Your wedding, the most important day of your life is quickly approaching – yet you seem to be spending most of the time pulling your hair out, desperately trying to find a way to please everyone else…
…but fear not, fashion seems to be working in your favour with the latest trend for ‘mismatched bridesmaids’ taking the wedding-world by storm and transforming the out-dated view of the traditional-style wedding.
Choosing a dress which guarantees that each one of your bridesmaids will feel comfortable and confident on your big day isn’t easy when you’re working with a range of conflicting personalities, hair colours, skin tones, heights, shapes and sizes. It’s your wedding day after all so who says you have to follow a set of rules? Why not let your creative side run free, prevent the tantrums and save yourself the stress by giving the girls some freedom with their dress choice.
I’m not suggesting you leave it all up to them as you may be in for a shock; for example you could agree on a colour but the style of dress may vary from each girl to the next – be it the length, neckline or fit – ensuring that all of the different shapes and sizes are perfectly catered for and most importantly all of your bridesmaids are happy and comfortable on the day.
If you fancy getting a little bit more inventive you could switch up the colours – keeping some consistency with the shade (i.e. all pastel colours) – while keeping the style the same; this would work well with bridesmaids that have different skin tones and hair colours.
However, the trend for ‘mismatching’ covered in all of the top wedding blogs and magazines isn’t only for the bridesmaids. Grooms and their best men shouldn’t be overshadowed by the girls – why not spread your own artistic wings, take a step away from the rules of the ‘traditional wedding’ and opt for different coloured ties?
The finishing touch for mismatching brides and best men is striking. Plus it allows both the bride and the groom the space to express their individuality and distinct personalities to ensure that their big day is somewhat memorable and unique to them as a couple.
