So, if you’re greek you know what a “Koumbara” is. You can have 1 or how many you want. I have two. One is my age and is also considered my Maid of Honor and the other is over 50 and considered Matron of Honor. I think it’s weird to have the Matron of Honor, who is over 50, in the same bridesmaids dress as my younger Maid of Honor and the bridesmaids. I’ve asked her to find a dress that compliments the bridemaids dresses so she looks like she is part of the wedding party but isnt wearing a tight fitted strapless dress. I feel like I should take someones comfort zone into consideration. The younger maid of honor thinks the older matron of honor should wear the same dress as her, and has maybe hinted at just wearing another kind of dress like the older matron of honor. My mom says the older matron of honor should be in the bridemaids dress. My sister agree’s with me and says that she should not have to wear a bridesmaids dress. I’m competely torn. HELP!

@Lepidoptera: The young koumbara is probably upset that it is taking the spotlight off of her, so people will not recognize that she is also koumbara. The thing is if you make the one exception, you should make it for the young one too because the young one is also sharing the expense of koumbarois duties and most likely wants to be recognized. Now if one koumbara is from your side, and the other one is from your husbands side it won’t really matter because one will be standing next to you, and the other next to your husband. Otherwise next course of action- find a style dress for the older koumbara to wear, and show the young one. Tell her if she wants to wear that she can choose it or the bridesmaids dress. Good luck!!

I ended up putting everyone in the same dress and style. Too much drama over a dress and the older koumbara wanted to get a dress more blinged out than my moms. Ridiculous! lol I will be putting my koumbari in a sash or a crystal design along side the dress. It’s a tight mermaid dress. They will also have bigger bouquets than the bridesmaids but the same as the Maid/Matron of Honor.
