Please help! I am considering letting my bridesmaids choose their own dress as long as it is by Impression Bridal and all the same color (Moss Green – the men are wearing Brown Tuxes) and I was just about to ok with it but realized the one my sister likes is a Georgette Fabric. Does anyone know how different Chiffon and Georgette will look when next to each other in the same color. I tried to compare the tiny swatches and one looked slightly darker than the other. Will this be a big deal? It is my sister, not my Maid/Matron of Honor who wants to wear the Georgette. I’ve been trying to find one dress that looks good on everyone and it is impossible. Is anyone else letting bridesmaids choose the style? What if 2 girls like the same style? Is that ok or does EVERYONE have to be different. What abou the Maid/Matron of Honor wearing a differnt color to stand out too? Too much with a different dress. Thanks everyone for your help. – Stressed in Ohio

I’ve ordered Dessy georgette fabric dresses for my BMs. I thought georgette was a type of chiffon, but i’m unsure as to whether the colour will be appear to be different in them as you said they were. I was going to have mine in the same colour but different style dress, but I fell in love with the Dessy georgette dresses so much they are now wearing all the same dress. Sorry i’m not much help but if the colours between the two do look off i’m not sure if i’d be happy with that, only because if they’re slightly off it may look like you tried to match them and they didn’t, do you get what I mean?

Georgette is a crepe fabric, prob made from polyester, some are made from a silk blend. I would stick with all the same color with the Bridesmaid or Best Man and Maid/Matron of Honor dresses if they are picking their own, you might give her special flowers, shoes, or a head piece.

Also, alot of weddings are using this “Mix-matched” look, so I think that it’s fine. If it’s in the same hue, I think that the variety of dress and fabrics will look great.
