How to do mismatched bridesmaid dresses
There are two main approaches to mix and match bridesmaid dresses.
The same bridesmaid dress in lots of different colours
This is a great option if your bridesmaids all have different skin tones and hair shades or have particular colours they prefer wearing.
It’s also a great option if you’ve fallen in love with a particular bridesmaid dress style but still want all of your bridesmaids to be happy.
This is a good decision for brides who want more control of the overall look of the bridal party,
Different bridesmaid dresses in the same shade
This is a good choice for bridal parties paying for their own dresses as it allows them to choose a dress they love, that they’ll wear again.
If you’re going for a more laidback approach and don’t mind everyone looking a little different, a colour choice could be the way to go.
Differences between the dresses could be the length of the dress, different necklines or different fabrics.
Ideas for mismatched bridesmaid dresses
A unique take on mismatched dresses is for the whole bridal party to wear the same dress, but for the maid of honour to wear the dress in a print, that sets her apart and makes it known that she’s your right-hand woman.
If you’re keen to have mismatched bridesmaid dresses but are worried it will make the wedding look disjointed, why not have all of the bridesmaids wear their hair in the same style for continuity?
