  • No I don't think it has to be. I know my maid of honors dress was not different.

  • It is your wedding so it has to be what you want but generally the idea is to make the maid of honor a bit different so she stands out. Like you could get the same purple dresses but have the maid of honor have no straps or something like that

  • It can be, or it can be the same, when I got married I had all my dresses in the same color, but different styles, I let them pick out what style the felt was most flattering, it was great,, no drama!

  • Mine will, but, only because I wanted them to have different colors. One is wearing hot pink with orange sash and shoes, one s wearing Orange with hot pin sash and shoes.

  • Some people have them match and some people do not. In my wedding all the dresses matched as is the case in my friend's upcoming wedding in July.

  • It depends on what you like. Its your wedding, do what you want! My sister (moh) will have a the same dress and bm but with a wrap because she is self-concious.

  • "have to", what do you mean? No one HAS to do anything a certain way for their wedding.

  • My maid of honor didn't have a different dress but her flowers were a little bit different. I had A bouquet of White Daisies and Lilies. She had some white daisies in he bouquet also. While the other girls did not.
