    since you only have 3, i would do all different. another option is to have 2 wear the same dress and the Maid/Matron of Honor wear a different dress, but it would look weird if 2 girls randomly had the same dress.

    let them decide. if they all love the same dress, they can all wear it. if they like different dresses, that’s great too! the only problem is if 2 want the same dress, make sure the Maid/Matron of Honor gets a different one.

    I like the look of all different. By The Way those dresses are so cute and dainty! I love them.

    I’m letting my 5 bridesmaids pick whatever dress they want, whatever fabric – just so long as its navy blue.  There are lots of discussions about this on here … some people think different is okay as long as it’s the same fabric, others feel matchy-match is the only way to go, and others (I feel like there are more of them coming around to this) – say – let them pick whatever they want.

    These are my BMs dresses 🙂

    I let each girl choose and all 6 chose a different dress. I think since it is the same fabric and color it will still look cohesive.

    I’m using the same line of dresses too!  I have 7 BMs, and they’re all wearing different dresses.  Here’s a pic I made on their website.

    The top’s a little different, but I think it still fits with the style. I’d be ok with it.

    Your question says you don’t care…should you. No – if you don’t care, don’t try to make yourself care.

    We are going to do same color/fabric/brand/length, but all different styles. I have 4 BMs, but I still think with 3 that it can look nice. 

    Especially because they all have very similar shapes (fitted top, flared bottom) the only really noticeable differences are in the neckline, and I personally like the variety! 

    That being said- If two of the three want the same dress, I think it would be better to go with all one style. I think if there are 3 different it will work, but if you have two in one dress and one in another, it might look strange.

    I like the on shoulder dress. I’ve gone through this dilemma and changed my minds back and forth several times. Do what you want, if you don’t care then let them get on with it.
