My Thoughts on Mismatched Bridesmaids Dresses...

It's a no-brainer that everyone comes in different shapes and sizes, so for a Bride to pick out a style dress that only she likes, seems a little crazy to me.
After all, the Bridesmaids are the ones who are paying for the $150+ dress that they are most likely never wearing again.  Therefore, why not give them some options to make the experience seem a little less painful?

I had my Bridesmaids pick out different styled dresses in the same color, length and material and they were actually excited about their purchases when we left the store.

Here are some photos of mismatched Bridesmaids dresses that I love:











Make sure not to be too laid back and to give your honest opinion if one of the Bridesmaids asks for it (nicely, of course)!
If you are "too laid back"(cough, cough: like I was), it can actually have the reverse affect and stress some of your Bridesmaids out.

Did you or will you have mismatched Bridesmaids Dresses at your Wedding!?

  2. I LOVE mismatched dresses... especially shorter ones because they really will have a chance of getting worn again.
    Weddings are so beautiful now when its not so 'stuffy' but more relaxed with everyone's beauty shining :)

  3. I have always wanted mismatched bridesmaid dresses. I definitely want the same color and length, but I want my bridesmaids to be able to choose a style that looks good on their body. Also, it's so true, it'll help them be able to wear something that they like again!
