Mismatched Bridesmaids Dresses, Why Not?

Let me tell you why mismatched bridesmaids dresses are not the end of the world on your wedding day. In fact you might even prefer them!

Now I know what you are thinking...everything to the very last detail has been dreamed and planned out since you were in elementary. Especially those beautiful same-styled dresses for your girls, so allow me to give you just two of the many reasons why you might actually enjoy having your bridesmaids mismatch.

1. Different Styles & Personalities

Have you ever gotten dressed where you paused and took a look in the mirror, realizing that what you had on just wasn't your style? Maybe you even blurted, "Yeah this is not it...I am going to change". We've all been there. Certain clothes compliment us while others can take away from our features.

People, especially women, develop their sense of style based on what makes them feel the most confident. The phrase dress to impress has so much to do with the term confidence. When you are confident the way you walk, the way you talk, the way you act is different. Wouldn't you want your girls to feel confident on this special day where tons and tons of photos are going to be captured?

Now, considering that some people are extroverts while others are introverted and some in between the two, certain styles of dresses may not meet each individual expectation. While some of your bridesmaids may run and jump for your bouquet, others may watch along side the crowd, and that is completely okay. Even makes for memorable pictures. You just want to be sure, at the minimum, no one is flashing in those pictures.

2. It Is Your Day Anyway

Believe me when I say giving your bridesmaids a minimal dress code, gives them peace to be able to do what you need on your wedding day. For example, they are free to get down low and fix your heels. So, why not? Let your girls know the color and length preference you have in mind and let them have fun with it.

Lastly, remember it is your special day. All eyes are on you. Each bridesmaid, regardless of their style of dress, is there to assist you.
