Mix and Match Your Bridesmaids Dresses

We absolutely adore the new trend of mixing and matching the look of your bridal party! In the past, uniformity was always the goal—all of the bridesmaids had to look exactly the same so that the bride could stand out.

Now, brides are coming to discover that pictures and aestheticare even better when the bridal party gets the opportunity to show off their personality through their bridal look! It creates a dynamic look that is filled with life and excitement.

How can you mix and match your bridesmaids’ outfits in a way that will show off their personality and give a unique feel to your event?


1. Use different colors from the same palette.

If you have a color scheme, you likely have a general idea of what color you want your bridal party to be wearing. Utilizing different hues and shades of the same color can create a stunning palette that brings the bridal party to life! This is especially popular for muted colors, like varying shades of light pink. Plus, different colors can accentuate your bridesmaids’ different skin tones and features! Pull all the shades and tones together through the bouquets.

2. Use different textures, styles, and necklines.

In the same way, you could have your girls all wearing the same color but different textures and styles of a dress. For example, you could have some women in halter-tops, some in one-shoulder dresses, and others in sweetheart lines. Or some girls in tulle and others in lace.

This adds a bit of variety and personality to your party and pictures. Different dresses can also help your bridesmaids look and feel their best, because they can choose a style that best suits their body type. We recommend keeping the length approximately the same, though—all short dresses or all long dresses to keep some sort of unity.

3. Use a two-piece dress.

Some brides are choosing to dress their party in two-piece dresses, meaning the skirt is detached from the top. This can help with sizing, since bridesmaids come in all shapes and sizes! This is also a great way to mix and match your bridesmaids in a way that is varied but also uniform. For example, you could have all the bridesmaids wearing the same skirt with a different top ,or vice versa.

4. Incorporate jewelry and shoes.

If you like the traditional look of all the girls in the same dress but you want to add a bit of personality, have them each pick out their own shoes! This can ensure that they will feel comfortable as they dance the night away, and it will add a bit of diversity and individualism to the look of your party. It’s really trendy right now to have a subdued dress tone with a pop of color in the shoe!

P.S. Floral designs are hot right now—and they look absolutely gorgeous! We love the look of floral for spring and summertime weddings to add a light and airy feel to the ambiance of the event. You could even dress one or two of your bridesmaids in floral and the rest in solid colors to add even more of a unique pop!

Mixing and matching the look of your bridal party will give you an attractive aesthetic while letting your friends express themselves—you love them for who they are, so let that show! At Diamond Bridal Gallery, we have a wide array of gorgeous, unique bridesmaids dresses to help you find the perfect look for all your girls!
