Bridesmaid style has come a long way in the last few years. As far as being a bridesmaid, your role is to support the bride. That means wearing the dress they choose for you with grace and being by their side during the wedding.Mismatched bridesmaid dresses is very popular now.
However, doing the mismatched look presents a new set of challenges. If it's not done right, you can end up with a very disjointed-looking bridal party. So, here are my tips for how to choose right mismatched bridesmaid dresses.
For example, different necklines and colors but in the same fabric. Or, different fabric (lace, cotton, chiffon, brocade, etc.) and necklines but in the same color. Changing more than that can start to look very confused.
Second, Keep the length of the dresses the same: We've all seen those photos on Pinterest where the wedding party is wearing a variety of dress styles. The difference between the ones that look good and the ones that don't? The hem length. When you have mixed hems, it is very hard to create a cohesive look; so stick to one length.
And different colored dresses are very popular right now. But it can be difficult to select ones that look good together since you're limited to the colors the designer offers. Also, the small swatches on a card often look very different when they are made up in a gown. The easiest way to visualize how they will look together is to check out the full-size samples in daylight, and switch out different options until you are happy with the combo.
