Bridesmaids: different styles in a few different shades

Hi all, I'm bored and scrolling through Pinterest. I'd love to see photos of your wedding party if everyone wore a different outfit. I'm having mine do shades of light blue and green, but they can do any style from any store. About half of them have their outfits and the other half are still deciding. I'm so excited to see it all come together!

    So pretty! I'm having 3 also (my sis and my fiancé's). I heard a photographer say 3–4 is the number that photographs best!

    Soooo pretty!!! Wish I had thought about that!! My girls did same color (Bellini from David’s Bridal) but whatever style they wanted. Different shoes, whatever jewelry and hair they wanted. My little sister is special needs and I picked a jumpsuit for her with a crystal headband. She was so excited!!Bridesmaids: different styles in a few different shades 5

    Unless done right this can end up looking very disorganized and rather distracting for guests. As a guest I would be paying more attention to what the bridesmaids were wearing than the bride and groom. We didn't do this, but my photographer recently photographed a wedding that the bride just had the girls wear pinkish dresses and I think it looks awful. It looks like the girls just picked a dress from their closest without any real thought behind it. I think the only way to pull this off is if you have the length and fabrics consistent so like either all long or all short dresses. The mixture of so many different elements just doesn't look good in my opinion.

    Yeah that makes sense. I didn't want to get too specific with my ask because my sister is totally not interested in the bridesmaid thing. They've all picked something long, but from different stores. Hopefully it works.

    If your sister wasn't interested then she shouldn't have been a bridesmaid. I would recommend having a get together with your girls to make sure you like how it all looks together rather than waiting until your wedding day and realizing you hate it and at that point it is too late.

    If she's not interested then let it be.

    Yeah. She already got an outfit she likes, and there's tons of time to exchange it if anyone changes their mind. They don't need to do anything else. Smiley smile

    I can tell one has a lighter shade. Depends on how the photographer edits them. The bouquets look perfect with them!

    I'm doing something similar too! I have three bridesmaids and chose three different shades of blue from Azazie for them to wear - my goal is an ombre/watercolor look. Style of dress (as long as they're all the same length), shoes, etc. is all up to them and what they're comfortable wearing. I love the blues and greens together, it reminds me of seaglass Smiley smile

    I think different shades and styles together looks messy so I’ll be picking the same color and same dress for them all to wear! I have 7 bridesmaids and when my friend let us pick our own dresses for her wedding but no one could have the same dress it was a nightmare in my opinion. I felt it would have been easier if they just said this is the dress and color, just go pick your size. I’ll let my girls wear what shoes they want as long as they’re nude and I’ll just give them guidelines for hair like all up or down or half up half down but whatever looks best on their face shape they can pick!

    If you are having them pick the color and dress I would make sure it's from the same line or brand so it doesn't look so random.

    I think it's a great idea, as long as you give guidelines. Don't just say "green" if you want mint shades, ya know? I'm sure it'll be gorgeous!
