So, I’d already planned on having my girls all wear different, yet similiar dresses all in the same color. My Maid/Matron of Honor and I had gone last week and she tried on around 6 dresses that we liked and I was just going to have the girls all choose one of them.
Yesterday I met one of the other girls to go try them on and she tells me she’s pregnant! Yay! I’m so excited for her, but I realized that none of the dresses we’d chosen would work for her, because they’re all pretty tight.
So, she tried on some dresses, and decided to order one we both agreed would still fit good and look cute at 7 months pregnant.
Now I keep thinking it’s going to look weird though because the dress she chose is a chiffon and all the other dresses we’d previously looked at are a satin type material. Is it going to look weird if everyone is in satin but her?
None of the other girls have ordered yet, so I can still choose different dresses, should I try to pick a few other in chiffon to help break it up?
Anyone have pics of their bridesmaids in mismatched dresses, with different materials?

For reference, this is the dress she picked first, and then the other dresses we’d liked below. Picture them in pewter grey:

My 2 bridesmaids were supposed to have dresses in the same color and both in chiffon (just different styles). One ended up not fitting into what she bought and had to get a satin dress. It was totally fine. Does it look different in photos? yes, but it really wasn’t that big of a deal in the end.
I only had 2 though, so I’m not sure if it would seem more out of place with more girls but I wouldn’t worry about it. As long as she’s comfy in it and you all like it, just rock it!
Good luck 🙂

I had mismatched Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses in different materials – I don’t think it looked odd but I’m not really into matching things anyway. Sorry if the photo is huge – I do try to resize but it never seems to work out for me!

I think mismatched materials look good- in fact I told my BM’s that if all their dresses are the same material (they have almost complete control over what they’re wearing as long is it fits my color palette) that if their dresses match too much I’ll be really upset.

This is one of my fav mismatched dress pix and it has different fabrics and I still love it!
I might encourage another girl to get chiffon or similar flowy something but only because its comfortable and then she won’t stick out as the only one or anything…
even tho her bump will! hehehe
Don’t worry~ think it will look fab!
