I think this is a beautiful look.

Here is a link that identifies all the dresses.


You could go to a home store and pick out paint chips in the color palette you like. Get enough so that each girl and yourself has a full set. It will make it easier for the salespeople helping them select their dresses. Meet with your girls and have them sort out who wears which color.

@ItsMeLee: Do you know about google image search?


click on the little camera icon

click on upload an image

click on browse

upload the pic from your computer- it will search the net and show you pages where the pic was used. Sometimes you still have to follow the path but usually you can find the info you are looking for.

Glad to be of help.

My post was eaten! Let’s try this again ๐Ÿ™‚

So, I’m doing something similar with my bridesmaids. I asked them to choose a different style dress, each in one of the colors of my palette (blush, grey and violet). For continuity sake, they’ve all chosen a dress by the same designer (Amsale, the one who made the dress second from the right in your pic) in the same fabric.  I’m also going to have them hold monocromatic ivory bouquets to help balance out the three colors.

In addition to the paint chip idea mentioned by PP, I also found that getting actual fabric samples is a must to make sure that you like the way all the dress shades look in real life.  After I narrowed down the 10 or so dresses I thought would work, I ordered fabric samples and was able to give my girls specific colors to consider.  Your idea is totally doable, I just think it necessitates more work on the front end to make sure the colors and fabrics are harmonious. Hope that helps!

I gave my girls a color swatch and told them to go at it!  I dislike the look of most bridesmaids dresses and feel it is insane to charge 100+ for a dress that they will probably only wear once.  They both bought there dresses at retail stores.  My sis at H&M and my friend at JC Pennies.  

When I was helping my friend out I found this site : http://www.shopstyle.com.  (There might be more sites like this out there….  I just put in what color I was looking for and it gave me a whole bunch of ideas of stuff at many different stores. )

I love the idea! Personally, I’m having my bridesmaids all wear dressses the same color (from the same designer) and length, but letting them each choose their own style.

And that purple dress is amazing! I love it.

Another idea – go shopping with your girls (individually or in a group) and make sure the dresses they’re trying on are in the proper colors.  I think a “dried rose petals” mixed colors in the dresses would look amazing!
