If you recall last month’s blog post on Color Runs, it’s not uncommon to ditch the monochromatic bridesmaid dress theme in favor of individualizing colors, shades, and styles for each girl. In a sort of reconciliation between the tradition and the color run, another option is to put just the Maid of Honor in a dress of a different shade or color.
