I was asked a great question yesterday by Brandi and it prompted me to share with all of you my thoughts.
Brandi asked, "...I have a question for you: do you think it's better to put bridesmaids all in the same dress/color, or in the same color but different style dresses, or in the same dress in different colors? I'm curious to know what you think."
I personally believe that there is no right answer. It really depends on your wedding style and what you personally like as a bride. Here are some examples of different bridal party styles that I've rounded up.
1 color, same dress. This I would say is the most traditional choice. sometimes it is just easy to put everyone in the same thing, and believe me, as a bride you have enough to worry about. It can be a little tricky if you have a lot of different body types but it all works out in the end!
1 color, different dresses. I think this is really fun and also easy. This was my friend Sheena's wedding. She wanted to make sure everyone looked their best, but also match each other and her wedding color scheme. She picked out a hand full of styles and asked us what our top two choices would be. she then picked out the top three dress choices and told us which one would be ours. I think this is a great alternative to having everyone in the same dress but you are nervous about letting the color go.
1 dress, multiple colors. This is a new trend I'm seeing. Great for those brides wanting some variety in their color scheme but want some unity as well. It mixes it up a bit.
