A style that we love is having your bridesmaids mismatched in style. Not only does this look fabulous, but it can also give each of your maids a chance to express their personal style. This is also really useful as women are, rightly so, not all the same shape or size. Each bridesmaids can wear a dress that they look and feel comfortable in, while creating some dimension in your wedding photos.
So, how do you achieve this while still having a general style and flow?
After choosing your colour scheme, pick a specific colour you’d like your wedding party to wear. Then you can let your ladies pick their favourite shades within that colour scheme. Another option is to stick with neutrals and have each woman pick a neutral shade that they prefer - it usually works out that colours like blush, grey, cream and champagne go great together! If you opt for an array of colours, having each bridesmaid have their hair done similar and have the same florals will create a unified look.
Having your wedding party have different necklines is a great way to add some diversity, if you’re hoping to keep them all on the same colour palette. Halter, strapless, off-the-shoulder, it’s all up to what they’re comfortable with! We do, however, suggest that the dresses are all the same length. If some wear long while others wear short, we find that it looks a little sloppy and not as well thought out.
Creating a mix of textures and fabrics is yet another way to achieve a wonderfully unique look. If you choose to mix textures, keep dresses in the same colour palette. Some ideas would be having one bridesmaid in lace, another in sequins, the next in chiffon, and so forth.
