There really is nothing wrong with 'Matron of Honor' and only means the person is married and not single. If single it would be 'Maid of Honor'. I do agree it sound like one is an old maid, but that's the way it is and I doubt you can break the good old tradition.

What is the masculine of matron?

In English there are no masculine or feminine forms. English uses gender specific nouns for male or female.The noun 'matron' has different meanings:a married woman or a widow of mature age, and established social position. A corresponding mature man who has an established a social position is known by the feature of his life that has lead to his position, for example industrialist, philanthropist, educator, entertainer, etc. In the context of 'maid of honor' or 'matron of honor', positions held in a wedding party, the corresponding position for a male has no age or marital status attached to it, a male is the 'best man'.A woman who acts as a supervisor or monitor in a public institution, such as a school, hospital, or prison. A corresponding term for a male in charge of an institution is more specific, for example headmaster, administrator, warden, etc.a female nurse whose job is to take care of students in a school. There is no corresponding noun specific to a male in this position.As society changes, words like matron are giving way to common gender nouns that apply to a male or a female; a woman who has established a social position today is more commonly known by the means that led to that position; a woman who supervises an institution will be known by the title appropriate for that institution.
