    the dresses are beautiful, but I am honestly not a fan of the added sash. It cuts your bm in half and looks funny in the back—->double sash.

    i would drop the yellow from the dresses entirely. your Maid/Matron of Honor was the one who wanted yellow in the first place but she’d be the only one without any! what if they carry bouquets of yellow flowers instead?

    I like the yellow sash..but I’m just a fan of sashes in general.  I think her wearing a different dress is already going to make her stand out, even if it’s the same color as the other girls.  I do like that yellow dress though.  I don’t think her wearing yellow would at ALL take away your spotlight and given that the other girls would be wearing the yellow sashes, it would all tie in together.

    Personally, I’m not a fan of the yellow sash. Also, if your Maid/Matron of Honor is wearing a different style of dress than the BMs (albeit in the same colour), she still stand out.

    Her wearing yellow is not going to make her “steal the show” Tell your Fiance to worry about his groomsmen. My Maid/Matron of Honor is wearing orange and the rest of the party is wearing yellow. It looks great when they are all standing together. I don’t like the sash. If you want her to be different, but all in blue, then perhaps give her a pin or a bigger boquet than the rest of the girls. Maybe a different color flower. (I like the yellow and blue dresses togeter BTW) lol

    She looks good in the yellow.

    I hate the yellow sash.

    Not a big fan of either of the dresses, but I definitely prefer the first.

    I wore that blue dress (the second one) in a wedding, only black with a black sash (we had the tails of the sash looped through the train b/c there is a loop at the butt part) it was ill fitting on everyone! On the small girls it was too tight and i’m bigger and it was falling off of me, the sash held it up. Not flattering once ordered.

    I like the idea of giving your Maid/Matron of Honor a different color bouquet as a way of standing out that was mentioned.  I don’t think the dress styles varying is a problem and can be another small way for her to stand out.

    I really don’t like the yellow sashes for any of the girls though I’m sorry to say. What if you do yellow hair pieces as a compromise?   Love the idea of yellow shoes though 🙂

    @FutureMrsBohannon: I like the yellow sash IF your Maid/Matron of Honor was wearing the yellow dress. If she is wearing a different style in the same color, I think that makes her stand out enough. If the BMs have a yellow sash and she doesn’t, I think your Maid/Matron of Honor would look like she’s missing something to her ensemble. 

    Have you decided flowers yet? You could make her bouquet a little bigger like a PP suggested, or use different flowers in the same hues as the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets.

    I also like the hair flowers @mjameson83: posted 🙂

    Back when I only had one Maid/Matron of Honor, I planned on giving her a more sparkly neckace to make her stand out more. That way it’s just a little something extra. I wouldn’t put her in an entirely different color dress, but that’s just personal preference talking. 🙂

    I don’t like the sash at all…and to be honest I really really don’t like the second dress. I would do the first in the blue and like @mjameson83 said maybe do something in the hair. Her first choice is so pretty! 

    I would maybe do a different bouquet for the Maid/Matron of Honor, not a whole dress.
