Wedding Trend Alert: Mismatched Bridesmaids

Here is a trend that I can really get behind: Brides are loosening the reigns and letting their bridal party pick their own dresses. And why not? Each girl has their own individual style and while you may be the bride you still want your girls to look and feel their best while standing beside you on your special day. Here are some different ways to pull off this trend beautifully.

1. One color/different styles
Like the picture above and the one below, you can give your bridesmaids a specific color and then let them choose the particular style of dress they want to wear. Even though the dresses may be very different, the color is the cohesive element that ties it all together.

2. One color/different shades
When you use the same color in different shades it gives the mismatched trend a more unified look.

3. Different color/same style
This one is a little bit of a cheat. If you want to follow the mismatched trend, but still want to pick out the dresses you can choose one style and pick a different color for each girl. Make it fun by choosing the color that best matches each bridesmaid’s personality.

4. Same dress/different accessories
So you’ve already found the perfect dresses for your girls? Great! They can still have fun choosing their mismatched accessories to go with the fabulous dress you picked for them. Earrings, heels, necklaces-there are so many ways for each girl to put their own spin on the same dress.

5. The Freestyle
You think your bridesmaids have amazing personal style and you trust them enough to give them guidance and let them wear whatever they want. Good for you!

There are so many ways to play with the mismatched trend. You can experiment with different lengths of dresses. My personal favorite is the “rainbow bridesmaids”.

Are you loving the mismatched trend as much as I am? The best part about this trend is that everyone’s mismatch is unique and you can never go wrong with something you love. Happy Shopping!
