much more things for a maid than matron.  I was surprised at how many people said they’d prefer to be called a maid than matron regardless if they were married because Matron sounded so old. So, I definitely don’t think your friend has to worry. I’d say it is whatever you prefer.  ๐Ÿ™‚

@Grumpybear722 – I got her some LAMB perfume, a bottle of "Bitch" wine (if you haven’t had it, I highly recommend. It is a bold, delicious Grenache. And the label and title say it all) and a piece of vintage jewelry. I also got her a tote bag on which I had each of their  nicknames printed, along with the chorus to our favorite songs. I’m kinda loving the personalized touches. It feels like we all belong to a secret girls club now! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here it is, it is DELICIOUS. My Fiance is a wine buyer and I made him order a case of it as gifts for bridal attendants.
