maybe she can just wear a chiffon dress that is one solid color that compliments those dresses? like a light pink or maybe light green? I don’t think putting her in floral is a good idea since it won’t match those dresses. If it were me I would go for a solid chiffon color. Make sure to emphasize that it’s different because she is your matron of honor and not because she is plus size!

I also agree that a solid color chiffon dress would look best. Maybe you can get a floral sash or something for her waist – are the other two going to need their dresses hemmed? You could use that material to have her tied in to the theme while still standing out as MOH. Or, since the dresses were so inexpensive, just buy another dress to take apart for a sash? Haha that’s a bit ridiculous though.

I would pick out one of the colours from the floral dresses, the soft pink or the greens and get her a solid coloured dress so she stands out but also compliments the other bridesmaids. Same length and all, just a pretty a-line style bridesmaid dress.

Definitely agree with everyone- One color chiffon dress will look beautiful- especially if you match it correctly.  And emphasizing that it’s because she is the MOH will help 🙂

jeneil:  

Da Vinci bridal does Women (plus) sizes in their BM line which is awesome because they are tailored for plus size brides not just small dresses made in larger pattern. Also all of their dresses are available in these sizes which is awesome. I am sure you could find something that will compliemt your other girls esepcially since their dresses come in pretty much any color you need, and I agree with the other bees in doing a solid color for this dress.

Second to last (flower in hair) looks like a bridesmaid to me. And just make it the same color as the other bridesmaids.

Just realized what you meant about the colors. I think you weren’t thinking about her enough when you chose the other dresses but I agree with pp about letting her choose a solid color that goes with the dresses. Is there anyway to return the other two dresses? Maybe go for a solid color instead?
