    I think they look great, they certainly would be great for a Hawaiian wedding, and both have pink in them (although different shades) ๐Ÿ™‚

    Maybe it’s too late and you’ve decided but I think you need more cohesion. The first print is quite muted while second one is bold. I love the first dress, I think you should keep looking for more!

    I think they will look fine as long as you find a dress that connects them. Does that make sense? The last one shouldn’t be more muted that the first or bolder than the second, and should match the colors of the two above.

    I would wait to find all of them before you purchase anymore, it will get trickier to find different ones that “match” as you go on.

    I just heard somewhere that if you have mismatched dresses, stick to same fabric. I really like the second one. It looks tropical. Keep in mind the flowers also, you want something cohesive to tie it all together so if you use too many prints, it might be hard.

    I think that you should stick to “warm” or “cool” and not mix the two. The first is very warm, and the second very cool. You should also stick to more similar fabrics and the same boldness of the print. being different prints, colors, fabrics, and dresses will be enough. you should be similar more other ways.

    For example: 

    the above are all similar color schemes and feels, and the same side of the color spectrum.

    I love the idea of mismatching print dresses!  I also really don’t love the matchy-matchy look though, so I’m biased.

    I like the look you’re going for alot- we’re also doing mismatched floral prints (yay for florals)! I would just be careful about choosing your third dress- I would choose something kind of in between the first two. Too much going on/too bright/bold would make it look alot less cohesive, but as long as it’s in between the first two I think your ladies will look like a gorgeous & cohesive group!
