Yep, I would say so because if you know the history of bridemaids it started off that they would dress similar to the bride so that on the way to the grooms village if there were any kidnappers or someone who might try to steal her dowry they would not so obviously know which one was the bride. 

Also there was a Roman law that required witnesses at weddings and women to dress similar to the bride to confuse and protect the bride from evil spirits. 

There you go, learn something new everyday 🙂

p.s. I know I am a nerd, not sure how I knew this in the first place though.

I agree that it’ll look lovely. It’s clear who is the bride and who the maids are from the dresses so I don’t see an issue- go with what you like, that’s what’s important 🙂

I think this will actually look more elegant/classy than anything. Go for it!

I think it will be great! Weddings these days are really about what you want, not about convention. I think it’ll be beautiful for you to be just a bit different, but in harmony with the maids.
