Mismatched Bridesmaid Looks we Love

When style variation works beautifully.

Dressing your girls in the same bridesmaid dress is certainly a good way to streamline the bridal party look. However plenty of brides have been enjoying bucking the trend, choosing to shake things up with contrasting hues, styles or textures – and it works! We love it.

Gold and blush just sparkles

Warm hues that are beautiful whatever the season, but particularly autumn and winter, adding warmth and richness to the colour palette. 

Lovely burgundy and lilac

A classic contrast between deep and light that still allows the bride to shine.

50 shades of grey

Varied tones of relaxed sophistication, enhanced with a pop of colour through the bouquets.

Pink and pearls

Similar fabric tones shaped into varied styles for a cohesive finish. Simple hair works well here to let the dresses and jewellery take centre stage.
