Well, now it's time. Why should your maids all wear matching? The picture above shows precisely how cool mixing up can be (here with sequins and chiffons).
One style is not likely to flatter all
One-color look a little 'samey'
Why not blend colors just a little?
These days brides are beginning to veer a little away from the traditional one-for-all mentality with regards to their bridesmaids. Instead, they're opting for similar, although not identical styles.
This trend is catching fire. Why's that?
Bridesmaids reach has some freedom within their dress choice (is not?).
Everyone eventually ends up looking like themselves and feeling (and photographing) their finest!
Giving your very best gas some freedom of preference doesn't mean that you simply let them go rogue though. It's important to set up some pretty strict stipulations to help keep everything look organized and stylish. We've outlined the guidelines that will ensure most people are happy which your wedding party looks chic and complicated.
1. COLOR - Choose a couple of Pantone shade(s) for the ladies. If you have just a couple (like four or less) you could get just a little risky and allow them to choose a color family (like deep blue). A color story is a MUST, which means this point is non-negotiable. We recommend following a outlined color rule and combining it with a couple of of the tips below:
2. FABRIC - Whether it's lace or lurex (just kidding!) give your girls a cloth that they must stay with. Chiffon and silk crepe are generally awesome!
3. LENGTH - Just below the knee, tea length, or gown length are great options. Something we like is having your bridesmaid wear while the other bridesmaids get a shorter length.
4. NECKLINE - This is less popular, but it is still a noteworthy idea. Keep it ,sweetheart, one-shoulder, or perhaps a classic scoop, and then allow them to run just a little wild using the length and fabric!
