    Cancel in a way. All my bridesmaids will be matching color but their dresses are up to them to choose!

    Cancel! I'd rather make sure my ladies have dresses they love and that flatter them than make sure they look identical. Plus when they choose their dress it will reflect their own personalities, which is why I love them!

    Paula · unique. I'm only having my sister but if I had more people standing up with me I definitely would had them wear different colors/styles

    Cancel! We did mismatched dresses in different shades of gray for my girls — can’t wait to see it all come together!

    Cancel! The mismatch style is so cute to me! I chose a color palette and told my girls to choose a color within that range and choose a style as long as it was floor length. That way everyone can suit their own body type and be comfortable!!

    We haven’t shopped for dresses yet, but I’m trying to get them the same.

    Cancel! I like the idea of each girl wearing something that they love and brings out their style!

    Keeping all my girls liked the dress we choose, will only change if once they try it on, some do not feel comfortable in it

    Cancel (for me)- we're doing mismatched colors and styles for the bridesmaids and groomsmen to help keep costs down, and my wedding as a whole is kinda mismatched so it goes with the style

    Cancel. I love the dimension that different shades and styles of the same color look. Each bridesmaid is unique...why not let them have fun and be creative too?

    Meh, cancel. As long as the color matches I don't really see a problem. Besides, people have all different body types and it can be hard to pick a dress that looks good on everyone. Also, I am not really a fan of my girls buying a dress that they will only wear once. I am much more comfortable with them buying a dress that they each like that is in the correct color. That way they can get more use value out of their purchase.

    Cancel. As much as I really want my brides to match, I also want them to be comfortable. They are of all different sizes so different dresses for different princesses!

    Both keep and cancel. I believe this is a personal choice of the bride. I am in favor of bridesmaids wearing the same color, or being within a chosen color scheme pallet so the photos taken on the wedding day look clean, coordinated, and purposeful. Not every woman had the same body type so asking bridesmaids to wear the same cut dress can be insulting or overwhelming for some bridesmaids. So, keep matching colors, but cancel the same dress style.

    Cancel. Since all my bridesmaids have different body shapes, the style has to be different, but keeping the color the same between all of the bridesmaids

    Cancel, but my girls are wearing the same dress only because the dress is simple amazing.

    Cancel (kind of) I have four bridesmaids, and two are wearing the same multicolor dress, and two are wearing the same solid color dress.

    Not sure where mine lies, the dress we picked out is an infinity dress so they will be wearing the same dress but all mismatched depending on how they want to wear it

    Cancel, partially. Same color, different styles.
