    it is going to be difficult to find exaclty the same material for all of them, but if you could at least find something with the same ammount of shine to it they won’t look too out of place. Luckily a purple cocktail dress shouldn’t be too hard to find in a range of budgets. Good Luck!

    Though I dont like DB’s customer service down here, I am getting Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses from there because it’s the easiest choice for my BMs who are all over the place. They are all wearing long, satin, truffle brown bridesmaid dresses. Those are the only restrictions. That allows them to choose what fits their body type and at the same time allowing them to stay within their budget. Also, I dont have to stress myself over which 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man dress looks good on all of the girls.

    I did David’s Bridal as well.  I picked out a dozen some-odd dresses, in the same color and fabric and let the girls pick whatever they want.  Although I don’t love love love DB, the dresses were cheap, they came fast, they looked great, and they offered lots ofchoices.

    The third option of the same shade, same material will probably only happen if you get dresses from the same designer which would mean that they would all be at the same price point. I would go with either option 1 or 2. If you don’t want all the same material then I would tell your bridesmaids what types of material to look for because otherwise they might not end up being all the same formality.
