While all of your bridesmaids are important to you, it’s your maid of honor that you have specially selected to be your right-hand woman during your big day. This lady is responsible for everything from planning the bridal shower and the bachelorette party to keeping a record of gifts, going dress shopping with you, helping pick out wedding invitations and coordinating the bridesmaids. Creating a distinctive look is all about making your MOH feel special, rather than separating her from the rest of the group. If you would like your maid of honor to stand out among the rest of your wedding party, here are a few subtle, yet unique ideas:
Different color dress
Let’s say you’ve asked your bridal party to wear pink dresses on your big day. In order to help your MOH stand out, you can ask her to wear a slightly different shade of pink. This way, she will still appear coordinated with the rest of the girls, but will have a look all her own.
When picking out your MOH’s outfit, you can select a special piece of jewelry that only she will wear on your wedding day. This could be a dramatic statement necklace with a pop of color, or a certain bracelet that holds special meaning to both of you.
Your MOH could have an entirely different bouquet from the rest of the group, or you could speak with your florist about going with a subtle variation, such as a different colored ribbon wrapped around the stems or adding embellishments to a piece of lace. Otherwise, your MOH could carry blooms of an entirely different color from the rest of your bridesmaids – just make sure it coordinates with everyone else’s bouquets for a balanced look.
Go shopping with your MOH for a pair of shoes with a dramatic pop of color. It’s a simple way to set her apart from the rest of the girls without going through a whole lot of trouble. You could even paint the bottom of her heels a different shade or write a special note on the sole.
Setting your MOH apart doesn’t have to mean changing up her look. It could be something as simple as adorning her place card with something special. Give it a little sparkle by adding some glitter to it, or you could consider using a brightly colored ribbon on the card to help it stand out.
