Bridesmaids dresses

I am thinking of having my bridesmaids wear 3 different styles but the same color. They all have different body types and I want them to feel comfortable. Has anyone been to a wedding like this or doing this with their bridesmaids?

    I think this is more common than identical dresses these days. We gave each girl a different color (all shades of mauve) and everyone is choosing their own style.

    You can pick out different style dresses on azazie and email the link to your girls. Then they can try on a sample dress for $10 and/or order with their custom measurements. Shipping is very fast and quality is good, I’ve been thrilled with them.

    I agree! I have never been to a wedding where they were different. But I have been reading that matching bridesmaids are not as common anymore.

    I’ve been a bridesmaid 14 times and only 2 of those weddings had everyone wear the same dress so it’s super common. All 10 of my girls wore a different dress but same color.

    Yes that’s very common now. It’s gives everyone the chance to find a dress that compliments their body type.

    I did. All of our bridesmaids picked the dress they wanted. I just told them the color, fabric, & length that I wanted them to order the dress in. It turned out great!!

    Yeah I think that works great, I have 7 bridesmaids and 4 of them are wearing the same pantsuit and 3 are wearing same color but different style dresses. I want my BM's to feel comfortable so that's why I love giving them that choice.

    My sisters wedding was like this 5 different dresses in the same color. I'm also doing this for my wedding with 3 bridesmaids I think it looks so cute and if they're paying for the dress it should be something they love.

    I told my girls the color, length, fabric, and store and they get to choose the style. They’re buying from DB because there’s 7 of them and the selection is pretty extensive.

    I told my 3 girls that they can pick whatever length, style, fabric that they are comfortable in as long as it's one of the 5 colors in the color scheme we've decided on.

    I had 9 bridesmaids. My MOH was in dusty blue from Azazie and the rest were in sky blue from Azazie. I let them pick their own dress but gave them a length, color & fabric. They all picked different dresses!Bridesmaids dresses 1

    Every wedding i've been in, the BM's have had different dresses! A website like Azazie makes this super easy. You can pick a color, length and even fabric and just have the girls order whatever they like and are comfortable in. Everyone is happy, but everyone coordinates as well!

    I also plan on doing this because I think it's just easier plus it gives them a chance to pick their own style. My only request is that they all be in the same color.

    I'm doing this. I have three bridesmaids I picked a color and told them to choose whatever they wanted it just had to be that color and a long dress. I think it's going to look just fine.

    My sister did it for her wedding 4 years ago as well and she had 5 bridesmaids we had to pick a dress in a plum purple color and they had to be short and we had to show her before we purchased so she could approve it. I didn't make my girls get theirs approved by me I trusted them enough.
