I’m going bridesmaid dress shopping tomorrow with my 4 BMs and I’m nervous it will be chaotic and we won’t make any decisions! I do not want my dresses to match exactly. I want my dresses to be very closely coordinated, so that you can tell they go together beyond just being the same color and fabric. I want to have maybe 10 dresses that all match each other all picked out for them to choose from. I’ll limit their choices that much and then let them pick. But I’m so not ready! It’s so hard to tell on the computer whether a brand has a color you like, and whether the dresses go together. The pictures are tiny thumbnails and you can’t make out the details, which are the things that make them work together. Some of the brands have “dress your wedding party” tools or something but my computer is sooo slow with those things!
I’m mostly looking at B2 and After Six. Is there any other brand I should look at for closely coordinated dresses? Any other advice for getting Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses to coordinate closely like this? I hope I’m explaining myself well…

Wow- I think its going to be really tough to find 10 dresses that somehow go together beyond fabric and color.
But, you also might want to look at Mori Lee dresses and all the Dessy lines.
When I was thinking of having the girls each in a different dress, I was going to bring it all together by giving them each a sash or something. You could also use a fabric flower that they can each somehow incorporate into their dresses to bring the looks all together. Or each could wear the same pashmina with their different dresses.

I think it’ll all be fine 🙂
It sounds stressful, but there are so many Bridesmaid or Best Man dress styles out there that I’m sure you can find 10 styles that “go” together. I personally love seeing when a wedding party wears different hues of the same color, so maybe that could be an option for you?

hmm not sure this is much help, and they may not have enough variety for you (you are looking for 10 different but coordinated dresses???) but check out JCrew’s bridesmaid dresses!
