Here is how the modern bride is tackling the feat of choosing a dress that will please- and flatter each of her bridesmaids.
Stick to an Aesthetic
To make sure that the end result is cohesive, make sure the dresses you or your bridesmaids choose fit into your wedding aesthetic. Scroll on Pinterest and create a board of fabrics, colors, patterns, and silhouettes that match your theme.
Know What to Rule Out
If you are having your bridesmaids choose their own dresses, make sure you tell them what you want them to avoid when dress shopping. Not a fan of mini dresses, high necks, and tulle? Make a list to give them with those design elements to steer clear of. This will make it a lot easier to ensure the dress they choose fits your vision
Choose a Color Palette
Prevent any color and pattern clashes by having everyone choose dresses that are in your color palette. Lately, it is popular for bridesmaids to wear different shades of color while mixing textures and silhouettes.
Trust your Bridesmaids
A majority of the brides that choose mismatched bridesmaids' dresses let the bridal party choose their look because picking a different dress for each is an added point on the already long wedding planning to-do list. Part of the beauty of going with mismatched dresses is that each bridesmaid gets to choose a dress that they feel comfortable in and that represents their personal style. You may have to give up some autonomy to achieve a flawless mismatched look, but the end result will be worth it.
