Aside from the obvious place in the line up next to the bride, how would you gussy up your Maid/Matron of Honor so she stands out a little from the pack? All of my girls are getting two-toned (two shades of grey) convertible infinity dresses, and there was some talk of my Maid/Matron of Honor getting the opposite dress from the others (ex. they do light/dark where she does dark/light)… not a huge fan of this.
So aside from giving her a slightly different bouquet, what else can I do?

I really don’t see the need to physically make the Maid/Matron of Honor look different…she’ll be the one standing next to you during the ceremony and giving the speech at the reception. Your guests will know. I also listed the MOH/BMs and the BM/GMs in our program.

@Wonderstruck: I guess I don’t really need her to stand out necessarily, I was just thinking of something special to do for her… maybe a brooch or something? A hat?
Just kidding about the hat.

Maybe she could have a flower in her hair?

I got my girls earrings and my MOH’s are a little different…I know that wont be noticeable when we’re all standing up there, but I wanted hers to be more special. She is also walking down the aisle alone, right before me, instead of being accompanied by a Groomsmen.

Why not have her in a solid color if the BM’s will be two-toned? The Maid/Matron of Honor used to always wear a different color than the rest, or have a different accent color or bouquet.

We just gave my sister/MOH a “special” bouquet, and I had a starfish ring made for her on etsy that matched my shoe clips (starfish themed wedding)…She loved it!
No pic of her ring on hand, but it was just a crystal starfish that looked like this…It really sparkled and looked awesome with the blue of her dress….

lol, oh wow, I read the title and thought it said, “how do you DEMOTE the Maid/Matron of Honor,” and I thought, “here we go again…” and I’m SO glad that’s not what this is about!

I haven’t decided but I’m thinking of adding a sash to her dress so that they still all look the same and similar but her beige dress will have a purple sash?
Still working on it I loved the bouquet idea also 🙂

My sister will actually have a different dress then the rest of the girls but that wasn’t on purpose, i had her try it on, she loved it i said great lets order it and i’ll tell the rest of the girls, and then one of them pointed out it didn’t come in extra length…and she’s 5’11” (oops!) so I picked out a similar but different dress for them, and my sister will have a larger bouquet with a few different flowers.

Since all my bridesmaids are wearing different dresses (same fabric and color), I couldn’t make my Maid/Matron of Honor stand out that way. So, I ended up getting her a bigger bouquet than the rest of my girls, and also getting her a flower for her hair.

I’m having a Man of Honor, but I do love the photo jholler posted. You can really do anything! I do love the idea of a special headpiece like a fancy headband, flower, ect for her. If you are doing bouquet wraps perhaps you can do a different color for her, and maybe include a charm?

Maybe give her jewelry or different jewlery so she stands out. If the dresses are short, maybe have her wear different “fun” shoes. Maybe get a comb or something for her hair. Idk Thats all I got, although I do like the different dresses idea.

My Maid/Matron of Honor has a little tulle flower pin that clips onto the waistline of her dress. The dresses are in pink, the guys are in navy so her flower is navy to match the guys. It looks super cute too!
