Guidelines about the roles and responsibilities of everyone involved, from maid of honor on down.By: Diane Forden, Editor-in-Chief
Q: Would a divorced woman still be considered a matron of honor, or a maid of honor—or shouldn't she serve in that role?
A: Traditionally, the matron of honor is a married woman and the maid of honor a single woman. So, a divorced woman is really "single" and should be a maid of honor. (It's OK to have two maids of honor, by the way.) But on a personal note, I'm not really a stickler for such hard and fast rules. I think it's fine to have a divorced woman as your matron of honor if that's what you wish. After all, there are weddings today where the "maid of honor" is a guy and the "best man" a woman, so do what you feel most comfortable with and enjoy your day!
