Bridal Party Fashion Ideas
You can absolutely have your bridesmaids all wear the same gown. But some brides are choosing to do something a little different with their bridal party style. Here are just a few ideas. Remember, it's YOUR wedding day so whatever you decide, it will be beautiful!
*Same Color, Different Style
Let's face it, every single woman (or man) in your bridal party has a different body type. And different style dresses look best on different people. Your bridesmaids may feel comfortable if they can choose a style that fits them best. Some brides will provide their bridesmaids with the choice of a few different style gowns in the same color. This way the bridesmaids get to choose the dress they feel best in, while still maintaining the color scheme the bride wants.
*Shades of Color
A growing trend is to have all your bridesmaids in the same gown, only in slightly different shades of the same color. The picture above of a bridal party in different shades of blue is a great example. You can narrow down the gowns and pick the shades while the bridesmaids make the final choice.
*Pick Your Own Gown
This option might not be for the Type A bride, but a lot more brides are allowing their bridesmaids to pick their own dress on their own, with maybe a few parameters. Some brides will give their ladies a color scheme or a length requirement. A word of advice would be to have the final approval on the dresses they choose so you don't have one bridesmaid in a more casual dress and everyone else in a black tie gown.
