With bridesmaids’ fashion changing rapidly to best reflect the uniqueness of every woman, a trend is emerging for the mismatched bridesmaids’ dresses, and we absolutely LOVE it! More and more we see brides working with as many as five different shades in their wedding palette. However, there’s one main rule you should keep in mind if you are willing to embrace this daring trend: if you are going for the mismatched dresses, it is essential to have at least one uniting element. This can be anything from embroidery, to shoes, or accessories! Here are three tools to help you shop for the perfect selection of mismatched bridesmaids’ dresses:
1. Find dresses with similar detailing. Start off with dresses of the same colour but different styles. Then you can try dresses of the same style but in different shades. If your dresses are all different styles and colours, try finding a uniting detail. Maybe it’s the tulle overskirt, the hemline, or the sweetheart neckline? Can’t find anything on the dresses? Try adding a belt, shoes, or even identical hairstyles! Nothing says #squadgoals like matching up-dos.
2. Try shopping for your selection of mismatched dresses from the same designer. More often then not, designers have unique signature looks. Whether it’s the designer’s fabric choices, embroidery, or distinct lines, it will unify your selection of dresses for you.
3. Don’t forget about the accessories! Sometimes all it takes is some matching bracelets. Try experimenting with matching hairpieces, jewelry, or some face glitter? Well maybe not face glitter (unless Lady Gaga is coming to your wedding), but try our other suggestions!
