I am only having two bridesmaids, my sister and my fiance’s sister, and each has chosen a different dress. They both ordered online and haven’t tried on the dresses “in person” yet, so this is still somewhat theoretical. In your opinion, do these two dresses “go” with each other? I know they are not matches, but I wanted each girl to have the freedom to choose a dress that they felt comfortable in and as they are not at all the same size, this seemed like a good option. Our color is “Fig” from paper source
These are the two dresses the girls picked out. A dress in the “vino” color from Ann Taylor and a dress in “spiced wine” from J. Crew.
Do they work together?

I would try to keep to the same fabric, and its hard matching colour unless it is the same designer. But if you are happy with it, then that’s all that matters.

I like them both seperately, but together I just don’t think it works.

I like it. I don’t like the matching BMs.. it doesn’t make sense to me, I mean I would never want to go to a party in the same outfit as a bunch of other girls. I think it’s nice. None of mine match!

Agree with PP. I don’t like the different fabrics. I personally think for smaller bridal parties the girls shouldmatch or it looks a little off.

I actually like them. The lighting on the two images is vastly different so you’re not really getting a true picture of how the colors will match. I think they are close enough to work very nicely together. It will be obvious that they aren’t exactly the same, but that’s the point. I would at the very least, wait until they get them and try them on before you make any move to ask them to change. They can always be returned.

Just FYI, I had J Crew send me a swatch of the spiced wine in chiffon and it’s actually sort if a dark raspberry color! If your looking for a darker purple, will the darker violet color they have work?

If you don’t mind that the colors will look different, then I say go for it. I like each dress separately.
If you want some level of uniformity, then I suggest same fabric/designer, like pps.

I like it. An exact color match would be best, but still I think it looks okay!

I think they tone in with each other.
My younger bridesmaids are in a deeper shade of green than the older ones. There wasn’t an exact colour as different makes of dresses so went for a shade deeper. All tones in though. If they had been slightly different would have looked like you were trying to match but hadn;t worked x

I like both, but I think the second dress says casual while the first says formal. But they are pretty, I wouldn’t pair them though, but just my opinion.

I think it’s fine that they don’t match but they’re too close to just “go” together, it seems like. it’s so hard to say just from pics though, you’d have to get them next to each other in person.

I like a really mixed mix and match. Colour fabric, everything. So I think it looks great.

I’m doing something similar. I only have two bridesmaids and both chose very different dresses. But I decided to do the whole mismatched look because mainly I wanted my girls to feel comfortable in something that they liked and wanted to spend their money on, and could spend what they felt comfortable with, so I am sticking with my desicion. I think the dresses are fine with eachother. You can always choose matching accessories.
