When it comes to your wedding party, there are many modern trends that you and your beloved might consider including in your planning process and your special day. Everything from bridesmaid proposal kits to destination bachelor(ette) parties are on the rise – most of them serving the purpose of highlighting your friends or creating bonding situations for all involved. It is for the love of your nearest and dearest that you owe it to yourself to sit down and go through all of the options to celebrate your bridesmaids and groomsmen during your engagement. One fad some brides have taken a shine to is the differentiating of the maid of honor. 

Some women who desire to embrace the older tradition of showcasing a single dress design for each one of their ‘maids may also want to make their MOH stand out. Most of the time, this has to do with the nature of their close relationship, such as sisters or cousins, and the bride decides to ask all of the girls to purchase the same gown besides this person. While you undoubtedly feel incredibly close to your maid of honor, be warned that this trend could cause some hurt feelings amongst your bridal party.

However, under the circumstances that it works for you and your girls, scroll through the photos below of brides that have incorporated this fashion choice into their nuptials. Be sure to click on each photo for further inspiration.
