I’ll state right up front I think the idea of non-matching bridesmaid dresses rocks…

I think this for a few different reasons;

Firstly; we women are all different shapes and sizes, all beautiful but different, and certain styles and shapes obviously suit certain body types better than others. So why force your girls to wear unflattering styles when then can wear a style that they look great in and feel great in. This can only serve make your overall look of your wedding better and more beautiful!

Secondly; It adds a point of interest. The various shapes, styles, colours, textures, fabrics and embellishments make for an interesting and visually exciting viewing experience for your audience. I like to think of the whole wedding as a piece of art, each aspect thoughtfully placed for the aesthetic pleasure of the viewer, from your colour palettes to your decorations to all the little details finer details. So I think the idea of thoughtfully chosen dresses within the range of your overall style, be it vintage or modern, cocktail or boho, serve to add a beautiful complexity that can be so eye catching and interesting.

Thirdly; I think its an opportunity to accentuate your colour palette. The most beautiful weddings are such because they had a thoughtful and skillful use of theme colours. These colours should run throughout your entire day, from the invitations, to the decorations, to the attire, to accessories, and into all the smaller details. This adds up to a cohesive, stylish, and sophisticated affair. Rather than selecting one monochromatic theme colour, I think a more beautiful option is a range of shades within one or two theme colours.
