Trend Alert: Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses
September 27, 2012
Mismatched bridesmaid dresses don't have to equal a color-clashing mess. With a handful of fashion-oriented eyes and a bit of patience, this trend can make a styled mix appear très chic. So keep reading, doll. We're about to dish out a few great reasons why this look might work for you!
Before we get into the benefits your bridesmaids will gain from your decision to utlize this trend, let us focus on you. The decision to pair different prints, fabric, colors, etc. makes this look a bit of a risk, but completely unique. That said, the trend is perfect for a bride with an artistic vision, since choosing mismatched bridesmaid dresses can really put their creative minds to work. It's also a great option for indecisive brides who can't settle on just one look. With this trend you are able to blend and fuse the elements you love most about each dress into one comprehensive look. Basically, you can have your cake and eat it too!
We understand that not everyone has an unlimited budget like the ones we so often read about in wedding magazines. Thus, when it comes to choosing bridesmaid dresses it's best to remain aware of all price tags. To keep your spending in check, we suggest the thrill of the fashion hunt. Make the dress search fun by labeling it as a girls day; gather everyone together, set a reasonable budget and spend a day or two rummaging through racks of gorgeous dresses. You're bound to find a variety of dresses that not only fit your color scheme and monetary specifications, but also look very flattering on each of your friends.
Unless you're BFFs with Mary Kate and Ashley, chances are the ladies in your bridal party do not look identical. Body types, skin tone and hair color are all factors to weigh when adding pieces to your personal wardrobe, so why not consider them when you're selecting your bridesmaid dresses? The cold hard truth is that more often than not, one style truly doesn't flatter all. Alterations are always an option, but can be costly and a bit of a gamble. By selecting specific designs and colors for your individual bridesmaids, you can be certain they feel relaxed in their ensembles and that will definitely reflect in photos. Plus, each bridesmaid will be able to maintain a bit of their individual style, which adds a whole other level of comfort!
