How to mix and match bridesmaid dresses

Mixing and matching is a huge trend for bridesmaids! We love it because it allows each bridesmaid to show her personality but if it's done wrong it can take away from the bride. A good rule of thumb is what we like to call "one or the other". Either different styles in the SAME COLOR or same color in DIFFERENT STYLES. Here are some examples of our own brides that did the mix and match trend. 

Kirsten chose Occasions bridesmaid dresses in blush. Each girl wore different styles with matching necklaces.

One of our favorite shots of Kirsten, her bridesmaids, and the house party. She let the house party choose their own dress in different shades of gold. Since the house party isn't standing at the alter we liked that they all chose different styles and colors...it created a beautiful look with a lot of textures for pictures.

Rachel's bridesmaids wore twobirds bridesmaid wrap dresses. One dress that ties multiple ways. We love this dress not only because it's so pretty but it's also really comfortable!
