So, I’m Russian Orthodox rather than Greek, but I like your idea of having her wear a similar dress in a slightly different color. Or, wearing a different style dress in the same color. Having her carry a bouquet would be really nice and just giving her the chance to stand out as someone special.

Hi! i’m Greek Orthodox.

I agree with 2PeasinaPod- Its nice to have the koumbara wear a different dress, but one with either the same color or style as the bridesmaids, so it all looks cohesive somehow.

My koumbara is going to wear a different dress. But we are not having a Maid/Matron of Honor or Best Man. At my sister’s wedding, her koumbara wore a similar shade but different style:

From what I remember, when i’ve gone to Greek weddings in Greece, the koumbaro and koumbara never really matched the wedding colors so they really stood out but at the same time, they don’t really have bridesmaids and groomsmen so they will stand out anyways.
