Our whole wedding is a collection of random and amazing people! Our wedding parties are no different!
Some of my girls are VERY modest. i.e. no strapless and no clevage
Some of my girls are euber trendy and love designer anything or whatever is in style. i.e. strapless is great.
I’m looking for “knee” ish length as some are 5’4″ and others are 5’11”
This is probably my fave so far
I’m also totally fine with multiple styles, but I’m hoping to also keep costs down as some are in church positions and therefore pretty poor 🙂 It seems like the only decent “choose your own” kind of styles are either kinda cheesy typical bridesmaid, or really expensive.
I’d love thoughts!
Here’s my gown. Oct.30 is the wedding and weather is typically cool to borderline cold but not COLD

Firstly your dress is loooovely!
If you don’t mind mismatched gowns how about letting the girls chose their own dresses (with some basic guidelines) that match their personal style. That’s what I’m doing with my girls. I’m not a fan of the typical ‘bridesmaid’ look.

I said “pick a red dress” this is what they’ve come up with. Two more girls need to get their dresses but this has been so fun and i think it looks cuter because everyone is wearing something they love…and they’ll spend what they are comfortable with spending.

I like the one shoulder!
Is there a color family you’re good with? Then everyone could get their own thing!
Also, I think one classic style that appeases to everyone from the modest to the fashionista are cap sleeves. So darn cute!

1950’s style dresses are both modest and very much in style right now.

JCrew has a good variety of modest vs more open dresses, and they’re often on sale for 50% or less! Whee! My girls got $200 dresses for like $80 each (haha except my poor sister who I made order first!)
Otherwise, I think the variety would look really cute, too.

The one shoulder that you linked to is gorgeous! I think it’s modest and very stylish.
