Bridesmaid help

Hello fellow planners,
Im having some issues with matching up bridesmaids dresses. I asked my sister (MOH) and my future SIL to be my bridesmaids. The theme is 50 shades of blue so I left it open to them on what kind of dresses just as long as they were long formal dresses in any shade of blue. Well my sister picked this dress (which I’m not sure even looks like a bridesmaids dress) and now I am having trouble trying to find a dress for my SIL that’s not going to clash with this one, but also doesn’t drown out my SIL. Please if anyone has any suggestions or ideas, I’d love your help! Bridesmaid help 1

    Um, I just saw you listed you're having a beach wedding next year. I think you should remind your sister it's not a formal ballroom. Good luck.

    Do you like the dress your sister picked, if you don't and she hasn't already bought it or it can easily be returned I d tell her a solid blue dress, the print makes it hard to match. Good luck.

    It’s final sale on her dress and I just wish she would’ve called me first. It’s been very hard to find something to “match”

    I actually meant to update, we are doing a garden wedding in Hawaii now so I dressed it up a bit more, but still feel like my sisters dress isn’t a bridesmaid dress

    Oooof thats a little frustrating. I mean if you really don't like it she can always keep it but get something else for the wedding, hopefully final sale means she got a real good deal on it. Does your SIL like the dress can she can get one too and they both wear it? Personally I love all the dresses Imani posted, it won't clash but the pattern and cut on your sister's dress will definitely make it stand out. You can make it work if it is not a battle worth fighting.

    That dress is lovely. A dress paired with that should be a royal or navy blue and or baby /pale blue. No patterns just a solid color.

    I don’t mind the pattern actually, I wonder if the other bridesmaid could get a blue dress with a completely different pattern, or even floral. Mismatched is cool to me!



    I would let the other bridesmaid choose her own blue dress and it may or may not clash with the other dress but at least they’re both blue!

    Looks like one to me! Any blue dress will match nicely

    It sounds like the problem is that you left it open to them to choose, but you don't like what they chose! I'm sorry, that is a sucky position to be in. If it is really going to bother you, like you'll look back at wedding pics and cringe, I would talk to her and tell her she should have ran it by you before purchasing. You can say that you weren't expecting her to pick out a patterned dress and you would prefer a solid color. Good luck!

    You’re absolutely right! I think I over thought too much and didn’t want to come off as a “bridezilla” . But I’m definitely going to have to talk to her now

    It is! I like the dresses Imani posted as well and my SIL actually liked the satin look more than the sequins so the suggestions are perfect!

    Well whatever you decide I m sure they will both look beautiful. If you want your sister to get another dress definitely blame it on the pattern, I m so sorry for the confusion I m envisioning a solid blue dress I guess I should have made that clearer but I d really prefer if both dresses were blue without a pattern. Then maybe send them both like 4-6 dresses for them to choose from. Good luck!
