Originally, I had two Maid/Matron of Honor because I didnt plan on having any bridesmaids, but I did want one of my closest guy friends as part of the wedding party, so only recently, Fiance and I talked about it and decided that he’d add his closest girl friend too so it would even up. So now his girl friend is a Bridesmaid or Best Man and my guy friend is a Groomsmen. We’re not strangers, so totally fine with both of us (and both of them). She asked me what dress the other girls are wearing and I sent her info and a pic.
But now I’m thinking, would it be weird to have them all wearing the same dress? Or is it fine? I also dont want one girl to feel left out standing there and wearing a different dress.
I’m also aware that it may be a faux pas having more MOHs than BMs, but again, I didnt originally plan to have any BMs and I dont feel comfortable taking the Maid/Matron of Honor title from the original two and making them all “bridesmaids”.

Yeah, I wouldn’t revoke the Maid/Matron of Honor title from the original two.
I don’t think it’s weird to have them all wear the same dress. I would just consider doing something slightly different with the Maid/Matron of Honor flower bouquets (or jewelry or something) compared to the Bridesmaid or Best Man.

Yeah, that’s what I was going to suggest. Same dresses but different bouqets and/or sashes.

I see nothing wrong with having them wear the same dress! I think the smaller the bridal party; the simpler the better! =) Im having 3 girls and thinking of keeping them all in the same gown, and I do have one Maid/Matron of Honor.

Ditto to purplebee‘s comment. I think it would look absolutely fine if you had them all in the same dress. Gussy up their bouquets or jewelry. Is there any possiblity that you could give the MOH’s one predominant color in their bouquets and then use another complimentary color for the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquet?

I was in a wedding where we all wore the same dresses, but the bridesmaid dresses were light blue with a brown sash while the MOH’s dress was brown with a light blue sash. That seemed to work out well! I was also in one where we had a guy on the bride’s side and a girl on the groom’s side. The groomswoman (or whatever you want to call her :-)) wore the same style dress as the bridesmaids, just in black. Personally, for our upcoming wedding, the Maid/Matron of Honor will wear the same dress as the bridesmaids.

I think it is fine to have them all wear the same dress. I also think it is fine for his friend to stand on his side and your to stand on your side (despite gender).
