Oh, how we love mismatched bridesmaid dresses, especially when done right! Although it sounds like a piece of cake, the loveliest mismatched bridesmaid dresses done right actually requires a little pre-planning on your part.
If you’re wondering what mismatched bridesmaid dresses are, it is a trend where bridesmaids don dresses that are similar but not exactly the same. You are essentially asking bridesmaids to pick a dress they love in a particular shade, typically one that complements your color palette. You can pick the same style of dress and have each bridesmaid pick their favorite color; or, they can have free reign and pick any style dress in any color. However, to get this look right, we recommend providing a color palette with complementing shades so they look lovely and harmonious, without having to be exact carbon copies of each other. Complementing shades = a more cohesive look. Your photos will look awesome. You’ll be happy. She’ll be happy. She’ll actually wear the dress again. She’ll love how awesome she looks in her dress, and she’ll love you 1000x for it, since you’re pretty much Bride of the Year for being so flexible.
And, if you want to add one teensy element that will pull them all together, an accessory piece like this embellished dress belt will do the trick.
