@farmergirl: I didn’t do it (I also had a Maid/Matron of Honor who didn’t like the lack of symmetry, haha), but it’s been done and it looks great!  Any of those colors will be beautiful, and I think it will help your girls to give them some kind of guidelines (colors, materials, length, etc.), otherwise that’s when the lack of symmetry really will come in!

I think burgundy could be a really great universal color for your girls, what do you think?

Here are some mismatched dresses in darker colors- including two bridal parties in burgundy!

Hope this makes you feel more confident about using the darker colors.

I think it depends what kind of mis-matched look you’re going for. Some brides give their girls entirely free range, other pick the designer and the colour/fabric and the girs are just wearing different styles.

I think you might be right that it seems to work better fir the entirely free range to have a lighter colour. But the second option would work for whatever colour you choose.

@farmergirl: I was in H&M the other day and they had super cute, semiformal, budget friendly dresses. From what I can remember, there was at least four different style dresses that complemented each other in fall colors (rust, cream, brown hues). Prints and solids. They were lovely…hurry, because I doubt they will be around long.

We did mismatched dresses for our September wedding – let each Bridesmaid or Best Man pick any dress (material, length, style, didn’t matter) as long as it was navy blue.

I went shopping individually with each of my BMs.  It was nice, quality time spent together, and we then made sure the dress was in the same color tone as the others.

I love mismatched dresses!  I also love ivory, but that was off limits because I wore a short dress so it might have been a little weird to have them in short, ivory dresses, too… I had a September wedding and we went with mismatched and an unusual fall color.  I just told them to choose something green or blue-green that was knee length or shorter.  Here’s what they looked like, plus all our guys in mismatched suits:

We had a fall themed wedding with mismatched bridesmaids dresses. Like you, it was more important to me that my girls chose something that they were comfortable wearing and that fit into their budget over having everything look identical (which I’m personally not the biggest fan of anyways). I gave them some basic guidelines to follow (color, length and fabric) and asked that they choose their dresses from the same line so that there were no color variations (burnt orange will never be the same from different designers). I thought that my girls looked amazing! They were all comfortable in the dresses that they chose and they fit their personalities.

I’m at work so I don’t have a ton of pictures on this computer but this should do the trick…

I am having my girls wear Alfred Sung dresses in duipoini in navy, but they can pick any style they want.  Alfred Sung literally has around 20 different styles, so it give them an opportunity to choose one they really like.

I asked my ladies to get yellow dresses, could be slightly patterned, not full length and more sundress style than cocktail dress. A few bridesmaids have been iffy on the mismatching thing but our wedding is going to be rather casual and I can’t be bothered to spend time in a bridal salon trying to figure out dresses for women from 5’11” to 5’2″, plus size to petite, who all live across the province.
