Opinion: Varying Bridesmaids Dresses

27 May

I’ve seen bridal parties with varying bridesmaids dresses, meaning the bridesmaids all wear a different dress- either unique styles in the same shade/fabric

via Green Wedding Shoes

or completely different dresses in the same color

via Style Me Pretty Destinations

or completely different dresses that somehow all go.

via The Wedding Chicks

What do you think of this option? Personally, I am a perfectionist and would want to be in the same dress as the other girls to be unified (perhaps I should say, anal, not a a perfectionist, haha). Then again, having the choice to pick my dress is nice; one of my brides let us choose our own dress in the same color & designer.

Do you appreciate having the option to pick your own dress, or do you think the bride should just do what she wants to do?

    I think everyone looks their best when they’re in a dress that fits their body type, so I’m all for varying dresses — as long as they’re the same fabric and color

    I’ve never enjoyed the idea of putting gals all in the same dress. Most people don’t have the luck of having a party of girls that will all look fabulous in the same dress. My party consists of:

    – 5’9″, size 4
    – 5’8″, size 9
    – 5’2″, size 12

    One is busty, the other is flat. One has great shoulders and likes to show them off, the other has a great pair of stems.

    Due to this I decided first to have them all pick a dress from the same designer/color and then decided against it. Now the girls are being encouraged to hunt down vintage-y brown cocktail length dresses for as little or as much as they’d like to spend.

    In other news, I didn’t realize you had a blog dedicated to Bridesmaids as well. I’m very excited to add this to my Google Reader 🙂
