I had a married bridesmaid, and still called her a bridesmaid.  Bridesmatron sounds weird (to me, at least!)  🙂

As I understand it, you are “matron of honor” if you are married and “maid of honor” if unmarried.

“Bridesmaid” regardless of whether married or not.

Call her what she’s comfy with! = ) My sis is married and we are calling her a maid of honor, not matron.

I think it’s still bridesmaid in todays’ society, but I have heard of a married maid of honor being called a matron of honor.

MAGENTA WHY ARE YOU YELLING?!?!?!

Okay, I’ve heard it both ways, but I agree with bridematron sounds weeeeeeird. I’d just call them bridesmaids- that’s how I’ve seen it done most of the time and never thought anything of it.

Haha, KM, I was wondering that too… I actually read it as yelling in my mind, too.
