All of the girls purchased the same dress. I want to find a nice way of making my Maid/Matron of Honor stand out, but nothing too extravagant, as the entire wedding is low key as it is. Unless I can find some nice, decently priced flowers, I won’t have any. Any ideas?
This a picture of one of the other BMs wearing the dress. I love the dress, but I’m just confused. Help?

My Maid/Matron of Honor asked if she could wear a tiara to stand out…I’m not sure if she was entirely joking. She seemed a little peeved that everyone is wearing the same dress so I told her I would get the other ladies matching jewlery and get her something different. “Bling her up” haha

Btw, that dress is super cute!

Give you an example of my idea of bling, this is what I picked for the bms. Maid/Matron of Honor is similar but one circle with a cubic filling the center

@tiffanyscanlan: I don’t really have much yet in the way of making her stand out…but as for cheap flowers, there are some online sources where you can order bulk flowers…if you or any of your maids are at all crafty, simple, elegant bouquets shouldn’t be hard to do. I am ordering bulk red and white roses through costco…and then the day before the wedding, the bridesmaids brunch will be followed a bouquet making party. The bridesmaids boquets will be 1 dozen white roses, my bouquet will be either half red and half white, or all red (TBD) and Maid/Matron of Honor will have the Dozen white plus 3-6 red depends on how it all looks. My Maid/Matron of Honor is also wearing a slightly different dress than the rest of the girls. Still long black chiffon, but her bodice is much different.

@tiffanyscanlan: Different colour bouquet. Flowers for her hair. Different coloured sash (black might be nice – silver would work but might wash – gold if the wedding colours allow it).
OH! Different colour shoes from the rest. YES. That. Shoes that pop. That’s the way. I’ve decided.

I love it. I love when the maid of Honor stands out. Lucky for me though mine was the only one with short hair, so she stood out naturally. So, what I did as added to her gift for being a part of my wedding, was pay for her makeup to be done professionally. She looks so pretty!!
