Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses: Now Trending!
Are you having difficulties of styling your bridal party? If so, you aren’t alone. With more choice than ever, it is hard for the Brides-to-be to make a decision that fits their dream, let alone keep their bridesmaids happy. After all you want your bridesmaids to find a dress they love and feel confident in, so it’s no surprise the trend of mix and match bridesmaid dresses has taken off.
With an array of colours and variations, creating a unified look that still allows for individuality can be daunting. Our Luxe stylists have plenty of resources to help match your bridesmaid dresses to your dream. The first step is understanding your vision, so lets get started...
Picking the Bridesmaid Dress Colours
Choosing the colour scheme for your wedding is a fundamental part which incorporates so much. This is where your creative personality can shine through on your big day. Your colour pallet will underpin the whole imagery of your wedding as it will be weaved into your invitations, flower arrangements and importantly your bridesmaid dresses.
In a Luxe appointment your dedicated stylist will show you the variety of fabric swatches available to help you find the colours that suit your chosen pallet.
If you've chosen mulitple colours, it is always beneficial to give your bridesmaids the option of choosing their preference. Giving your bridesmaids a choice in colour, style or both will keep everyone happy.
Same Style, Different Colours
Have you already found the dream bridesmaid dress style? This doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the mix and match trend. Different colours are available in many styles, and this is often a fun way to dress your bride tribe. You could pick two or three colours and have some repeats, or everyone could have their own colour but remember that choosing shades from the same colour family creates natural cohesion.
Including your bridesmaids in the decision making process is a fun way of shopping together. Remember, you want them to feel empowered too and share this wonderful experience with you.
Our top tip would be to stick with colours of similar hues to achieve a look of unity amongst your bride tribe. Your Luxe stylist can give you great options of how different dress colours work well together and help match up their knowledge to the colour scheme you have chosen.
Same Colour, Different Styles
Found the perfect colour but still want the mismatched look? Choosing different styles in the same colour creates a simple cohesion and by opting for mismatched bridesmaid dresses allows each bridesmaid to choose a style to suit them - after all no two bridesmaids are the same!
Top tip: If you want all your bridesmaids in exactly the same colour make sure the fabrics are the same. Colours can vary slightly from fabric to fabric even if they are by the same brand!
Ultimate Mismatch: Different Style and Colour
If you have committed to the mismatched bridesmaid dress trend, you might as well go all the way! Different styles and colours can create a truly gorgeous bridal party.
A popular option is to mix and match neutral colours as they pair really well - in particular nudes or blushes work really well and is one of our favourite bride tribe looks! We've found that a couple of sparkle dresses mixed in with softer chiffon dresses in similar colours works beautifully!
Just remember that bridesmaid dress shopping all part of the wedding planning fun - plus it's now the brides turn to sit back and relax while the bridesmaids try on!
