I like mismatched dresses. I’d rather see mismatched dresses of the same color that actually fit people than one dress that doesn’t fit all the girls. Something that obviously shouldn’t be on someone’s body to me seems more awkward than different styles. Just my 2 cents. 🙂

Mismatched dresses are very in style. My mom really wanted me to do this but for my own visionary reasons I didn’t want to do this. When the fabric and color are the same I think this can look great together. The bridesmaid who needs her shoulders covered can wear a shawl or add some fabric. My girls did this with their dresses, but we all had the some modesty constraints so it worked on everyone.

We went with mismatched dresses and it came off very nicely. Here’s how ours worked out…

We had one girl who was petite but very curvy. One who was a ballerina and quite athletic. One who was seven months pregnant. And they lived in three different states! Mismatching was the best option for us.

The trick is that, unless you’re using black dresses, you’ll need the girls to come up with shades that complement each other. Our solution was to mail each girl a set of paint samples (from the paint section of the hardware store) and ask them to please choose something in THIS specific range of greens. No two dresses were the same style, and each one reflected the sensibilities of the girl who wore it.

And, by the way, your bridesmaids will love you for this! They can each pick something that they think is cute while staying in a price range that makes them comfortable.

My bridesmaids are wearing black dresses. I asked them to just buy whatever they like, with very few guidelines (totally not worried about any of these girls looking too showy, too casual, or slutty) or even better, to wear something they already have. EVERY woman already has a black dress, probably several.

We’ll “unite” their look with taffeta shawls which I’ve already bought (two-sided with same colors as my invites) and jewelry that I’ll buy. Their jewelry might not be identical but if not, there will be at least a theme.

My Fiance greatly disliked the idea of mismatched BM’s as well, and I was surprised. I wanted to have his groomsmen wear mismatched ties as well, but I think we are going to settle for all the groomsmen wearing one pattern/color and Fiance wearing another. Who knew he would be so traditional in this sense? Not me! I think my BM’s will be wearing the same color/fabric with a choice of style on the top of the dress.
