Let’s face it. Your maid of honor is your wing girl. So, when it comes to your wedding it’s not only nice, it’s necessary to give her a bit of the limelight. The traditional way to distinguish your maid of honor is to have her dress be a different color or length than your maids. This is still a popular and fantastic option, but we are also seeing more creative ways to make your maid stand out. In a word, it’s all about ACCESSORIES! Here are some fun ways we have seen our brides outfit their maid of honors:
- Shoes: Have your bridesmaids wear neutral shoes or sandals and have your maid wear colorful shoes that coordinate with your wedding color scheme.
- Jewelry: Statement necklaces are hot, hot, hot! But having all your girls wear statement necklaces can sometimes be a bit much. Why not just have your maid of honor rock a statement necklace?
- Glitter: Glitz is not just for the bride. We love the trend of having the maid of honor incorporate some glitter into her ensemble. Maybe it’s a glittery version of the maids’ dresses or maybe it’s just a sequin bodice. Either way, it’s a fun way to have your main girl shine.
- Flowers: Talk to your floral designer about making your MOH’s flowers stand out: think more and contrasting flowers, different color ribbon or a lace wrap instead of ribbon, or more jewels, feathers and/or bling.
Also, remember that it’s not just about making your wing girl distinctive from your wedding party, it’s about making her feel special. Don’t forget to ask your photographer to take pictures with just the two of you!
