Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses

Gone were the days when bridesmaids wear gowns with the same design and color. The trend now is is having mismatched entourage dresses, where all the bridesmaids wear the same colored gowns but with different necklines. Sometimes the bride shoulders the cost of the gowns, while others let the entourage pay for their dresses. The bride would just give the cloth for the dresses or find an affordable dressmaker to sew the gowns.

At first I thought that I'd like to have my bridesmaids wear my chosen designs for them. But I've heard a lot of horror stories about pasaway bridesmaids who'd complain about their gowns or would have trouble with the schedule of the measurement-taking. I don't want to experience that source of stress during our wedding preps. Plus, I  have no idea if my chosen designs would look good on all of them since they all have different body types. I really don't trust my limited fashion sense. Haha!

And so I thought of having mismatched bridesmaid dresses, but with a twist! I'd let them wear gowns that have different necklines AND different shades of color. That way, my entourage would have the freedom to choose their gown for my wedding. They can have it tailor-made to whatever design they'd like or they can just buy off the rack. Their gowns don't have to match; my only requirement for them is to have a turquoise cocktail dress, or at least a gown in that shade. This is the look that I'm going for.

See how pretty and happy they look? I love how the dresses give a variety of colors in the picture. It's a refreshing break from the usual bridesmaids-wearing-the-same-dress thing. Having mismatched gowns also gives a fun and laidback vibe, which is exactly what I want for my wedding. Plus, it makes my life much easier because my bridesmaids will be the ones who'll pick and pay for their gowns. Less stress and hassle equals one happy bride! :) 

Here are my other favorite pegs for mismatched bridesmaid gowns.

Some brides take the mismatched gown trend even further by having their bridesmaids wear gowns in different colors all together! Think of it as a rainbow effect. It's just so chic and cool! :)
