What is your bridesmaids look? Are they keeping it the same with matching dresses, or are they switching it up with a mix n match look?

    Mix. I'm giving them a website (Azazie), color (grape for the BMs, wisteria for the MOH), length (floor), and fabric (chiffon). They all have different body types and I want them to be comfortable in their dresses.

    Probably mix. I care about the color and length, but they can pick details

    Mix - I picked the color and they picked their dresses.

    Mix!

    I like appealing to each individual’s personality.

    Original plan was to mix by just giving a color and fabric. We ended up going with matching because it was $26 and they all three liked it! It’s one of those wrap dresses though, so they will all have a different top.

    I like the idea of them having the same color dresses but mixing the style of the dresses up. So a bit of both.

    All same color (burgundy) and floor length, but the girls got to choose whatever style/fit they wanted. They have to wear it all day, not me, and I wanted them to get something they knew they would be comfortable in and feel gorgeous in!

    Mixing! They all got the same color and fabric from the same designer, but all picked their own style.

    That’s always a good idea!! Mixing also allows them to show a little of their personality ✨

    Mix. I gave them a color and advised a short dress for the weather and they can take it from there!

    Mix! I’m just giving them guidelines of color and no lace, and they can pick what they want. They’re all different body shapes, so I want them to be comfortable.
    My bridesmaid almost had a freak out because I wasn’t making them get the same dress 🙄

    Same color and same dress. I picked a dress that looked good on all. I hate the look of mixed dresses.

    I like mix and going with mix for our big day. I know my leading ladies style and personal flair. I want them all to not only be comfortable and confident with what they are wearing, but to shine as well and be affordable. Some of my ladies are with someone, so I praying that a few will get engaged as well on that day. I cannot wait

    I love switching it up with different dresses! But my laziness won out with my wedding and it was easier to just pick one dress! Smiley laugh

    Mix - I decided to mix colors (in blush and mauve) and have bridesmaids choose any dress they felt comfortable in!

    Bridesmaids in the same dress looks so nice! There are definitely versatile styles out there that work very well for multiple body types.
