any one doing the same dress but different colors?
i want my maids of honor to match, but one loves purple (i found a blueish purple we both love) and the other loves red. i found a wine colored red that looks nice with the blue purple. can i do that? have them wear the same dress but in different colors?
(they have very similar body shapes)
just an example, so you can see the colors
we picked claret and amethyst or burgundy and amethyst from the dessy group
and any dress they want (but i get veto power)
is this fair? will it look tacky?
also, do you agree that the amethyst color is both blue and purple? or would you recomment a different color for that?

We went to a wedding where the BM’s were wearing different but similar colors as you are discussing and as soon as we sat down at the table, people were discussing how the colors of the dresses were off and didn’t match. They thought the shop had made a mistake. She told me the next day that one of her Aunt’s told her she was so sorry that the dress shop had made a mistake and she hoped she got the dresses for a discount because of the dyeing mistake.

I’m doing it! My girls picked a dress and we couldn’t decide between the blue and green (wedding colors are blue green and gold). One of them suggested we do one of each (there was a pretty gold as well)… so we did! I am so excited that my girls get to have similar but different dresses. Best yet– they all got their fav colors! They haven’t come in yet but I am SO excited to see them!

I think that if the colors coordinate and work with your wedding colors, there’s no problem with it!

I am doing it. My 2 sisters are maid of honors and they are wearing light blue dresses and my 4 other bridesmaids are wearing light purple dresses.

@mwitter80: Ha ha, that’s so funny. I am a fan of mismatched dresses and my mum doesn’t get it. I will give the BM’s the colors I like and let them go wild. Wait, there’s only two of them. To the OP, I like your idea.
