Why hello, lovelies! Today we’re talking about a trend that I am huge fan of – mixed bridesmaid dresses! It’s a bit different from the all-one-designer, different styles look (though that’s lovely, too!). No, today we’re talking about any designer, any style — but all matching in tone or color. Not only is it an extremely stylish option, it’s a great way to ensure that your bridesmaids feel as beautiful on your wedding day as you do (well, almost — no one can top the bride’s glow!). Even celebs love giving their gals a little freedom with their dress choice. Most recently Molly Sims chose this fashion option, her bridesmaids each wore a different Elizabeth Kennedy floor-length dress.
There are so ways to incorporate the mixed bridesmaids look into your wedding day style. You can opt for the monochromatic look, with all your maids in coordinating shades of one color, or go a little crazy and let them choose their own style completely. Either way, I know your BFFs will be sure to thank you!
P.S. Worried your ‘maids might not want the responsibility of choosing their own gown, or might be confused by the open-ended request? Feel free to shoot them an email with some suggested dresses — but emphasize that these are just examples, and they’re welcome to find their own frock.

What do y’all think? Would/will you give your girls a little freedom when it comes to picking their own dresses?
