I will be having a mixed bridal party for our wedding as well!

I have a Maid/Matron of Honor, 2 bridesmaids and 1 bridesman, and my fiance is having his 2 sisters as his “best women,” and then 3 men as his groomsmen. I don’t have photos to share, but I was going to have my bridesman match my bridesmaids (his suit will be the same color, which is navy blue so it’s not out of the norm, and his boutonniere will match their bouquets). As for the women of honor, their dresses will match the color of the men’s suits, but their bouquets will match my maid of honors. My bridesman will stand on my side and his women of honor will be on his side.

I think if you find small ways to tie them all together it’ll work out really well! If you want your girls in a more feminine color, like pink, then maybe have the bridesman have a pink flower as his boutonniere, etc.

I think that no matter how you decide to proceed, it will look great, and most importantly, you’ll have the people who matter most standing with you on such a special day. Have fun with it!

I am having a mixed bridal party.  For the actual ceremony, girls are with girls, guys are with guys, but that’s my FH’s call, not mine.  

For pictures, we will have both.  Me with my people and me with the girls, him with his people him with the guys.  What we are doing for clothes is that all the guys are going to match, and the girls are wearing the same colors and different dresses.  We both know everyone in the bridal party, so it’s not a big deal for us where people are standing.  My FH just happens to like things to be matchy matchy, so I’m giving him his way.

I had a bridesman with my bridesmaids! He stood on my side and wore the same suits as the groomsmen but with a different colour tie.

poppy77 :  really good! I loved it. The dresses were navy and so were the suits so it did match somewhat.
