One of the hottest trends in bridal fashion is mismatched-but-coordinated bridesmaids. Many brides are foregoing the tradition of having all of their bridesmaids dress exactly alike. There are many ways to embrace this trend.
Same Dress, Mixed Accessories: The easiest is to have all of your bridesmaids dress in matching dresses, but to create interested with coordinating accessories or with different bouquets:
Different Dresses, Same Hue. For those that want to dive a little deeper in the mismatching trend, allowing your girls to choose there own dress and just picking a color that you like. The key is to give some guidance to your bridesmaids. For example, long or short? Do you care if the fabrics are different? The more flexible you are, the greater variety you will have in the dresses your girls choose.
Different Color Dresses. This final option is not for the faint of heart! Each bridesmaid has a completely different color dress. The best way to keep the look cohesive is to make one thing consistent, whether it is matching bouquets or accessories.
