I don’t get it either. I am pretty sure people will know who she is when they see her!

I always thought it was a bit strange. I just assumed it was some sort of status symbol thing.

My Maid/Matron of Honor does more than the rest of my bridesmaids does in regards to my wedding. She has the place of honor among my ladies. I want her to be a little different because her role is different than theirs.

@Pokemon:  

I understand why brides choose to do this; however, although I have seen pics of a few weddings where this idea was well-executed, and I liked the look, for the most part, I prefer uniformity — especially in terms of color — rather than contrast for the Maid/Matron of Honor. Often, when I’ve seen pics of weddings where the bridesmaids are all in the same color, and the Maid/Matron of Honor is in a dramatically different color, the effect is to draw attention away from the bride and groom and toward that pop of contrasting color. I tend to prefer symmetry and balance, though.

It’s a “special” thing. I think it’s cute if done well.

It’s just another way to make her feel special because her role as Maid/Matron of Honor is very important. there is a reason you chose her for that position. My Maid/Matron of Honor will wear the same dress as the other girls but I’m thinking of dolling up her flowers just a little bit more to stand out.

@Pokemon: I’m just doing her flowers different. 🙂 It’s not a thank you issue, it’s a “hey you really mean a lot to me here is your place of honor” thing. I tell her thank you all the time for everything she’s done.

That’s funny. I think it’s weird when there isn’t some distinction between the maid of honor and the other bridesmaids. Guess to each their own.
