Bridesmaid Dresses - Help!

Recommended Posts

So, our original plan was to let the bridal party wear whatever they wanted as long as they stayed with the colour scheme. We want our wedding to be as laid back as possible.

Now my Maid of Honor has made and excellent point, if the girls do not wear the same dresses it make take the focus away from me (which I do not want!). Two of the girls want to wear the Victoria Secret multiway dress so that they can tie it to suit their body as well as having the option in lengths. This will also ensure that it is the exact same colour of material. But.... if the other three girls wear something different it may look a little disorganized.

 

Should I telll them that they must order this dress or should I go with theoriginal plan and let them wear whatever they want?

 

I'm also trying to coordinate the colour scheme into our decor, accessories and stationary, so this decision need to made now.

 

Any suggestions, advice would be greatly appreicated!

I am having a hard time with this too. I originally was going to tell my girls(have to ask them first!) to wear any dress with the color I want but after looking at all the pictures on here I think it looks so much better if everyone matches. So I am going to pick out a dress for them to wear. IMO I would have them all wear that same Vickies dress. Honestly, I was in a wedding where I had to wear one of their convertible 7 way dresses & it was great. Everyone had their dress on a different way, looked awesome in photos. They are looked so similar but all so different. Just my opinion though! Good luck!!

I think having the victoria secret dress will still allow your bridesmaids and MOHs to tie the dress the way they want and each will look slightly different, but at least they will all still have the same color on and look similar.

If you want them to choose their own dress, try and go with them so you can at least help "tie" the looks all together.  I've seen photos where every bridesmaid has similar-colored dresses and it looks very pretty.  Just NO PATTERNS!  This definitely looks awful and takes the focus away from the bride.
