My bridesmaids purchased their gowns yesterday and I’m beginning to have second thoughts. I wanted to go with an untraditional theme and have them wear different dresses in the same color, but we fell in love with this one dress from anthropologie. Now I’m freaked out that it’ll look strange for four girls to be wearing this dress. Our wedding is fairly informal with a cocktail attire theme. Am I just overthinking it? The dress we chose is here.

I don’t think it ever looks weird to have all the bridesmaids in the same dress. It can sometimes look weird to have them in different dresses though, it has to be done right to look good, which can be harder. I think it will look fine on your wedding day, and what your girls are wearing will be the least of your concerns anyway 🙂

Thanks for the support. I only felt that it was weird that they were in the same dress because the dress we chose is slightly modern/trendy and I didn’t want to end up looking dated.

First, I thought the dress you all chose is beautiful and totally goes with your cocktail attire theme! Second, I had to take a double-take when I read your post because the exact same thing happened to me yesterday – we ordered the bridesmaid dresses yesterday and the girls decided on their own that they should wear the same dress although I had been advocating they would wear 3 different, complimenting dresses. I couldn’t believe it! But they like the dress and that is what matters. So, that makes me glad. Also, I think your dress is great because it’s one that they can wear again – doesn’t look so bridesmaidy. Finally, I was thinking they could differentiate based on hair, shoes and jewelry – you could consider that?
Hope that helps 🙂 Congrats on finding the bridesmaid dresses! It was a huge relief to get them ordered!
