i say let them wear different shoes and jewelry. i think the best part about mismatching is that you can allow them to have their own style. i know my moh has bad knees so she has to wear flats, and it would have been an issue for her if they had to match so take that into consideration too. i know some people might think that my girls are “too mismatched,” but i thought they looked amazing!

Mismatched bride here!

I asked my girls to get cocktail dresses in navy or cobalt – picking their own shoes – pumps/sandles in silver/pewter. Accessories, on their own… although I did ask for silver, not gold.

The goal of mismatch is to be just that, mismatched. So if they are in the same dress, give them loose guidelines for shoes (color, closed toe vs. open) and let their personalities shine through.

If you have a green in mind – there are lots! send them a few examples. and just ask that they run them by you before they buy.

no, i was very vague about everything. i said wear whatever shoes you want, but my moh showed my other bridesmaid her shoes and i think she decided to get the same color on her own. one has flats (you can’t really see them, they’re cute sandals with flowers on them) and the other is in heals. i bought their jewelry as a gift, and got them different earrings and necklaces, things that i thought they would like, are personal, and will wear again.

My BMs are wearing different DB dresses in the same colors.

For shoes, I just said silver.  Closed toe, open toe, I don’t care.  No one is going to notice the specifics of the BMs shoes.

For jewelry, I just said whatever.  They’re totally mismatched anyway, there’s no need to even make an attempt at the jewelry looking similar.

I told all my Bridesmaid or Best Man to wear a Navy dress and just to 1) be mindful of the weather for their own comfort and 2) don’t wear anything that will offend Grandma.
For shoes and jewelry, I’m pretty liberal about it.

@ artbee: Great looking bridal party!
