I think standing next to the bride is enough. I think that is enough of a distinction. Your other bridesmaids know who she is. You don’t need to make it anymore obvious.

Different accessories/jewelry, either in size, design, or color (all in silver, her in gold, etc). A belt or larger bouquet or a bouquet with different colors, flowers, or accents. Different shoes or a different hair accessory.

megm1099 :  all my ladies were in any floor length blush gown of their choosing – Maid/Matron of Honor wore a rose gold sequined dress (all the other dresses were beaded). If your ladies choose plain burgundy gowns, the Maid/Matron of Honor could choose a fancier one – one embellished with beads or sequins, etc.

I was also going to sugguest some sort of sparkle/sequins on her dress.

Maybe she could wear a dress with a lace overlay top, like this?

You can also look at gifting her a fancy belt to go with her dress (gold or silver or maybe with some sparkle)– I’ve seen that done when the other dresses didn’t have them and it was a nice but still subtle way to make her dress “different.”

I had a thin belt on my dress and my moh had the same. Other than that she looked the same as the other two bridesmaids. It was pretty obvious though since she is my sister and gave a speech at the reception!

megm1099 :  my Maid/Matron of Honor got to wear a broach–at the back of her dress. It was open-back, halter and right at the halter was a thrifted broach.  All the BM’s wore the same dress, but no brooches.

For my BFF’s wedding she had a Maid & Matron of honor. We wore the same dresses while the other bridesmaids wore something else, as the Maid of Honor I wore different larger jewlery and a larger boquet. 

For my wedding, I have only two in my party and they are wearing different dresses. my Maid/Matron of Honor picked her dress out first, I took my 19 year old niece to pick otu a dress and I told her to pick WHATEVER she wanted in grey, she ended up picking the exact same designer as my Maid/Matron of Honor lol so we went with matching colours but different styles.

We are allowing all our bridesmaids to choose their own dark blue bridesmaid dresses  so none of our bridesmaids will be matchy matchy. I wondered as well how to make my Maid/Matron of Honor stand out and in the end we decided to just make her wear a long gown with every one else in short dresses. She actually fell in love with a particular longer gown so it worked out perfectly.
