The easiest way for your wedding guests to identify your MOH at your wedding is to dress her in a separate color from the rest of the bridal party. Go with a color that will complement the others, such as lilac with blush.

Give her the spotlight.

When photographing your bridal party, visually separate her from the rest of the group as well as get solo shots with her. Not only will this make her feel extra special on the big day, but anyone who looks at your wedding photos will be able to pick her out of the crowd!

A more subtle way to differentiate your MOH from the rest of your bridal party is by dressing her in a separate style from the group. This can be as simple as adding straps to a strapless gown or as elaborate as dressing her in a tea length halter gown and the rest of the group in floor length cap sleeved dresses.

Mix in a pattern.

Have a little flexibility in your wedding theme and colors or looking to really mix and match? Dress your MOH in a complementary pattern! We love how this floral option goes so well with these blush bridesmaids, pictured above.
