One of the bees, Mrs. Avocado, did that for her BM dresses and her photos looked great!  The naysayers just haven’t seen it done before.  Break the mold, girl!

I was really happy with ours!  We were aiming for fairly low key and relaxed.  My only realy requirement was that they be comfortable.  One was from JC Penny, one from David’s Bridal, and one from “2 cute 2 trendy”.

That’s what I’m doing! I told my girls yellow and I’m just going to let them wear whatever! I trust both of them, so I think it will turn out great!

Oh I def plan to allow the girls to choose their dresses as well.  I like the look of mis-match.  I’ve even seen gorgeous pics where they wore different shades as well.

My 5 girls picked out different styled dresses in the same length and fabric from Alfred Angelo.

I LOVE this idea…you cant go wrong with black, and this way all of your girls will feel comfortable in what they chose as said above.  And like before, different tones of the same general color actually enhance photos…gives you more to look at instead of looking at one girl and thinking to yourself “no need to look at the rest, they are all the same!”

Do not fear!  I was in a wedding where we each had our own black dress, and I had my 9 BM’s each get a floor length black dress for my upcoming July wedding.  Only 2 more girls have to get them, and they all chose great ones from different places.  I did eliminate a few fabric options.  In any case, it’s  agreat idea, and as PP indicate, it can look great!

I’m doing the same thing and used Mrs. Avacado’s wedding and these pictures as my inspiration:

*From Mrs. Espresso’s wedding*

I think they look awesome!

I’m doing this too- also have eight bridesmaids! I originally planned to do just three styles and have people choose from the Dessy group, but people were all over the board– I have four sisters who range from 25-33, and then four girlfriends who are early 20s. I photoshopped a picture of my dress with their dresses, and I think it looks great! I’m a little nervous, because I obviously didn’t get to see them all together in the dresses, but as long as they are comfortable and feel beautiful, I think the photos will reflect that!

 

Here are my BM dresses:

Did this for a friend’s wedding and it looked great! Just make sure to tell them to have completely black dresses. One girl ended up with some white edges on her dress and it didn’t look quite as good.

For my wedding, I’m just telling the girls to find a solid colored dress they like, not white or black 🙂 completely mismatched, I think it will be great.

I was in a friends wedding last october and we picked our own black dresses.

It looked great! They were all different and even different materials.

Here’s mine…

WHile I like the non matchy matchy look, it was more important to me for them to spend what they were comfotable with. They range from $15 to $350. haha I figure, we’re going to have 10x more pics of FI and I than the whole bridal party, so I just want them there and happy.
