Are you SO over seeing an army of bridesmaids wearing the exact same dress? Or do you still like the traditional uniform look?

It's time to vote on matching bridesmaids dresses! Keep or cancel?

    Cancel. We’re doing mismatched styles and different shades of the same color for each girl. The same thing doesn’t look good on every person.

    Cancel. I did mismatched and loved it way better. Because that way, my bridal party members could show their own styles

    Cancel, if we were having bridesmaids I would have done mismatched!

    Cancel. I have a MOH and 1 Bridesmaid. I only ask that they each pick one of my 2 wedding colors, and find a dress that they like in their color. They know their bodies and what flatters them far better than I do.

    I'm keeping, but where I only have two I feel it looks better. Three or more maids it's cute.

    Cancel. We are doing the same color, length and fabric but all different styles. I have 3 maids in my wedding.

    Keep. Originally my MOH was going to have a different color dress, but then I found dresses that are 3 colors so now everyone's in the same dress, just hers is longer.

    Cancel. I just have two MOHs and they have very different body types so I would never force them into the same dress. If they pick the same thing fine by me.

    Cancel! I'm a big fan of letting everyone choose their own style.

    Cancel! I am having my bridal party all in the same color but they're all choosing their own dresses so they can be comfortable in whatever they wear!

    Cancel. I let my bridesmaids choose the style they felt most comfortable in, but told them they must be the same color and all be long

    Cancel, for the most part. We did matching colors but different styles!

    I think it depends on the style of the dress. I’m personally keeping it. My maids will all be in gold sequin dresses in the same style. But I’ve seen some really cute mismatched ones!

    Cancel! I'm letting my bridesmaids pick out their own dress in the color I'm giving them! This way, I feel less awkward asking them to spend money on a dress, plus they get to bring their own style to it!

    I'm doing the same. I feel like with just two bridesmaids it will look too mitchmatchy/uncoordinated. I'm going to make sure we find dresses that flatter them both.

    Kinda keeping. I picked two different dresses, and asked if the girls liked them. No one objected. I am letting them pick which one they would like to wear

    Cancel! I have 8 bridesmaids and they're all different body types. I want them all to be comfortable as long as the dresses are all long, same color, and the same material.

    Cancel! I have 6 BMs and 1 MOH, 2 of the Bms are my 13 year old soon to be step daughters. I chose the color and length but they get to pick the style!

    Cancel! I have 7 BMs and 1 MOH. I didnt want to deal with trying to find one dress that all of them liked. Plus, everyone has different preferences and body types. So we decided to do Azazie. I gave them a showroom of like 30 dresses (all same color and length) to choose from and they all loved the options

    Cancel. I let my BM pick their dress style as long as it was the length and color I requested. They all picked something that worked perfectly for them and they looked beautiful together.
