    Cancel. Unless your bridesmaids are twins/triplets under 7, i think they should be able to wear coordinating dresses.

    Cancel! We are going to do same color and length, but letting the girls pick their own dresses!

    Keep. I prefer everything to be organized & uniform. I think it looks cheap when bridesmaids wear mismatched dresses.

    I say cancel.... BUT... I wanted the girls to pick different dresses and they all liked one dress! So matching dresses it is for my wedding. 😂🤣

    Cancel... I want to keep the same color and generally the same style, but I would want them to feel comfortable and get something that they could wear even after the wedding so it's not a waste of money.

    Cancel. I originally liked having bridesmaids wear the same dress. But I recently stood up in a wedding and we picked different dresses in the same color (Azazie.com was so easy). Each of us were very different sizes and shapes. 1) It took the stress off of the bride to pick a dress that everyone liked and 2) we all looked fabulous getting to wear what we were comfortable in!

    Cancel. My girls are all wearing different styles of the same color. I’m happy with that.

    I kept it but I don't think there's anything wrong with canceling it and picking out dresses that are the same shade but different styles. it's when bridesmaids have on different colors that I start disliking the way it looks but it doesn't matter. Everyone has their own opinion and we should all do whatever we want to regardless of what is popular.

    Yes and no ~ I want a certain look. I'll give my bridesmaid a color, style like tea-length and lace and then leave it up to them. I want them to be able to get something they can use again. I also very much want them to talk with me about the length and give input on the dress.

    Cancel. I will only have 2 bridesmaids that will wear their own style and each pick a color from the wedding theme, and a few kids. I like it better this way so I don't take time to make an entrance to meet my future handsome husband.💍👰🤵❤

    Keeping… all 5 girls loved the same dress, so we went with that one. MOH's dress is the only one that differs in style, not color

    I don't feel strongly either way about this. We will likely be doing same color and length, but whatever style each of my bridesmaids feels most comfortable in!

    Keep. I only have a wedding party of three. Made of hour and two bridesmaids. I think it will look better in pictures with the tree of them having matching dress's.

    Cancel. All my bridesmaids are having different dresses. Everyone is a different shape size and personality and I want them to all have a dress that reflects them. Same color and length but different styles.

    Keeping so far, but I only have 2 so it isn't as bad. I have a Jr. and she is wearing a different dress.
