Hi Guys My 3 bridesmaids are very different and i was wondering is it totally ridiculous to put them in different dresses? Obviously i wouldnt have the dresses completely a million miles away from each other or looking odd beside each other! Has anyone ever seen this or considered it other than in The Sex and The City movie? ha Thanks Suz :xox

Hey! I've got two bridesmaids and they're very different shapes - I've said as long as their the same colour (black) and the same material, I think it might be better if they do get different dresses so they're both comfortable...I'd make sure the dresses compliment eachother and have a similar 'look' to them but other than that defo!

I am having 3 bridemaids who are all different. We have chosen a colour, material and lenght and I have a dressmaker to make them all a dress with a different top that they like and that will suit them.

I always loved that part of sex and the city!! I say go for it. I have 4 BM's and we've ended up with same dress but 2 colours. They are all happy so I'm happy :o0

Our best friends recently got married they had 4 bridesmaids. Same exact dress but 1 purple 1 pink 1 green and 1 blue it was pretty cool. the groomsmen had a matching cravat to their bm

Hiya.. I had three bridesmaids in three different colour but same style dresses and they looked deadly. They all wore the same multicoloured shoes to tie them all together. Turned out fantastic in the photos. I can send you photos if you want a better idea.
