    Yes. Because of different body types it's ok to do different styles. : (98 votes)

    The color may look different, especially under certain light and in photos, between the jersey and chiffon. If you let the ladies wear different gowns, they should all be the same fabric. The girl who looks the best in the dress she has on is the one standing alone. Second from the left looks good too from what I can see.

    @mrsSonthebeach  Agree 100%. Keep the fabrics the same and order them at the same time, so that the fabric is from the same dye lot. Otherwise, the colors will look different. 

    David’s Bridal bridesmaids dress colors vary greatly between fabrics.

    I have my girls in different styles (let them choose) and they work great together! Some are strapless, one is a halter, and 2 have straps. They are all the same fabric/colour so they flow well:)

    I personally like the look of mismatched dresses and fabrics. Here’s a good image to give you a little better idea of what it would look like:

    I will say though, the fact that all of these fabrics are so different is what makes this look work. I feel that if you have three chiffon dresses and one jersey the bridesmaid wearing the jersey dress is going to stand out more. However, if the bridesmaid wearing the jersey dress is your maid of honor this might work!

    All 6 of my bridesmaids are literally between the sizes of 2 & 6- so the one dress I picked out flattered their bodies just fine. If I had bridesmaids with different body shapes, I would def explore different options– but at the end of the day, it is the BRIDE’s decision what she wants her girls to wear!! The girls will have their chance when it’s their big day. 🙂 

    I’m a bridesmaid in 3 of my girls wedding and I’m just wearing what they want me to wear and they’re just wearing what I want them to wear, Lol!

    I love slightly mismatched bridesmaids! I went with David’s Bridal lapis, all in satin. My girls loved their dresses, and I’ve been so excited to see them actually wear them to other events. I second what

    @mrsSonthebeach said that choosing the same fabric type really helps with uniformity.

    I love the idea, hoping my sister will choose the same approach for our dresses, but PLEASE keep the fabric the same!  You don’t want one dress throwing off the whole thing.

    My BMs varied in size from 10 – 24. They all wore the same dress I picked for them and they all looked gorgeous. All you have to do is find a dress that looks good on all body types

    We ordered dresses from DB – all at different times and in different parts of the country – in cotton sateen, crinkle chiffon, and chiffon. I think the dresses looked great together.
