Let Your Maid Of Honor Dress Stand Out (These Brides Did!)

by Heather Hall

All of your bridesmaids are special, but there's a reason why your Maid of Honor is your Maid of Honor — she is your closest friend and (to paraphrase Mindy on the Mindy Project) the top tier of your best friends. Whether it's your sister or best friend let her know how important she is by giving her the option to wear something special. Here are a few ways these gorgeous brides let their MOH stand out.

Danae had her MOH wear a stunning, floor-length gown that coordinated perfectly tonally with the other bridesmaids, while picking up details from her own wedding dress.

Sequins and statuesque silhouettes made this glam wedding on the beach a definite fashion do, but our favorite part is the gorgeous beadwork on the MOH's dress.

If your MOH isn't comfortable wearing something totally different from the rest of the group, then consider a slightly darker (or lighter) shade in the same style and silhouette. She'll still feel special without feeling out-of-place.
