HOW TO MIX & MATCH BRIDESMAIDS


When it comes to selecting dresses for your bridesmaids, the options are truly endless!  Short or floor length?  A-line or form fitting?  Strapless or sleeves?  And that's not even touching on color!  While the bridal party traditionally wears matching outfits, many brides are bucking uniformity in favor of mix and match bridesmaid dresses.  This fashion forward option  has become a fun way for a bride to infuse style into her wedding with the added bonus of accommodating each bridesmaids personality and preferences.

Stay Consistent With Color Palette & Length

The key to mixing and matching your bridal party is combining styles to create a cohesive look.  Start by choosing a color or similar shades and one dress length.  Sticking to dresses similar in color & length creates a unified look that's naturally pleasing to the eye.

Don't Be Afraid To Play With Patterns & Metallics

For a bolder take on mix and match bridesmaid dresses, add a soft pattern or touch of glam with dresses adorned with beading or sequins.  Patterns and metallics work especially well for a larger bridal party.   The pop of textures creates visual interest and adds depth to your photos.

Think Outside The Dress

Dresses aren't the only way to achieve the mix and match look for your bridesmaids.  If you prefer to keep your bridesmaid look classic but still want a pop of flare, select one simple dress & gift each girl with a unique statement necklace.  A bold accessory is the perfect compliment to an elegant dress!
