Perfect Mismatched Bridesmaids
There is nothing more inspiring (or flattering) for me than hearing from you, the readers and followers of Chic Vintage Brides. Whether it is a comment on a post, a message through Facebook, a quick hello, a thank-you or to ask for my help, it never fails to make me smile! And it was a reader’s request that inspired today’s post. After reading my New Year’s Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons outlining my aims and aspirations for 2013, which included my promise for more fashion, the lovely Tanya left a request for a bridesmaids post that is so on trend at the moment, and could well be the answer to your prayers!

Tanya’s comment read “… my four maids live in three states, and one may be pregnant! So I am pretty keen on them just getting their own dresses that they actually like! I’m trying to come up with a colour palette for a summer wedding that doesn’t rely on each dress being a very specific colour/shade.” There must be so many brides out there facing a similar dilemma, so this post is for you lovelies! Mismatched bridesmaids dresses are the perfect solution for any bride trying to arrange a wedding with bridesmaids in different states, counties, countries or even continents! So how is it best to do mismatched? There are so many options, all as absolutely gorgeous as each other, it just depends on your wedding – and your bridesmaids style!

Which looks swell either in the same colour but in different shades…..

I think the key to this look is keeping them complementary, colours and styles are different but complementary…..

Following on from my earlier posts on the perfect little (and long) black bridesmaids dresses and ivory bridesmaids dresses (still some of CVB’s most popular) what are your thoughts on mismatched bridesmaids dresses? I love that all rules for bridesmaids dresses have been thrown out of the window!
Thankyou for the inspiration Tanya, I hope this post has helped 🙂
