Confusion around roles of matron of honour, maid of honor and who can be a witness with the best man

I have a Maid of Honor who is unmarried and a Matron of Honor who is married. I want my Matron to be a witness along with the Best Man. Even though she is married, can I have her as the Maid instead?

Technically and traditionally, if the lady you are having as your Maid / Matron of honour is married, she is supposed to be referred to as "Matron of Honour".  However, not many couples I have experienced have really liked that term. 

Almost every couple I have worked with have chosen to just go with "Maid of Honour".

Which is fine.  There isn't any legal requirement to call them "Matron".

As far as who can be a witness, anyone of sound mind over the age of 18!

I hope this helps.
