I have having an issue with my girls. I have about 5 months until the wedding, and we all can’t agree on a dress. One of my girls have big hips, one is really little, one has a big bust, and the others are about the same size. A dress that looks good on the big hips/big bust girls, the others don’t like. Or the other way around.
MY question is…
would it look tacky if each girl is on a different dress?
Also, is Lapis and eggplant the same color?
Thank you so much for your help!

I’m in “waiting” mode, but when the time comes, I’m going to have 3 bridesmaids and each can pick out their own dress in the same color. But if you have a lot of bridesmaids, a few choices (3 max) might be better than every single one being different. To coordinate they might want to be the same designer so that you know the color is spot on, and if you want it really streamline, the same fabric.

Update- I just read that David’s Bridal calls their eggplant color lapis…checked it out… looks pretty eggplant to me…

Absolutely not! There’s a reason why there’s been an influx of mismatched bridesmaid dresses lately. Not all girls are the same size! So different style looks different on everyone. I’m personally going the route of same color different dress.

Lapis is a blue, (almost cobalt blue), and comes from the stone of the same name. Eggplant is obviously a dark purple. just google it.

Hi @Meowkers! I googled it too which showed that super bright blue, but for some reason Davids Bridal calls their eggplant color “lapis” at least on the website… it’s really weird!!!!!

There is nothing wrong with having different dresses, but limit them to just one company so that the dresses are the same color.

go for all the same colour and material but different models that will flatter the girls in the best way possible

I say pick a color and perhaps material and let them choose their own dress. Hopefully that’ll solve the problem!

I had the same issue…sort of. I have 5 girls that all have different body types, like yours…plus one that has a big birthmark on her chest that she needs to cover…so me and Maid/Matron of Honor went and tried on about 60 dresses because I didn’t want them all in different dresses. So while trying on the dresses we evaluated whether they would work for all different body types and we narrowed it down to three dresses, and I let the girls try on the 3 dresses and vote on one of them. Which ever one got the most vote won. They chose Jasmine Bridal L3008, in bordeaux (eggplant) which is the one that my big chested bridesmaid said she liked the least until she tried it on – then she LOVED it. I wanted them to wear strapless, but since they all loved this dress, I agreed. Lapis at Davids bridal and eggplant are not the same color. Lapis is definitely much more blue
