Non-Matching Bridesmaid Dress Ideas

Non-matching bridesmaid dresses are a very popular choice among brides — encouraging bridesmaids to wear something that generally coordinates. Nowadays, bridesmaids can wear a dress that suits their own unique figure, budget, and personality. It might sound odd, but it can be done and it can look amazing! Honestly, I love the way it looks.

Depending on the formality and style of your wedding, there are a couple of fabulous options when choosing mismatched bridesmaid dresses. Keep in mind bouquets, accessories and colors are important elements that will help you achieve a chic mismatched bridesmaids look. Here are some tips on how to keep your bridesmaids coordinated, even though they may not be dressed the same.

Same Color, Different Shades
Keeping the color palette the same works well if the color is a big part of your wedding theme. For example for a blue color theme, some people look better in navy blue, others in sky blue, and others in aqua. Neutrals, include grey, are so popular in weddings this year. Neutrals give mismatched dresses a more unified look than any other color. Bring together this bridal party look with matching bouquets, same color shoes and same color accessories.

Same Dress Style, Different Colors
Keep the bridesmaid's dress style the same and allow the girls to choose the color or the cut of the dress. This option of different tones of wedding color looks amazing and it gives your bridal party a pop of color. You may also choose three or four different styles and colors and let your bridesmaids determine what fits them best.

Same Color, Different Dress Styles
Keeping the same exact color works well for brides who are determined to have a particular color for their bridesmaids. Give your bridesmaids a couple of fabric samples in the color you would like to wear and let them pick their own dresses. You may also want to include a few notes about length, or fabric.
Same Dress, Different Accessories
If you’ve picked a dress that all your bridesmaids are happy with, why not try accessorising each bridesmaid differently with different coloured shoes, earrings, cardigans, rings, necklaces or different bouquets for each.
