Oh the joys of mismatched Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. I finally got the last Bridesmaid or Best Man dress in the mail today and was able to see all of four of them together. The first three in the photo (from left to right) were ordered from Madame Bridal and are all “big name” Bridesmaid or Best Man dress companies. (Alexia, After Six, and Bari Jay). I called the company and spent a lot of time ensuring that I ordered those dresses in the closest match each brand offered. The fourth (far right) one in the photo was ordered from a website that we are pretty sure is a chinese knock-off dress maker but it was the only dress that that Bridesmaid or Best Man liked. We chose the color “champagne”.
Sooo what do you think? Should I try to find a different dress for that one BM? I thought about dying hers so it’s a few shades darker but I don’t know if that’s even possible with that fabric.
Oh and my dress is entirely satin and is ivory. (It’s a very bright ivory. I would call it more of a warm toned white than ivory.)

It looks fine. It is lighter than the other dresses but all the colors look well together.

It’s fine- it’s lighter but it certainly doesn’t clash.

Personally it would bug me too. I’m doing mismatched dresses (just told them grey and wedding appropriate) but two of the three picked tea-length, slate grey, all lace dresses. Now my sister is still looking for hers but I feel like she needs to get something very similar to the other girls since they are so similar to each other! Such a pain in the ass. Of all the shades of grey and all the lengths available they couldn’t be different?! UGH.
Maybe you could do a darker sash for the girl in the light dress and throw a light sash on one of the darker ones? That might tie them together more.

Yeah, that’s a little bright. If it were the maid of honor, I think it would fly, but as a normal bridesmaid? Maybe not. It’s a very pretty dress though! Just needs to be a tad darker.

I personally like it!!! I’m doing mismatched too and I still haven’t seen what my girls have….sucks…. I’m doing shades of blush. Hoping it turns out okay

Love them all together! Perhaps they can all wear jewelry that is the same tone to each other but different enough for the style of dress? It might provide more unity if that’s what you’re looking for. But I love it!!

The colors look very well together! The colors seem to grow lighter anyway it looks really nice!

not at all. If it were up to me I’d put a darker one first, off white next, darker one, and the one with the lace top last. That way every other dress has some sort of white. I hope i am making sense. Or switch that around either way they all look good together and if placed right will look really nice.

I think it looks like an ombre hair dye job – from lighter blonde thru darker blondes. So basically very pretty.

I do think the one on the end is too bright compared to the others

You’re guests won’t notice, it looks fine.

I looked at the picture before reading your comment. The dress on the far right looks to me like a wedding dress. I can see this look working if that bridesmaid is someone you want to differentiate from the others (a sister or junior maid or MOH)….. Since you are asking you seem to have your doubts…..Or order a lighter dress for another bridesmaid to balance things out.

I think it works – the light lace on the left dress ties in with the dress on the right.

That would bother me too, I’d look into whether it could be dyed just a little bit darker. If it’s a Maid/Matron of Honor i think it’s perfect!
