    Cancel. Each of my BM’ is wearing a different dress that they chose. They are however, all wearing navy.

    Cancel, everyone has their own style and that should be honored and incorporated

    We had matching but they were universally flattering and the girls were fine with it (and I purchased them). Either way is fine, but if the BM's are paying, then I think they should have more say and get to pick their own style.

    Cancel. My girls will all be in the same color, but different dresses.

    Mismatched all the way! Styles, colors the entire look - my three girls have 3 color choices and can pick any shade but don’t have to match.

    Keep-ish.

    We're doing the same style in different colors.

    Sort of cancel? We are doing the same length and color, but my girls all are wearing different styles on top!

    *Personally* keep, but I think it's nice when other weddings cancel!

    Keep (but I think it is personal prefernce these days)I originally said the length and the color I liked, but we ended up choosing a dress that actually looked great on all the girls, so they will be wearing the same.

    Cancel. I love the matching look but my MOH and JB have different tastes and I want everyone to be comfortable in what they are wearing so I gave them the color and they chose their style.

    Cancel. It can be done beautifully, BUT I let my ladies each choose their own because I think that it looks better. Each lady can dress to her own style while still looking like a bridesmaid.

    Cancel. Same color but different style. The 3 ladies I have standing up with me all have very different body types. So what will look good on my tall, size 10 BM won't look the same as on my shorter, rounder, big chested BM.

    Cancel. I let my bridesmaids pick their own style just have the same color. I’m flexible like that! Lol

    ...Intended to cancel.

    My BP all liked the same dress.

    Joke's on me!
