I’m trying to figure this out too…..I was thinking about a bigger bouquet than everyone else.  But it also does help that your MOH will be the first person beside you.  I like your idea of a brooch too!

I went with a bouquet that was a bit bigger than the other girls.  It wasn’t super noticeable, but considering she’ll usually be the one who stands next to you in photos, it was usually fairly obvious who the best man and maid of honour were.

Besides flowers think accessories. You could have her wear a sash or even a different hairpiece. It’s all in the details! Maybe her shoes could match yours in a different color.

I have a friend who was a MOH and her bride incorporated her favorite flower into the bouquet.  The BM bouquets were light pink roses, so for the MOH, light pink calalillies were included.  It was super cute and my friend was really touched that the bride though of her in it.

A wedding I was in this summer had the MOH in a different dress.  (They were long skirts and seperate tops, so her top was different than ours.

Finally, in pictures of a wedding I saw online, the colors were green and yellow.  The BM were all in yellow dresses with green sashes and the MOH was in a green dress with a yellow sash. It was SOO cute!  My original colors were purple and orange, but I may be throwing teal into the mix rto replicate that look.  Depending on your colors, that could be a really cute option as well.

I was just the MOH for my friend’s wedding and she made my bouquet stand out.  The rest of the bridesmaids had green hydrangeas with red roses and my bouquet was green hydrangeas with white roses.  Other than that I like the different accessories or dress idea.

My my MOH I plan to have a larger bouquet with different colors to stand out a little the rest.

We planned to put accessories into the bouquets (I had 2 MOH’s), like pearl picks or cream spray roses.  But when we were making the bouquets the night before it got a little confused and they all had matching bouquets.  It didn’t matter in the end, it seemed pretty obvious who they were.

I had the same issue, and I ended up having a hair flower made for my MOH that complimented mine (sorry for the black and white – mine was white, hers was dark yellow):

Her bouquet was also larger, but it really was barely noticeable.
