Whether you're planning
a casual summer wedding with an intimate guest list, or a larger than life downtown soiree, one 2011 trend
to consider is mix 'n match bridesmaids' dresses
! More and more brides are giving their bridal party members freedom to show their stylish sides... and I'm loving it!
The mix and match trend can be done in many ways. You could choose a color palette- say, champagne, blush and taupe- and ask your 'maids to select dresses
in this color family. Or you could choose a single hue, and let each bridesmaid pick the most flattering silhouette, neckline and length in the color of your choice. If you go this route, you should definitely check out Jenny Yoo
. Each of Yoo's bridesmaid dress styles comes in a variety of rich, vibrant colors, and there are silhouettes
suitable for every shape and size.
And if your bridal party is large, consider creating a rainbow of bridesmaids' dresses. Just check out photos 6 and 7... how awesome does it look with every bridesmaid wearing a different color?!
are also fabulous places to look for mix and match bridesmaids' dresses. What do you think of this bridesmaid dress trend?
Will your 'maids don identical dresses, or will each one's style be a bit unique?
