If she is married, it's maid of honor, if not, it's chief bridesmaid

Married, matron of honour. Not married maid of honour. Personally I think it sets them aside more, but really upto you x

It’s definitely matron of honour if they’re married and maid if they’re not. The role is much more than chief bridesmaid traditionally.

My aunt is in her 50s and married, still calling her maid of honour 🙂 best friend (married in 30s) is chief bridesmaid and step daughter is bridesmaid. Hope that helps?

They're both the same. However, if your maid/chief is married it should be matron.

Chief brides maid if they are single.
Maid of honour if married.
That's the way its always been

Traditionally, Chief bridesmaid is an English custom, maid of honour is an American custom. It’s maid of honour if they are unmarried, matron of honour if they are married. It all depends on your personal preference though tbh.

Maid of honour is an American term, chief bridesmaid is the British one. I went with chief bridesmaid. Technically if they're already married it's matron of honour rather than maid but have whatever you like the sound of x

If she is married then its matron of honour. If she isnt married its usually maid of honour. I prefer it to chief bridesmaid as it sounds more important as she is a big part of the wedding and helps a lot x
