It is VERY normal to have the Maid/Matron of Honor in a different dress. You could always says that you want her to stand out more so let’s go dress shopping for something that is better fitting of her roll as your sister and MOH??

I always thought it was pretty typical for the Maid/Matron of Honor to have a different dress, that way everyone knows she’s that extra special girl in your life!

What a tricky situation! It is common for the Maid/Matron of Honor to either have a completely different dress or a different “accent” on her dress (ex: a different colored sash). Since your sister is making headway with her eating disorder, you are right to be so thoughful and not center getting a new dress on the weight gain. If it were me, I would say you want to get her a new dress so she stands out in her special role of Maid/Matron of Honor. You could get a similar dress from another company in charcoal (that would be lovely) or have her pick out something she else she likes. I wouldn’t even bring up the weight – just say YOU changed your mind (so she won’t possibly construe it with her weight gain).

Very normal for Maid/Matron of Honor to stand out from the other bridesmaids, I say just find a similar style in a different color :o)

Yep I agree with the other two girls…and you can tell her you want her to stand out.  She’ll probably feel better too if her dress actually fits.

I have 2 MOH’s (my sisters) and they are wearing long dresses with the other 5 BM’s wear short dresses. Every girl has a different dress in the same color and fabric. I wanted a subtle way for my sisters to stand out a little and I think the different dresses accomplish this well.
