There are so many options when it comes to bridesmaids dresses and a lot of brides have a hard time with the selection process. Luckily, one of the biggest trends at the moment is mixing and matching bridesmaid’s dresses, so you don’t have to narrow it down to one option. Whether you want each of your bridesmaids to have a different look or want them to wear the same dress in different colours, the choice is yours!
The following guide will provide you with some ideas and inspiration on how to mix and match your bridal party outfits:
Different dresses, same colour
If you want to keep it simple yet unique, you can choose one colour in one fabric and have every one of your bridesmaids wear that same colour in a different silhouette. This is a very popular option because it allows each of your bridesmaids to pick a dress that is comfortable and flattering for them based on their body type, instead of forcing them into a silhouette they may not like. As long as there is consistency in terms of colour and fabric, the result will look fabulous!
Same dresses, different colours
This is another option to consider and looks great in pictures. You can choose to have your bridesmaids wear the same silhouette in different colours, textures and even patterns. This will provide you with a colourful variety and your bridal party will stand out. You can choose two or three colours that work well together or select a completely different colour for each bridesmaid if you prefer. This option will allow every one of your bridesmaids to have a different look.
Different dresses, colours, patterns and textures
This may sound overwhelming but it is definitely an option to consider if you prefer a look that is bold. Mix and match silhouettes, colours, patterns and prints and your bridal party will really shine! To make things easier, you can choose two or three consistent colours and coordinate the other elements with these to create some form of balance. A great trick is to have at least two bridesmaids coordinate with each other as this will elevate the appearance of your bridal party. For example, if you are a fan of sequins, make sure at least two girls have sequins on their gowns, whether it’s the entire gown or trim. The same goes for patterns or prints to have some form of balance.
