When to use Maid Vs Matron of Honour

Maid of Honour Or Matron of Honour - Know the Difference?

Q. Maid of honour and Matron of Honour. Do you know the difference? What will you choose?

A. Your Maid/Matron of Honour is your head bridesmaid. Traditionally, Maid of Honour is the title given to a woman who is unmarried and Matron of Honour is the title given to a woman who is married.

Many people today generally give the title “Maid of Honour” even if the woman is married. There’s now a consensus the word “Matron” sounds far too old-fashioned.
