Tuesday Trends: Mismatched Bridesmaids Dresses

via Pop Sugar   |   via Bridal Guide

Ever since I saw Carrie & Big's wedding in the Sex and The City movie, I have been intrigued by the idea of different colored bridesmaid dresses

While the 3 colors are a little too contrasted for me, I love how they showcase their personalities and the styles compliment their individual body types.  Lately, I've noticed lots of brides choosing a dress color/material and letting their ladies choose the style.  Why not take it one step further and change the colors and materials a bit too?  Some may worry about them not being distinguished enough, but hey-- they're walking down an aisle with a bouquet, anyone would be able to tell they're bridesmaids!

One of my lovely brides, the now Mrs.A, chose 2 colors for the 'maids in her wedding a few months back and gave them free reign for material, designer, and all other factors.  The result (as seen in a previous Fab Pic Friday post) was the most beautiful combination of colors on her girls -- pictures BARELY do it justice.

So how do you go about achieving this?  I decided to highlight 3 styles-- multi colored, shades of color and neutrals.  Check them out below and see which calls out to you!

Now, above might be a bit too out there for you (as were most of the things Carrie Bradshaw wore!), but if you're still digging the differing hues, try doing shades of a single color.  Basically forming an ombre pattern with your bridesmaids!

If this is still too much color for you, I have a solution-- neutrals!  Get that cohesive look you are going for without having an army of soldiers in matching uniforms standing next to you!

So what fits your fancy?  No matter what, your girls will feel comfortable, beautiful and fantastic-- which is pretty impressive when talking about bridesmaid dresses!
