bridesmaids dress trends: mismatcehd gownsBridesmaid’s dresses have come a long way in recent years. No longer are brides choosing matching and possibly hideous dresses for the bridal party to wear. Instead, the trend recently turned to mismatched gowns for the bridesmaids, making it possible for everyone to have the colour they love. At When Freddie met Lilly, the Brisbane designers realize how important it is for not only the bride to look amazing but the bridesmaids as well. There are a few style rules that you will want to follow when choosing mismatched gowns however. Read on below for a few of them.

Keep the Length the Same for Mismatched Gowns

Everyone has seen the wedding pictures with the bridesmaid’s wearing different styles of dress. At When Freddie met Lilly, the Brisbane designers recommend that while you can go with different styles and different colours, it is best to at least go with the dresses being one length. When your hems are mixed, it makes it hard to establish a cohesive look across the bridal party. For example, style wise, you can go with an antique blue Milla Maxi or a silver Milla Maxi, or of course, any of the amazing colours that are an option, but you need to keep them the same length in order to pull it off.
