Instead of finding a dress that you love and making everyone wear it this new trend allows bridesmaids to help the bride find beautiful dresses but also can help find a style that suits each skin tone and body shape of each of her bridesmaids.
Here’s How To Mix and Match Bridesmaid Dresses
To help you incorporate this latest trend into your big day we’ve come up with a few ways to help inspire you.
Same Colour, Different Dresses
An easy way of inserting mix and match bridesmaid dresses into your big day is
by having the colour of the dresses the same but allowing the bridesmaids to choose their own dress. This is an easy approach to the trend, all you have to do is give your bridesmaids your chosen colour and allow them to have the freedom to find a dress that suits them. This allows each bridesmaid to choose a style they are comfortable in wearing.
If you can splash a bit more money on your bridesmaid dresses, customised dresses is an option for you. This allows a bridesmaid to have complete freedom with their dress (a good idea for this is to have something similar with each dress such as the colour). Allowing them to put their own stamp to their dress this means that each dress will be unique, let them decide from the fabric to the embellishment. They will create a dress which will not only look good on them on the day but it will allow them to be more involved in the wedding planning.
Another way to incorporate mix and match dresses into your wedding is by selecting different shades of the same hue (possible to match your colour scheme). This is a nice way of finding a shade that suits each of your bridesmaids perfectly. To do this choose as least three different tones (light, medium and dark) and allow each bridesmaid choose a tone that suits them.
Same Dress, Different Colours
If you’re lucky enough to find a dress that suits all your bridesmaid, then maybe a way for you to put mix and match dresses into your big day is allowing your bridesmaids to choose what colour they would like to wear. This is a bold move to do as you can end up with a mixture of colours (if you want to do this on more of a safe side maybe tell your bridesmaids colours that you would like at your wedding) but if done right it could be really colourful and will allow the bridesmaids to express themselves.
Each bridesmaid will be a height and some lengths won’t look right on some of your bridal team. Another simple way to incorporate the trend, is by choosing a length which flatters each bridesmaid. Often you can find the same/similar dress in a range of lengths, this is another easy and simple way to bring the trend to your day without making it to noticeable.
There are many other ways to mix and match bridesmaids dresses so try and find a way in which you think will suit the kind of day you are aiming for, whether that is a simple way or to go all out and make a statement.
