It is most likely that when you choose your bridesmaids, there will be one friend is extra special to you and you might want to subtly announce it to the world by asking her to be your Maid of Honour. Some brides have their MOH carry a slightly different posy or wear more elaborate jewellery. But to my mind, how best to make your Maid of Honour stand out is by selecting a dress for her that is either a different style, a different colour or both! The bride above chose such a beautiful colour combo for her bridesmaids bouquets so it was easy to pick out two gorgeously contrasting colours of the same dress - one for the MOH and another for the bridesmaids.

The next beautiful bride let her bridesmaids choose whatever short style they wanted in her chosen colour whilst selecting a wonderful floral print for her Maid of Honour. The wedding flowers were cleverly worked into the colour scheme so that all the colours from the floral print were in the bride's bouquet, highlighted by a few white calla lilies, with the maids posies being predominantly white with a sprinkling of the other colours. The girls all wore neutral shoes to help unify the whole ensemble to perfection:
You could go one step further and have the MOH in floral AND a different length, as shown below, but the cohesiveness is still achieved by picking out the firecracker colour from the floral for the bridesmaids' dresses. The gowns, from left, are Social Bridesmaid 8126 in Firecracker, Alfred Sung D722FP in Blush Bouquet and Alfred Sung D602 also in Firecracker:
This bride below chose analogous hues to enable her Maid of Honour to stand out from the bridesmaids which of course produces such a romantic and soothing aesthetic.

So take a leaf out of these brides' books and really make your maid of honour feel special - and it will make your wedding photographs look even more spectacular!
