Letting pick the style that fits them best but keeping the same fabric and color is going to be your best option… plus I think it is fun and allows them to express who they are also… good luck!

I agree^ My bridesmaids dresses are a different cut than my dress, but the chiffon fabric ties them together and still makes everything look uniform 🙂

@WellyBride:  Personally I think you have a lot of options:

Different materials – different dresses – same shades (ombre?)

Different cuts of dress – same designer

Completely different colors (maybe each ina hue from your wedding colors?) One bride is doing all ‘peacock colors’ so purple, navy, teal, green, blue, etc.

I have unmatching dresses – in floral pattern that all have some basic ties together – same size print, all short – and using cowboy boots and similiar pearls to pull it together.

Well, I am in this predicament right now.  I am the only plus size bridesmaid in a wedding.  I love the dress that was picked out for everyone.  Since I am plus size, I was not able to try on the dress before buying it.  The bridal shop we all had to get the  dresses from only had a size 12 sample.  The shop took my measurements and are making me buy a dress that is going to be huge on me!!  They base everything on measurements.  Hopefully, it ends up fitting.  I guess what I am saying, is picking a color or material or both and then having your bridal party pick out their own dress would be ideal.  I think it looks great and it can make the women in your life feel special if they get to pick out what they think looks best on them.  Good Luck!
