I just dont get it??
I just dont get it??
I don’t get it either. I am pretty sure people will know who she is when they see her!
I always thought it was a bit strange. I just assumed it was some sort of status symbol thing.
My Maid/Matron of Honor does more than the rest of my bridesmaids does in regards to my wedding. She has the place of honor among my ladies. I want her to be a little different because her role is different than theirs.
I understand why brides choose to do this; however, although I have seen pics of a few weddings where this idea was well-executed, and I liked the look, for the most part, I prefer uniformity — especially in terms of color — rather than contrast for the Maid/Matron of Honor. Often, when I’ve seen pics of weddings where the bridesmaids are all in the same color, and the Maid/Matron of Honor is in a dramatically different color, the effect is to draw attention away from the bride and groom and toward that pop of contrasting color. I tend to prefer symmetry and balance, though.
It’s a “special” thing. I think it’s cute if done well.
It’s just another way to make her feel special because her role as Maid/Matron of Honor is very important. there is a reason you chose her for that position. My Maid/Matron of Honor will wear the same dress as the other girls but I’m thinking of dolling up her flowers just a little bit more to stand out.
Eh I still dont get it. Their names will be in the program or order of service books under maid of honour. They will be the ones standing next to you holding your mans ring and your bouquet. Im sure they know exactly how special they are to you for he fact that you asked.
I dont understand the looking different because i do like everythig matchy. Anything more then 3 colours in a colour scheme (unless your going for super colourful) looks stupid to me (no offense just my opinion) and two of those three is taken up by grooms suit colour and brides dress colour.
I also dont have Maid/Matron of Honor. Just two bridesmaids. If your really technical I have a Maid of honour (best friend) and a Matron of honour (sister). But they will be listed as my bridesmaids
That’s funny. I think it’s weird when there isn’t some distinction between the maid of honor and the other bridesmaids. Guess to each their own.
