I think that if you really like the mismatch look then make sure they know you do! and that you would like them to pick our their afvorite one! but if they are all liking the same dress and all want that then i think that maybe you should just go with that.

But just remember that it is YOUR wedding and if it comes down to you wanting different dresses, then maybe you should pick out a different one for each girl and tell them thats what you want them to wear.

I don’t have any advice, but I think it’s hillarious that you have the opposite problem of so many brides whose bridesmaids want different dresses when they’re supposed to pick just one. Sorry – I’m not laughing, really. I would let them get the dress they love.

I would let them know that you prefer the mismatch look but I think the bridesmaids should be able to choose the dresses that they feel best in. If they are happy with the dresses and you think they look good I would leave it at that.

Hey why don’t you ask them all to wear their hair different, or gift them all a different piece of statement jewellery?  You can make their bouquets different also and just use the dress as your canvas?

What is the dress if you don’t mind me asking?  YOu could have different coloured wraps or little jackets.  The main thing is they feel comfortable – cos if they don’t then it will show in all your pics!

Wow, I’m really curious which dress they like 🙂 My girls ended up in three different dresses!

I agree with mrsgtobee. There are other ways to mismatch. How about shoes? Are you letting them pick their own shoes?
