I would love for my Maid/Matron of Honor to be distinguished apart from my BMs. My question is this is there a such thing at the Maid/Matron of Honor being too distinguished?
Also I’m trying to decide if putting the Maid/Matron of Honor in turquoise and the bridesmaids in fuchsia would make my bridal party not look right. What do you bees think?

I personally want a more cohesive look (ie all in the same fabric/length, similar styles or the same), but if you want her to stand out, the same dress in a different color of the same fabric would be a great way to do it! Especially a compimentary color like you’ve chosen. 🙂

My mom wants my sister to stand out.. but with the dresses we have chosen, she won’t really. Fact is, she will be holding my boquet, fixing my train, and standing next to me. In my opinion, I don’t need to distinguish her any more… but if you want to.. you can always have a different color sash, a larger bouquet, or a boquet with a wider color range. You can make her dress longer or a different color.
I think if you are going to make her in turq. and the other girls in fuschia, just get a fuschia sash for the Maid/Matron of Honor & a turq. sash for the other ladies.
Lots of things you can do!

For my sister’s wedding last october, my other sister and I were both maids of honor. We wore a different style dress in the same color as the other girl who was a bridesmaid. I think it was a perfect compromise to stand out but still be cohesive.
For my wedding, I”m having both my sister’s as maid/matron of honor and two friends as bridesmaids. I like the different but coordinated look, so i’m hoping they all will choose either the same dress in different colors or different dresses same color.
