So one of my bridesmaids mistakenly ordered the same dress as my Maid/Matron of Honor. I sent her a picture of the dress and specifically asked all of the BM’s to order different dresses. I’m trying to let it go and not make a big deal about it though. I was wondering how you made your Maid/Matron of Honor stand out from the other bridesmaids (besides the dress style /color of the dress)? I was thinking of ordereing her a flower pin for her dress to maybe make the 2 dresses look a little different and set her apart from the others. Any other ideas?

Different colored sash?
Or just add a sash if you don’t have one for the rest of them?
I’ve seen it at a few weddings I’ve been to and I got the idea right away.
My Maid/Matron of Honor is my sister, she will stand out because we look like twins (we’re not) hahaha
And also, she’ll make a speech, soo… more standing out.
I picked a kind of Bridesmaid or Best Man dress (a LBD) specifically so they would blend in at the reception.

@Beachy0404: In your situation i would think a sash or bigger bouquet or statement jewelry versus plain jewelry for the rest.
My Maid/Matron of Honor has a different color dress than the rest, so that’s how I personally did it!

BMs and Maid/Matron of Honor can wear the same color, the same dress. So, how can a guest tell which is which during the only time it matters (the ceremony)? The Maid/Matron of Honor stands closest to the bride and is holding the bridal bouquet!

how about a blingy brooch or an outstanding necklace

I’m giving her a bigger flower arrangement and I bought broaches for all of my girls to wear on their dress, so she has a different one.
All of my bridesmaids have the same dresses though.
