    hi all sorry if this is in the wrong place but not too sure where to put it.

    Basically what is the difference between maid of honor and matron of honor?

    I want my closest cousin (she is like a sister to me) to be my maid of honor and my family are all up in arms as she is not married yet, but i thought maid of honor was unmarried and matron of honor was married. I am so confused

    So can i have a maid/matron of honor if they are not married? and which title would you give them if you were/are in my situation?

    i think a matron of honor is just a married maid of honor, that's what i was always told

    My sister is unmarried and will be my maid of honour.
    As I understood it maid was unmarried and matron married

    The tradition behind it though is that they have been through the process before so can support you with it all.

    Same here, just thought it was used for unmarried/married ladies.
