abbynotabigail :  Does it have to be a suit type outfit?  A jumpsuit would be fairly easy to coordinate with dresses, such as this:

Otherwise I’d go for a lux tailored satiny sort of suit in the same colour as BM’s dresses, like the below:

I think it would be best for the other two girls to have mismatched dresses in the same colour – I think that will look more cohesive overall.

Ohhh jumpers are a great idea! I think they do a great job of maintaining the formality of traditional bridesmaid attire, but allowing for more comfort for people who don’t like dresses. Something like this could be cute for all the BMs, but would also work if one was in a jumper the same color as the other two’s dresses. 


If that still isn’t right, you could have her wear a suit the same color as the dresses. So blush bridesmaids dresses, blush suit, forest green dresses, forest green suit, etc. Something like this would look different from what the groomsmen are wearing and would match the bridesmaids dresses!

My sister’s wedding had dresses and pants on the groom’s side, he had two groomswomen who wore dresses and the men wore pants. They were all in gray.  

ETA: The dresses were not the same, both sides got to pick their own dresses.

I didn’t have a small bridal party but one of them wore a jumpsuit! I think it all worked quite well, but that was mostly because everyone was wearing such different things anyway. I love how it looked (the jumpsuit is the one closest to me on the right) 

And a clearer picture of the jumpsuit here – she absolutely rocked it: 

(these three are my sisters-in-law if you couldn’t tell before haha)

Thsi is what I’ll be doing. My daughter is my bridesmaid and she’s requested pants. My Maid/Matron of Honor is my bestie and she has requested something flowy and comfy so if she’s having a fibro flare she’s good. 

I’m sticking with a similar color palette and playing with the textures to get a fun look. They’ll be tied together and look like wedding party with their hair, makeup, bouquets and that they will be stood with me. lol

My color palette is peacock colors, so teals, blues, navy, copper, bronze and golds.

This is the look my daughter wants:

I told my wedding party to wear “whatever makes you feel fabulous”.  Their attire was all very different– the kids all matched (one mom choose the outfits for them all), and the adults all wore things that looked great on them.  I LOVE the photos of the wedding party because of who is in them, not because of what they are wearing. All miss-matched and to me, the photos couldn’t be better!!

unnamed_1 So my wedding hasn’t happened yet, but this is what I have planned. It is pretty casual, so I’m not sure if it would work for you. I have one bridesmaid who doesn’t wear dresses, one who is pregnant, and one who doesn’t prefer to dress traditionally (jumpsuit), so mismatched was a must. Hoping it turns out the way I envision!
