I was lucky enough to attend the wedding of two amazing people on the weekend. The wedding was filled with love and good times plus there was so. much. style. This was all down to the talented bride (Maddy) and I’m very excited that I’ll be able to share their wedding on One lush day once the pics come through. But one element that I really liked was that the four bridemaids wore two different styles of dress – 2 in multi-coloured Zimmermans and 2 in beige dresses which synced in well with the multi-colour.
It worked so well together and has inspired me today to search for some other mix and match bridesmaid combos – some of which might require a bit of bridesmaid confidence but I think they’d look hot, stylish and give them a bit of added personality. What I love most about these dresses is that they’re not very “bridesmaidy” so your bridesmaids will definitely be able to wear them again.
Primary colours add some pop - if your bridesmaids are really brave, these three pretties would look awesome with some red lipstick!
A little dash of fire from Sandro
Add some water from Diane Von Furstenburg
And swirl it around with some luscious lemon from Michelle Mason
Add some sparkle and bling with these sequined numbers - I think that the longer sleeves on the silver and gold dresses helps to balance things out
And back to Alannah Hill for a show-stopping purple number so appropriately named “watch me glitter”!!
Mix up your prints – don’t worry if your prints don’t match when you can draw together colours. I’d be sandwiching the 2nd dress between two of the 1st dress
You can’t go wrong with this DVF classic
Be daring in style combining some bad-ass black with a little pretty pink
Start with this sexy DVF backless number
Add a splash of shock with Vivienne Westwood
Love this J Crew metallic jacquard dress. The texture in this dress is awesome – it almost looks like a fish skin!
And close it off with this edgy frock from Sass and Bide
Walk like an Egyptian with these glamourous maxis
This photo (and the shoes – eek!!!) doesn’t do this Thurley gown justice but I saw it on a girl at a wedding recently and it is DIVINE (probably helps that said girl is also divine but I think the gown deserves a 2nd look too)
Pair it with this emerald green show-stopper from Alice by Temperley
Got the dresses but stuck for the perfect shoes? Try Shoes of Prey where you can design shoes in the colours and styles that you need to complement your mix-matched bridesmaid dresses. Here’s a little post I wrote about them a few months ago – yes, yes I have a business crush!
