    My BM had the choice of picking their own dress as long as it was the same color. Some have fitted and some have flowy. My MOHs will have different colors and dresses than the BM.

    Cancel. I’m not having a bridal party but if I was I’d go for a mismatched style.

    I think something like this looks great. Mismatched but coordinating.Keep or Cancel: Matching Bridesmaids Dresses? 1

    Keep. Not because I care about them matching, but I actually got lucky and all my bridesmaids like the same dress! It's a party dress with lace on the back and red/pink flowers with black. If my girls didn't like the same dress, I'd mismatch and just keep the same color.

    Cancel, I'm doing same color and length but each bridesmaid gets to choose their style of dress

    Cancel. I think it's weird to force grown women to wear matching dresses!

    Keep! But I only have 2 BMs so I felt it would look odd to have mismatching dresses. However, I do love the mismatch with nude/blush colors! Otherwise I’m not the biggest fan, personally

    Hard to say. it's up to the MOH and bridesmaid. I"m giving them the color and the length and they're picking...just don't know if they'll pick the same dress. If they do, great, if they don't, still great

    Cancel! I love the look of mixed bridesmaid dresses! Although we do not have a bridal party.

    Cancel. All my girls are different shapes and sizes. I want them to feel comfortable and look beautiful so we are going with same color and fabric.

    Keep. I wasn't against having different dresses, but I found a dress I loved with a ton of detail that I wanted everyone to wear.

    Cancel. All my bridesmaids need to do is wear a long purple dress. Those are the only guidelines I gave them. The style, neckline, etc is up to them!

    KEEP! My bridesmaids are wearing a navy dress almost exactly like the gold ones in this picture. It's like sisterhood of the travelling dress, it has somehow looked good on everyone. I debated having all the same color, but different styles, but when I went shopping with three of them, they all chose this dress.

    Keep! I'm too OCD to cancel this tradition. I don't care if others do it, but I will not.

    Initially I thought cancel, since I love the look of mismatched dresses, but since I only have a MOH and 1 bridesmaid, they are wearing the same dress since I image it would look weird with only two different dresses.
