Matching colours? Matching styles? Matching patterns? Nope. Make way for mismatched bridesmaid dresses! Although the coordinated and matching bridal party looks will always be classic, we are so here for the mismatched vibes. Not only because they look so eye-catching in your wedding photos but because they allow each one of your bridesmaids to feel good in whatever they're wearing! Let your I Do Crew feel their best in a colour that suits their skin tone, or style that shows off their fave feature. Because if everyone is feeling comfortable and confident, it will show in your photos and you can all focus on having a good time!

Mismatched bridesmaid dresses in different colours, styles and fabrics!

Same Colour But Different Style Bridesmaid Dresses

If you have a specific colour in mind for your day and want your main bridal party to match it, then going for the same-coloured bridesmaid dresses is an obvious choice. But don't restrict your fashion. So many bridesmaid dresses come in the same colourway but in different styles! It not only shows off all your bridesmaid's different personalities but makes your photos more appealing and interesting to look at. 

Same Fabric But Different Colour Bridesmaid Dresses

Or go for the reverse! If you're willing to be a bit broader with your colour choice and have a palette to choose from, then your bridesmaids can choose the colour they prefer. Whether it's their fave colour or it suits their skin tone better, they'll be happier to have some choice in what their dress will look like. Also, it's a fun way to differentiate the maid of honour (if you have one) from the others. Think of it like colour coding! All the bridesmaids will be in the same style of dress so you'll have uniformity in your wedding photos if that put-together look is what you desire.

Different Colours

At the same time, maybe you don't have a colour scheme for your wedding day! We are so obsessed with how these pictures look. Their smiles truly show how happy they are in their mismatched bridesmaid dresses. If your day is all pretty neutral in styling, then adding some fun pops of colour with your bridesmaid dresses will look amazing! Everyone wants to have that fun confident moment when you go for your bridal party shots. By having everyone in different colours you let everyone shine in their own way! Satin bridesmaid dresses are a good choice for this!

Different Colours & Styles
