I’m not sure if I’ll answer all of your questions but I’ll try! 🙂

The mauve doesn’t bother me – since it does stand out quite a bit, what about having your Maid/Matron of Honor in the mauve colored dress?  With 7 mismatched neutral dresses, I would personally try to stay in the same category of material – like, mostly soft materials.  Like, I certainly wouldn’t want to mix satin in there. But the lacey ivory doesn’t bother me either. I think it’ll work!

Since you’re going for the mismatched look, I’d shy away from having a clear distinction between # of mauve vs peach dresses, if that makes any sense.  I like having every dress slightly different.  But I’m no expert on mismatched dresses, so I’ll wait for others to weigh in on that matter!

Love the mismatched bridesmaid dresses idea, it will look so beautiful! 🙂

I was just posting about this! I let my girls choose from a similar pallette, and most of them chose a pink. I didn’t care if it looked “even” because more than anything I want them to like their dresses. I did ask that not everyone choose rose/blush.


1.  No, I don’t think so. Having light colored Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses will not interfere with yours.

2. No. I think as long as they’re in the same color palette, it’ll be fine.

3.I disagree with the “same fabric” mentality. I just say no cheap polyester/shiny stuff. 

4. Yes, I think you should stick with a simple palette for their flowers. Your own bouquet could be as colorful as you wish. I think that would help make the bride “pop” when you have such similar Bridesmaid or Best Man colors. 

5. I say let the girls decide based on their skin tone and comfort, but let them know that you prefer some variety.

I have one taupe, two champagnes, one peach, two blush (one with gold accent dots). My dress is a champagne with pewter/taupe accents. 

Here’s a pic of what my girls and I chose: 

When I have a pic of us all together I’ll post it! Not long now!
