Okay, so I have all my bridesmaids & Maid/Matron of Honor picked out…& we’re about to order the dresses I am also having a “second” Maid/Matron of Honor which is in fact a “god-mother” (catholic tradition). So my Maid/Matron of Honor & “god-mother” will have 2 different but very similar dresses, which are both teal with a brown sash & the other bridesmaids will have brown dresses, completly a different style from the other 2 ladies. I began telling my fiance about the dresses & he says that that he thought the MOH’s are supposed to wear the same dress as the other girls?!!? I thought that it was common to have the MOH’s atand out….Of course I’ve entered freak-out mode…..is he correct or does should I just tell him to worry about the tux’s…. 😉

@mrs.ball2b: Tell him to worry about the tuxes. 😉 I’m having 2 maids of honor and 4 bridesmaids. All 6 girls will be wearing different dresses in the same color. Don’t stress over this!!

All of my girls wore same color, same hem length, but different style dresses. I distinguished my Maid/Matron of Honor by her bouquet. It was slightly larger than the others and had a third type of flower.

Both ways are common, so dont worry. Do what you want!

You’re fine! Some people do have the MOH/s in different dresses, but a lot of people don’t, too. It’s just personal preference!

@jo.lee: I like both ways…but I like the idea of 2 teal dresses instead of 8! Toooo much teal for one church! haha. & I like the idea of them standing out because they’re so special to me. 😉
Thank you all ladies, I can breathe again…. 😉

Everyone in my wedding party are wearing different dresses, but all in the same material (green seersucker). The only thing that makes my Maid/Matron of Honor stand out is that, instead of flowers I’m having my BMs carry clutches which will be silver…the Maid/Matron of Honor will have a purple one. That’s how I’m making her stand out!
