Mismatched Maids

It seems I'm jumping on a bandwagon here, but so be it. I love the look of bridesmaids all in their own unique dress. It always seemed weird to me to see 3 (0r 8) beautiful women all dolled up in the same dress, in the same place, in the same pictures. I thought that was a huge no-no! Don't you want to be the only lady at the party in your hot little number? I suppose it does bring a theme together, and it looks very neat, and you can identify the troops but it just isn't for me.

Anyhow, I am pretty excited to allow my bridesmaids to choose their own dresses (only one has bought hers so far, GOOD WORK AIMEE), while sticking to a unified color palette. I suppose it's the color palette part that is stressing me out a bit. Of course I couldn't just choose yellow and be done with it. I had to choose coral, which can apparently be interpreted differently by different people. :)

So my only potential nightmare at this point would be if my lovely ladies clash, but then look:
So cute! No nightmare after all.

Some bridal parties go a little further than others with the level of similarity between dresses, but all in all, I think it makes for a nice effect. I also think the gals all look good when they feel good. Below, some examples... I especially love the grey. Grey is part of our wedding color palette, is it too late to switch to grey dresses? Hmmmm...

I like the choose your own dress idea. It has made it a lot more fun to bridesmaid dress shop. I did this too when I got married and it worked out like a dream!
