so i have a slight problem…. and yes my date is far enough away that i still have plenty of time but i want to deal with this as soon as i can. so my Bridesmaid or Best Man are of all different sizes and they are all comfortable in different things. And colors. so here is my problem- i cannot find any “wear again” dresses that i like and that they would be comfortable in and that are not too expensive. i was thinking of just telling them the color(s) that i would like them in and what shades to stay between and let them go. Do you think that this is a good idea? Anyone have pictures of this? my colors are royal blue and pale yellow. with pops of red. i am also thinking of adding a soft grey…. so Hive, what do you think? Thanks In Advance….

If possible, hand them a swatch to match and it should be fine. Both weddings I have been in, all of the bridesmaids wore different styles in the same colors. It seems to be pretty normal now adays.
My vote would be for the royal. Most people look good in royal 🙂

I never like the way this looks in pictures. However, if you are going to go this route, make sure you pick the manufacturer and the color. They also need to order it from the same shop so you get the same dye lot, etc. Go with just one color–more than that is really choppy looking and takes away from the bride. And we can’t have that….

I think the swatch idea is great. Each lady can take it with her when she’s shopping and match as well as possible. Good for you for understanding they need different dresses!
