    I think that would definitely work! I considered it but went with matching for no particular reason 🙂

    Are you going to have them in the same color but different dresses? Or different colors?

    @FMM:maybe it’s just because the pic is from far away, but all of their dresses look the same?

    Totally! I much prefer the mis matched look on brides maids so they can find a style that suits their style/body type.  My fried did this with only 2 BMS and it looked great!

    I had 3 BMs and let them pick any kneeish length blue dress.  It was fine.  I sent them cards with colors from our invites and flowers to use as guides (so we didn’t end up with electric blue or anything too too crazy).  One girl emailed me in a panic that she needed more direction, but that was easily fixed by sending her some links to dresses I thought she might like that fit what I had in mind.  With 3 totally different personalities and shapes (and budgets), it was a million times easier than picking a dress they all liked, at a price they could all afford.

    Its definitely do-able.  Here are pics from a friend of my wedding – 3 girls, different styles (and material) though in the same color.

    I just let my Bridesmaid or Best Man pick out a knee length b&w dress. They wore matching necklaces to help tie everything together. I’ll post a pic later 🙂
