I have a Maid/Matron of Honor and a Bridesmaid or Best Man and I’m wondering if they should carry the same bouquets? If they carry different bouquets then there will be three different bouquets when you include mine. Does that look weird? I originally thought that their bouquets will be the same, but then Maid/Matron of Honor mentioned that hers should be different because she’s the Maid/Matron of Honor. They will be wearing different color dresses.
For those with a Maid/Matron of Honor and one Bridesmaid or Best Man only, how did you mix and match the dresses and flowers?

I have been in several weddings and the Maid/Matron of Honor bouquet was the same but that does mean it couldn’t be different. Are they wearing the same dress? I think it could look great in pictures if each of you have different bouquets.

This is really just a matter of preference! Since they are wearing different dresses, there is no reason it might look really nice to have their bouquets differ slightly as well. My sisters are my maids of honor and I am having no other bridesmaids, but instead of bouquets they will each be carrying a single stem of orchids. It’s your wedding– you can do it however you want!

I am in the same boat – aMOH and Bridesmaid or Best Man and I decided that both would have similar boquets but a little different. They each will have elements of my bouquet them so it’s all related…

I often feel bad for the Bridesmaid or Best Man in a 2 girl Bridal Party….(that is when there is a Maid/Matron of Honor and a Bridesmaid or Best Man. Sometimes there’s just two BMs or two MOHs.)
I think I would go by your preference. But if it was me, since the dresses are different, I would probably just have the bouquets the same. But I like uniformity. For the record, all of my Bms and Maid/Matron of Honor had the same dress, but my Maid/Matron of Honor did have a slightly different bouquet. If you have them in different dresses and different bouquets, are you OK with the lack of uniformity? If so, that’s fine. However, if getting her a different bouquet means costing you more money, I wouldn’t bother.
But I would really go with how you envision it, not by what your Maid/Matron of Honor thinks is standard. I don’t think there is any specific thing that is standard for MOHs over Bms.

I only have 2 girls and I’m just having them carry the same bouquet. I understand the idea behind different ones, or where the Maid/Matron of Honor has a larger one, but I think it’s just easier to have them the same. I think either way for you will work… they have different dresses so different bouquets will work, but then again, if you have them with the same bouquet then it ties them in better as your bridesmaids, IMO.

Yeah, I think this completely depends on your preference. I’ve seen pictures from one wedding where bridesmaids all wore different color dresses and had a bouquet centered around completely different flowers, and it looked awesome. I don’t think having just 2 girls would make much of a difference.

My Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man will have different dress styles, but the same color. I decided they would have two different bouquets. I picked one with all white peonies and the other bouquet to have all white anemones. I only did this because I love both types of flowers and wanted two different, but beautiful bouquets. My bouquet will be purple and blue. It’s really up to you what you want to do. Either way, the flowers will look gorgeous.

I have a Maid/Matron of Honor and a Bridesmaid or Best Man. They are wearing the same dress. I haven’t made up my mind on the bouquet.

I have a Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man and they’re carrying the same bouquets. They orginally were going to have the same dresses, but Bridesmaid or Best Man got pregnant and had to change her dress, now they’re different.

I just have a Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man and they are both wearing the same dress and carrying the same bouquets which will be very elegant and simple. I don’t want too much going on in the pictures but that is just me.

Well I’ve seen it done in magazines beautifully.
Like different color bouquets … but in the same flowers or same color but different flowers.
I personally think it is soooo pretty when the bouquets are different colors!!!!!!!!!
Also, what does your bouquet look like?
I chose to have only my sister stand with me, so I haven’t gotten to this yet! She’s the moh

I have 4 girls- the three Bridesmaid or Best Man have the same bouquet, my Maid/Matron of Honor has the same, but a bit larger

I told my girls they can pick out whatever dress they want, as long as its orange. My Maid/Matron of Honor is a size 1 and my Bridesmaid or Best Man is about a 9, so they wouldn’t look good in the same dress. I figure that they can get a dress they like and will actually want to wear again, and I’m encouraging them to look at sundresses because they will be super cheap and we are getting married on the beach so it suits it perfectly. As far as flowers, I’m haven’t put much thought into it. But I do think I am doing one type of flower for them, and that same flower for me, but a couple other kinds to accent it.
I think that as long as your dresses and flowers mesh well it will look great any way you decide to do it

thanks for the opinions! they will be wearing different dresses and they’ll be picking their own. i think a reason Maid/Matron of Honor said that her bouquet should be different is that we have completely different tastes in colors. i’m a pink, fuscia girl and she’s the vintage, rustic type. i think the thought of carrying a bright pink bouquet gave her the bejesus, lol
