So I’m having a bit of a dilemma. Originally I had picked out a specific designer/fabric/color for my dresses, the only difference being the neckline. However, several of my maids are haivng difficulties finding time to try on the dress (the closest boutique for them is an hour and a half away) and are very hesitant to order a style without seeing how it looks on their bodies. So now I’m thinking it’s time to switch gears and go for a more mismatched theme, staying within the same color family and fabric but there would obviously be some noticable differences.
I’m ok with this, as I’d prefer my girls to wear something they’re totally comfortable in, however my mom brought up the fact that this new theme might not fit the reception venue, which is very grand and elegant. So my question is, will the dresses look silly in this “fancier” room? Or am I worrying about something that isn’t even an issue. If it helps, the dress colors will be variations of grey-blue.

@turtle0305: may I ask what style dress it is. Usually flowy non tight fitting dresses suit a vast majority of ppl. Maybe instead of mismatch change the design. It may look a lil “off” if ur wedding is grand and extremely formal

@turtle0305: I would see if you can pick a color/fabric/designer/length for a designer that can be found more locally!

@babypearls: The dresses I had chosen were a flowy chiffon style, knee length or a little above. I thought they would be fairly easy to pick because I feel like you can’t really mess that up, you know? I had my Maid/Matron of Honor try on about 8 different necklines and we sent pictures to everyone, but the girls still insisted on trying them on (which I don’t really blame them for, I understand wanting to try things on before putting down a couple hundred dollars). I’m not upset at them, but now it’s starting to be crunch time and we have to get these babies ordered!
@BrandNewBride: The only issue with that is that my Maid/Matron of Honor has already ordered her dress and put down money for it. Another idea I was toying with was having her be the only one in that dress while the other two get dresses from a different designer and in a slightly different color shade than her. Do you think that would make it seem a bit more formal and less casual?

I don’t think it’s really mismatched, they just sound like they’re not exactly alike. I’m sure they will look great!
