So, I like the idea of letting my girls choose their own dress, but is it possible for it to work if I only have 2 BMs? I’m thinking of having my colors be gold, silver, blush and ivory. My dress will hopefully be champagne. I wasn’t sure if the different color dresses would work with just me and the two girls. Thoughs?

Certainly it can work with 2 BM’s. It is much easier to ensure that only two dresses work together than 3-5.

So give them 1 color choice rather than the entire palette option? Like, tell them to choose a blush dress instead of any dress in 1 of the four colors?

@Sweetnsassy: I think they could wear any of your colors, but I would pick blush. Gold and silver can come across as more club wear than bridesmaid dresses.
I would send them a paint sample of the color you mean by blush and let them pick any dress in that color. You could ask them to send you a pic of the dress before the final purchase.

@Sweetnsassy: I am only having 2 attendents (my Maid/Matron of Honor and a bridesmaid). We just chose the styles for our mismatched dresses which will be a Navy Blue… not this green. It’s just a coincidence that they had both dresses in the same color.
I like them mismatched. It helps distinguish my Maid/Matron of Honor from my bridesmaid (Who is much younger)
