I picked a color, length and fabric, and we narrowed everything down from there. 🙂

I personally love mismatched styles/colors too, but my girls ended up liking the same dress.

Well I haven’t picked them for sure yet. I have just two bridesmaids. My colors are chocolate, cream, and light pink. First I thought of what color would look good on my BM’s. Then I thought of my hall and thought of what would look best against the scenery. It’s an all stone hall and while i originally wanted dark cream, short, cotton Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. I’m back to thinking about it though because I thought of that style when we were thinking of going with the log cabin hall.

Since I only have 2 BM’s we will pick the style together otherwise I would have given the girls a list of places I like and let them pick there own. Does that help at all?

I picked the color and designer.  I told them it couldn’t be floor length, but other than that they had free reign.

I’m still trying to decide for my bridesmaids… I know the color I want – a champagne/light beige color, and short dresses, but thats all I’ve got. I keep going back and forth between dresses with pockets (my dress had pockets, thought it’d be a cute photo op) or mistmatched dresses (and doing a shopping trip with the girls to pick them out together so they’re still cohesive).

I have been doing lots of ‘research’ with my pinterest board to pin photos of looks that I really like, and since almost all are mismatched I may go that route…

@BoiledPNut:  I did this as well.  I told my girls I wanted a chiffon, knee length (ish) dress in tealness.  They’ve all already picked and the last one plans to order next week.

I initially wanted brown or champagne but my Maid/Matron of Honor didn’t like brown.  We decided on a taupe. I think the designer called it sand.  My Maid/Matron of Honor and one of my bridesmaids and I picked out the dress. My Fiance was texted options too.  In the end we picked the dress with the best fabric and also the dress that was flattering on everyone.
