I decided to go with the two tone thing some brides do for their wedding party, which each bridesmaid dress a different color. However, I only have 2 bridesmaid’s. My fiance thinks this is strange……is it? His wedding party will be wearing the same colors as my wedding party so I didn’t think it was weird, but now I’m second guessing myself. Of course, his groomsmen are both matching. They are wearing wine, rose petal, and black. Three colors I chose. My bridesmaids are wearing each a solid color, one in wine, one in petal.

Following as I was thinking of doing something similar, got 2 bridesmaids and a flower girl and my colours are navy, grey, blush pink and ivory. So I’m thinking me in ivory, bridesmaids 1 navy 1 grey, and flower girl in blush!

is it weird? no. but i do think that the mismatched or multicolored thing works best with larger numbers. in a larger party it looks more purposeful, and the numbers themselves being cohesion. in a smaller party, it looks more random imo. with just two, i’d probably have them match.

I’m having three, and we’re doing three different shades of coral and different styles. To keep the “different shades” theme going, we’re also using various mixed shades for the flowers and the sugar flowers on the cake.

I think having different colors makes more sense with a larger group. If they were subtle tone differences, I think it would work better. But you do you!

I’m not really a fan of having two single colors for bridesmaids (much prefer various shades of the same color) but I do think it looks more purposeful when there are several members of the bridal party. When there is only two it just looks like you’re trying to cram in both colors imo. I would pick either wine or petal but I would not do both for only two bms.

I think I agree with your Fiance and previous PPs. With only two bridesmaids it’s a little strange that you’ve given them different colours to wear. I can see it working with more than two BM’s for sure but with two it just seems like you’re trying to cram your colours in there.
Maybe try two wine dresses with a petal sash?

pp said Maybe try two wine dresses with a petal sash? which is a good idea . Or one dress in each colour with the sash in the other colour.

I don’t see what the big deal is, just have them wear 2 different colors, it will still look good lol

Unless it’s your preference to have things match I think it’s fine.

I personally don’t like matchy matchy so I think its totally fine.
