    Keep, they are all wearing the same dress but different colors.

    Cancel, well sort of. I'm not having a bridal party anyways but I'm having some of my best friends be my "something blue" by wearing a shade of blue dress but nothing in particular

    Cancel! Two of mine will be the same but the MOH will be wearing something different. The larger bridal party looks better in the shades than a smaller one imo.

    Keep sort of. I chose the color they chose their own style. I wanted them to be able to wear those dresses again not just once.

    Cancel. I let my bridesmaids pick the style of dress as long as it was a long dress & as long as it wasn’t strapless. I also let them choose what hair style they like plus they could choose what type & color of shoe they want.

    But all the bridesmaids had to have the same color dress that I wanted.

    Cancel! Not everyone is flattered by the same color or shape of dress. I think it's better to allow each bridesmaid to find a dress that they love wearing. I am going to give my bridesmaid a few colors to choose from and allow them to select their own dress. I also have bridesmen in my party.

    Cancel, we picked the color and the length, but we have all shapes and sizes of bridesmaids and I would much rather they feel comfortable and enjoy themselves for our big day rather than all looking cookie cutter in the same exact dress. Though we are suuuper happy with the dresses they chose! They're lovely!

    My answer on this has changed as plans and color palettes have changed. They are all wearing the same style in different colors. The silhouette is an A-Line which is universally flattering, and it has pockets!

    Cancel. My bridesmaids are all wearing different shades of blue with my MOH wearing the darkest.

    Neither. I think matching in color is nice, but doesn't have to match in style. That's my own personal preference, though.

    Cancel. My girls will all be in the same color but they can pick their own dress. I want my bridesmaids to feel gorgeous and its easier to do that when you pick a dress that you know flatters your body type.

    CANCEL!! I am doing different styles because they all have different body types, everyone doesn't look good in the same style.

    This question does not apply to me since I do have bridesmaids. Our wedding will be us and two witnesses.

    I like the different colors. I think I'll ask my BM either blush or burgundy, the guys can wear navy lol, accents of gold!
