Bridesmaid Dresses: Uniform or Unique?

When choosing my bridesmaid's dresses I was tasked with the decision of making them all uniform or giving everyone their own unique dress within the color scheme and fabric of my choosing. Ultimately I decided for everyone to have the same dress BUT one that the girls all agreed on.

What are your thoughts? Will your bridesmaid's dresses be uniform or unique?

    We gave each girl the website, their own color, and a length and they're choosing their own styles.

    I let them choose whatever they wanted as long as it was in the gradient of color I wanted

    I'm still deciding but because I'll only have three (or less) with MOH I'm thinking the same. I'd probably pick the color and get input before making a solid plan though.

    Honestly, there is no wrong answer. I worked through my thoughts with my girls and together we decided on the perfect dress that went well with everyone's height, style, and body shape.

    I am giving my bridesmaid all unique dresses. My only requirement is that they are all the same length and color. I want them to feel comfortable in their dresses since I know that not all dresses look the same on each body shape.

    That was also a huge concern of mine so I completely understand why you chose unique dresses. Luckily I was able to find one dress that was perfect for all my bridesmaids.

    My three ladies are all different size categories and I'm asking them to purchase the dresses themselves so finding one dress in the color, style, budget, and all those size ranges we found is next to impossible. I originally wanted the girls in uniform classic or vintage style lavender dresses but couldn't find a single realistic option out there. So now I'm sticking to the styles I like but they will all be in Navy dresses now and different cuts based on what they like and can afford.

    I told my girls to get a long maroon dress. They are picking the style

    My wedding dress is Galina by David's Bridal and I love it! The floral belt in the picture is not a part of my dress, that I did NOT like haha

    Thank you! Three of mine have gotten theirs from DB, the other three are from wherever else they find them.

    I currently just have one MOH, but I haven’t picked my dress yet so we just have some ideas for hers so far and are waiting to see what I pick. We both like the metallic sequin dresses, and she really likes one at DB (middle in the picture, but she likes the one on the left too) so we’ll see. I am also considering having her in a black or dark purple dress since she’ll be more likely to wear it again. We were joking that I can just wear the same dress to be her MOH when she gets married, we are pretty close in size and height.
