Can a married person be a maid of honor?
Simply so, what do you call a bridesmaid who is already married?
It's then logical that the young women attending a bride on her wedding day are called bridesmaids. Traditionally, they were chosen from unwed young women of marriageable age. But what if they are already married? Interestingly, when a maid of honor is married, she's called a matron of honor instead.
Keeping this in consideration, who goes first maid or matron of honor?
The bridesmaids begin their walk first, either one at a time or in pairs but the maid and matron of honor walk alone. If including both in your ceremony, the matron of honor walks the aisle first followed by the maid of honor, who stands closest to the bride during the ceremony.
Help plan and pay for the bridal shower and bachelorette party. The maid (or matron) of honor is in charge of the parties, but bridesmaids are expected to have ideas, give feedback, help decorate, chip in cash, and assist with the hostess duties. If you're on a limited budget, be up front about it.
