Of course the spotlight will be on you, but your maid of honor deserves to standout on your big day, too. She's been the one coordinating all of those amazing pre-wedding events (like that unforgettable bridal shower you thought was perfect). She also spent hours (upon hours) listening to you agonize over all of your wedding plans and she was there to help you calm down when you had a minor (okay, major) freakout about the guest list. So reward her for all of her hardwork and dedication by giving her a little recognition on your wedding day.

How can I make my maid of honor standout from all of my other bridesmaids without asking her to wear a different dress?
Luckily for you, there are countless ways to make your leading lady's look unique. In this circumstance, you don't have to do anything completely drastic — it's all in the details. Instead of having your bestie walk down the aisle in a different gown, ask her to rock another pair of shoes. Or you can wrap a sash around her waist or give her a special brooch or hairpiece to wear. You can also give her a unique bouquet to carry. Whether you make it bigger, choose different flowers, or opt for varying colors, it will make your MOH stand out without changing the entire look of her overall ensemble.
