    Bridesmaids will wear the same color but different dresses and MOH will wear a similar color but a shade darker.

    My bridesmaids are all wearing same color and even same style. Although they had the option of choosing their own style, they decided they all like the same exact dress. My MOH is wearing the same color but different style.

    Bridesmaids will have same color dresses but different design. Also the head table will be a different style from the rest of the tables.

    Call me old school-same dress and same color.

    All my BM's-(all 4 of them) will be renting a dress for $80 from Rent the Runway and will never have to wear it again.

    My bridesmaids are same color different styles and my maid of honor will be a different color
    The flower girl will match her, and the guys will match the girls they're walking with, my fiance doing a different tux to stand out
    I also mixed it up by having the ceremony and the reception in different colors
    The parents are wearing the reception colors

    I originally was thinking of doing different styles of the same slate/dusty blue color, but now am definitely entertaining the idea of dresses in the same color palette but varying shades! I am going shopping with a few of my maids next weekend so we will see what I like...I hope 5 girls is enough to achieve the look!

    Since my fiancé and I are getting married in Hawaii, we are doing some tropical colors. Our colors are coral pink and green. I am having my bridesmaids wear different styles of dresses but the same color. The colors would correlate with the groomsmen Smiley smile

    I'm not much for matching myself, but to my soon-to-be husband it is kind of an important thing. So even though our wedding is halloween-themed, I'm trying to find a way to incorporate what he is dressing as into what I can dress up as

    I'm planning same color, a shade different for MOH, mismatched dresses. I want the bridesmaids to feel comfortable.

    Bridesmaids are wearing either bright blue or baby blue. Groomsmen are wearing navy blue or black. Groom is wearing medium/dark grey. Mothers (of bride and groom) are wearing silver. I tried to make it very easy but not identical.

    A little of both! We have a color palette rather than focusing on all one accent color.

    Different shades of purple and different styles. As long as it is in my color scheme, I am letting the ladies choose what they want that they are comfortable in.
