Choose Colors That Coordinate – Boho Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses

First, the most important aspect of this trend, is choosing a color theme. Throughout the weddings I’ve seen, brides often will choose a color and go with various shades within that color family, or a variety of colors that coordinate well. For this Bohemian inspired wedding, the bride opted for a warm rust color and various shades. It lent well to the idea of letting each wedding party member have their own moment. It’s also a great way to provide depth in a photo without everyone blending in together. Pinterest is a great spot to look for inspiration on this! If you’re looking for dresses that fit the bill, I would look at Lulu’s, Aritzia, or David’s Bridal.

Same Dress – Different Colors

Another super popular option is having your wedding party wear the same dress in different colors! This is a great way to ensure that everyone’s dresses will look cohesive and allows you to control the overall vibe. This would be a fun day to bring your girls together and go try on dresses together! Most dress shops will have tons of color options and color swatches in store to get a better vision. Don’t be afraid of this looking too matchy as the variety of colors will provide enough of a difference. Oftentimes your guests won’t even realize it’s the same dress until hours into the event. Colors play a huge role in tricking our eyes.

Mix of Styles and Colors

This is the perfect option for the bride who trusts her bridesmaids! Give your bridesmaids a specific color and let them choose their own dress. Most brides will give their wedding party a dress length so they’re all similar in that respect. When everyone comes together it’s such a beautiful and unique look it really stands out. I love this idea because it gives you more of an opportunity to show off those beautiful wedding colors you spent nights choosing between!
