Could you maybe get her a sparkly brooch for the waist or  something?

My MOHs’ (yes we have 2) flowers are different than the BMs’.

@Elky:  Brooches have straight pins with a clasp. Just stick it in the fabric at her waist.

what about a belt or sash?

something in her hair?

my Maid/Matron of Honor is getting a different bouquette and that is all i am doing to make her stand out.

@Elky:  I don’t think it would look weird at all. Something like THIS could be super pretty.

I hate to say this, but I’m going to be mean for a minute. . .


Make HER stand out? This is NOT about her- it’s YOUR day, darling! How selfish!


Now that that’s out of my system, here are some actual ideas:


– a dramatic necklace that might show off a little


– a hair piece/flower for her hair 


– different ribbon around her bouquete (I know you said the flowers didn’t matter- maybe something a bit special?)  


– maybe a sash of some kind (not sure how it’d look with the cut of the dress- I’m a visual person)


– a light that blinks behind her with Maid/Matron of Honor so people know ๐Ÿ˜‰   Okay, back to mean… sorry ๐Ÿ˜‰


In all seriousness, good luck! My best friend is my Matron-Oh and my little sister is my Maid-Oh… I know how it is- my sister is competing with my bestie, and quite frankly, it’s exhausting to try to make both happy, so I do sympathize- please don’t think I’m a heartless b*. I guess I’m just saying to you what I wish I could say to my girls, hahaha.

I agree if you can find a sash that works well with the dress, that would make her stand out. A Brooch would look really pretty on her hip.


@RheannaRaye:  Your post really made me laugh =)

Since all the rest of the girls dresses have a defined waist, give them a small sash or belt, and her way of standing out is by not having anything at all.




I’m partly kidding, personally I hate this trend of having the Maid/Matron of Honor stand out, but I understand having difficult siblings. A big hair piece would work- I’d go passive agressive and buy the ugliest one possible, and pull the “But I’m the bride” card and make her wear it. But I admit to being a bitch.

@Elky:  Well if it works for you, go for it! It’s what stood out to me, that the rest of the dresses all have the defined waist for a belt/sash to work, and she would look different by not having one. 

I think all the dresses are pretty By The Way. They’ll look nice together.
