There is a hot trend featuring in bridal attire right now that I personally find adorable – mismatched bridesmaids dresses that blend in perfectly. I especially love the sequin embellished variations of them in nude colours- very Elie Saab-like! If that’s too much sparkle for your taste you can always simply mix nude colours from the same palette.
Here are a few tips on how to nail the mismatching:
Choose colours from the same palette
This is an important one – if your wedding colours are for example from the nude palette, stick to only these colours for your bridesmaids dresses. The main point here is: don’t overdo it, if you want to have a mismatch that looks more like an effect, rather than a defect.
Keep the same length
You are already mismatching colour, you shouldn’t mismatch everything. Slight differences in the shape of the dresses are acceptable, but you should adhere to the same overall style. I am a huge fan of long mismatched dresses but midi dresses would look lovely with this concept too.
Consider skin tone, hair colour and different body shapes
This one will be difficult to avoid anyway because your bridesmaids will come up with their own preferences.
Where is the best place to look for such dresses?
I would recommend starting off with www.etsy.com. You will find many independent designers handcrafting beautiful pieces of clothing in all kinds of price ranges. Most of them also do made-to-order and would readily tailor to your taste.
