Hmm, that is a bit tricky. If it were me writing them, I’d just write ‘lady of honor’, ‘sister of honor’, or something that avoids it altogether.

LeonardLady:  I’d just put maid. A lot of people I know haven’t even used Matron for their married MOH’s as they saw it as a bit old hat.

I think I would just put “maid,” personally. My mother is my “matron” of honor technically because she is married, but I never call her that and she never calls herself that. I think “matron” would make her feel old. I doubt it will offend your sister if you put “maid,” especially considering her recent split. If you feel totally awkward about it, the ladies above me have some great ideas. Lady of Honor or Sister of Honor could totally work!
