I’m a huge proponent of the mix and match bridesmaids dresses trend. All of my bridesmaids wore different gowns in my wedding (see them all here), and I’ll be in two weddings this year where both brides are embracing the mismatched look. I get a lot of questions about where to find mismatched dresses online at a reasonable price, so today, I’ve prepared a roundup of David’s Bridal mix and match bridesmaids dresses that will work perfectly for your upcoming wedding. Additionally, there are a handful tips on how to find the perfect color palette and styles for your bridal party.
DAVID’S BRIDAL MIX AND MATCH BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES
One great thing about shopping for mix and match bridesmaids dresses at David’s Bridal is on the website you’re able to filter all of the dresses by color. If you decide you want all of your bridesmaids to wear different blush dresses, you can adjust the filter so that you can see all of the dress options that are available in blush.
Plus, you can add additional color filters if you want slight hue variations on the dresses. You’re also able to select characteristics like neckline, length, and cost to further narrow down what you’re looking for.
Below, I’ve compiled four examples of the different ways you can style the mismatched look at David’s Bridal:
DAVID’S BRIDAL MIX AND MATCH BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES – OPTION #1: DIFFERENT STYLES, TWO COMPLIMENTARY COLORS
I LOVE these gowns, which are part of Vera Wang’s David’s Bridal collection. These dresses come in 34 colors, including the ‘blush’ and ‘quartz’ options below. I like how these look with a mix of two complimentary colors, and the satin ribbon at the waist pulls all of the different styles together.
Don’t be afraid to play with complimentary colors! Mixing and matching a couple of different hues will add a ton of dimension to your wedding photos, and girls with different skin tones will appreciate the flexibility.
DAVID’S BRIDAL MIX AND MATCH BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES – OPTION #2: DIFFERENT STYLES, SAME COLOR
The collection of gowns below is the most popular way brides like to handle mix and match bridesmaids dresses. All of the David’s Bridal gowns below are different styles, however, they’re all the exact same ‘biscotti’ color. Picking out one color and letting bridesmaids select which style they want is a great way to keep everyone happy. And one of the beautiful things about David’s Bridal is many of their dresses come in as many as 45 colors. The options are endless!
DAVID’S BRIDAL MIX AND MATCH BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES – OPTION #3: SAME STYLE, SEVERAL COMPLIMENTARY COLORS
Another cool mix and match bridesmaids dress option is to keep the style the same across the board while switching up the colors. If you are asking all of your bridesmaids to wear the same style, ensure it’s a silhouette that will flatter everyone’s body type (like the option below).
On these dresses, I really love how all of the red hues compliment each other. This color palette would be stunning for a fall wedding and photograph beautifully. On the top row from left to right, these colors are ‘sangria,’ ‘quartz,’ ‘apple,’ and ‘wine’.
DAVID’S BRIDAL MIX AND MATCH BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES – OPTION #4: DIFFERENT STYLES, SEVERAL COMPLIMENTARY COLORS
And finally, here’s the most daring of all of the mismatched looks—all-different styles with several different colors. This is actually my favorite option (I’m not biased at all since this is how my bridal party was dressed 🙂 ), since everyone gets to wear exactly what they want. I also REALLY love how different fabrics and colors photograph together, so for me, different styles and colors is a gorgeous choice.
It’s really difficult to envision how this style will look in real life (even with the photo below), so look at my wedding photos to see different dress styles and colors really come to life.
