Do you want your bridesmaids to be dressed in the same colour but with different style or similar style and similar colour? Is it worrying you that your bridemaids have different shapes and don’t suit the same style? Well in this day and age that is something that can be resolved.
So traditionally when it comes to choosing bridesmaids dresses it was all about the matchy-matchy. Same style, same colour, simple. Not anymore.. What suits one girl, doesn’t necessarily suit another. So finding matching dresses is a minefield – body shapes, skin tones, hair colour, personal tastes. It all goes into the mix and soon becomes a headache. So we say – mix and match! And if you’ve got a colour scheme in mind then opt for a palette of tones of the same colour but different dresses or you can go for the same colour with different designs, the choice is yours.
To get yourself started I would suggest getting your hands on Pantone chart with the colour you want to go for, this will guide you to matching your bridesmaids to the colour that best suits them.
The way that the bridal world has come along over the years and the way they can be more adventurous giving you more choices is amazing, Designers are now giving you the opportunity to have the same colour of dresses however giving you options of 3 to 4 different styles, so no more stressing over whether one dress suits one and doesn’t suit the other, you can MIX and MATCH with the same color, you can have one that is strapless, one that has one shoulder or one with straps, I have no doubt you will find a dress to suit each bridesmaid.
I know a lot of brides like to have everything matching, you still can but with a twist, go for similar colours with a similar design, I think this looks amazing as long as it’s done right, you can have sequins to silk, wrap overs to sweetheart neck lines,
