@adalm03:  I wouldn’t add anything to the dress. Sashes tend to look like an afterthought to the design. None of us wear sashes with our dresses in real life, yet many brides think they need to add one to the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, either to differentiate the Maid/Matron of Honor or just to use their whole color palette.

Everyone will know the Maid/Matron of Honor. She will be the one standing next to you.

If you must do something different, I would get her a different necklace.

I’m wearing this dress in a wedding in March and the Maid/Matron of Honor has the same one, same color.  She is going to add a blingy brooch right in the middle where the rouching material crosses.

@adalm03:  Yeah, I wouldn’t add anything to the dress itself. With the ruching and everything a sash would look really weird and I think a brooch dead center above her stomach isn’t going to be flattering on anyone. Maybe a big statement necklace, a shawl or have her go with a different shade of dress altogether.

@adalm03:  I agree with previous posters about not adding anything to the dress. 

Are your girls carrying flowers?  Maybe have something different for the Maid/Matron of Honor.

@MexiPino:  ive seen on the  David Tutera show adding brooches to the dress but you to put it in the right spot and it has to be the right piece. I think she should either add a brooch but not in the center (you are right it would look odd) but maybe off to the side. ORRR wear flashy jewlery. Dont do both a brooch and flashy jewlery bc then its too much
