I am trying to figure out how to make my Maid/Matron of Honor and his Bridesmaid or Best Man different. She can’t wear a different dress color because the dress they will be wearing doens’t come in a color that would match the wedding. I might buy her different colored shoes to go with her black high-low dress… but not sure how that would work out or if there is a better idea. And for him, I am lost. No idea.
What did/will you do to make them stand out more? Pictures too!

For a maid of honor you could try giving her a brooch or different sash. When my friend got married she gave her maid of honor a different bouquet. All the bridesmaids carried red roses, as the bride she had white roses, and her sister who was the maid of honor had both red and white.
For the best man again you could give him a slightly different boutonniere from the other groomsmen.

@Cotton: I really like your ideas!
@kfricke89: I think that adding a brooch to MOHs dress (especially since they’re black) and having the different bouquet would look really nice. Just different enough to stand out without it being over the top obvious. For the groomsmen, maybe a tie that is the same color as the other GMs ties but with a pattern?

I don’t think a brooch would go along with this dress. It is actually strapless. She is just wearing a regular bra. And I was goingto do the sash thing until I found this dress and I just can’t cover up that detail! I like the idea of a different style bout on the Bridesmaid or Best Man though.

I am doing and have seen done the different bouquet for the Maid/Matron of Honor…bigger, different color or wrap around the stems. Also if you’re gifting them with jewlery, get the Maid/Matron of Honor a different necklace.
As for the Bridesmaid or Best Man, you could do a slightly different look i.e. groom has white vest, white tie and groomsmen have black vest, black tie so the Bridesmaid or Best Man gets a black vest and white tie.
