    Just wondering if any of you have had your girls in different colour dresses?

    I can't decide on colours yet, but FI and I were talking today and were thinking we could pick a colour and then just have the girls pick a dress, whatever style they want, in various shades of a particular colour family. Then FI even suggested that we have the guys wear a matching shirt to the girls they will be walking down the aisle with.

    I have been looking for inspiration pictures, but so far, have not any luck at all.

    If you have done it and have a picture, or have seen any pictures likes this, please post them, or send me the link.

    I'd really appreciate it!!! :)

      Angela I'll have to dig up some photos for you but Fi's older brother's wedding had each girl in a different color dress with the GM as her escort with a matching vest. The girls had the exact same style in different colors and the bride actually made all of the attire. I'll see if I can dig up some good pics for you!

        I love the tonal idea ~ that would be my choice in blue (if I had bridesmaids). You could do this with any color - do you have a front runner?

        I looked for pics too. I couldn't find any, but I did find an OK example.

        You will need to click on the blue color swatch to see what I was thinking:

        best of luck with everything!

          I like blue as well, but my FI is not sold on it. We both like green ...but I feel like tonal blues would look better than greens. I am up for anything though!

          Thanks for the example!

          Veronica, I'd love to see any pics you have! :)

            I like the idea of having different shades of one color. You may have to show your FI a picture, sometimes men have a hard time visualizing it especially wedding related things- it will look really nice.

                    We did a multicolor palette for our wedding -- ivory, coral, canary and terracotta, and pops of red.

                    Our girls wore dresses in canary, latte and terracotta ~ I did this because I had 8 girls (had 10 but 2 lattes dropped out last minute) and not every girl looks good in a single color. Nevertheless, I think it looked absolutely beautiful and really added a fun element to our wedding not to mention my bridal party looked fabulous!!

                    Everyone had the same style of dress, except for my daughter and my junior bridesmaid, and I gave them the option to wear the dress with straps or go strapless.

                    If you do go multicolor, my best advice is to really streamline the theme throughout your whole wedding to get the maximum effect -- decor, programs, invites, flowers, favors, cake, etc.

                    Here's some pics of my gorgeous gals:
