20 Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses for Wedding 2015

Forget the traditional concept of all bridesmaids in the same dress and the exact same color, this season we are all about change and making trends more accessible and affordable than ever before, brides can remain stress-free without having to worry about getting the colors to match perfectly to just about everything or worry about ensuring all maids are in the same length gown. It’s all about letting loose and getting laid back for the best day of your lives.

Same dress, different colors

A popular theme at the moment is to mix and match colors, but use the same dress, this not only looks beautiful if done properly, but it also helps please the bridesmaids as they will have the chance to choose a color that suits their complexion and hair color, providing that is links in with the specific theme and other dress colors.

 Same dress, different necklines

We all know that when it comes to dresses different shapes and designs flatter different ladies, so if you’re set on the color and dress, but want to make your ladies happy, then we suggest altering the neckline, it really doesn’t matter how many have strapless, one shoulder or halter neck, a random mix will still look brilliant on the day.

Different dress, same color

If only changing the neckline just won’t do, then why not change the dress completely? Because the dresses are in the same color the bridesmaids will still look very formal, but will offer something a little different.

Different dress in different shades of same color

One exciting trend that brides are going crazy for this year is using tonal shades of one color and also using a different design for each shade. We love the ombre look as it looks so pretty and refreshing and is well suited to spring and summer seasons, although it can be pulled off during any month. Because each dress comes in a slightly different color it means the dress can be quite different too, ranging from short to long lengths, a different neckline and even a different waistline and bodice.

Completely different dresses

Bohemian and rustic styled weddings are really helping to make casual dress extremely fashionable right now.  Bridesmaids have slowly evolved from the traditional one dress and one color into a variety of mismatched ideas that have resulted in a successful line up of happy maids. Why not even go as far as mixing bold floral printed dresses, with solid one color floaty gowns?

Special dress for the maid of honor

Sometimes wedding photos don’t really highlight the important parts of the day or the most important people, when we view wedding photos it’s almost impossible to know who is the maid of honor, and with that in mind many brides are choosing to honor their most important person with a special dress of their own, that way everyone knows just how important they are.

Wedding Trends – Special Back Design Details of Bridesmaid Dresses 2014

When we look to buy any form of clothing we always focus on the front and the poor back design often gets over looked. As a designer I can tell you that it’s sometimes easy to do, you are so preoccupied with the front that the back simply just gets neglected. Another reason for this is also due to price, designers are often encouraged by buyers to leave the back empty as we never look at this when browsing the shops so why would we make the garment more expensive if it’s not going to be seen?

Well this year things are set to change as the fronts get simplified and time and money is ready to be spent on the back design. We have seen many top designer bridal gowns in past years, but now the maids have their turn to shine too! Here are some of our favourite and most imaginative designs on the market right now!

Fancy Logos

We have seen so many beautiful cuts to the back of dresses, but one big look for the season is the heart shape, we are also set to see lots of cross over straps and pretty jewel keyhole shapes.

Variation

Because there are just so many gorgeous back designs this year, bridesmaids simply cannot make up their minds on just one style and so have decided just to choose what they want making up a variety of styles in one wedding, which looks great on a photo-shoot.

Bows and All

At the neckline, on the back of the waist and anywhere in between, designers have gone bow crazy and we just love the look.

Cowl Backs

We’ve seen many front cowl designs over the past few years, but now the back is also getting a taste of the same medicine.
