More and more we’re seeing mismatched bridesmaid dresses. Not only does it take the pressure off of the bride to pick a dress, it usually allows the bridesmaids to choose a frock they can afford and will be able to wear again. They are many ways to pull off this look well.

This Australian bride featured on Bespoke Letterpress Blog had her bridesmaids in gorgeous mismatched Rose and Ruby dresses in natural shades of ecru and cream.

Another great example are these blue-hued beauties from a California wedding featured on Once Wed. Notice the similar hemlines and neutral colored heels. Even with different styles and patterned material, this wedding party still has a cohesive look.
