Bridesmaid dresses debate..

Me and my mum have had this discussion a few times - each time coming to the same conclusion - we don't agree.
I want to decide the colour of the bridesmaid dresses, but let them pick the style and length of the dresses. Each one of my bridesmaids is a different size, shape and height so to try and get them all in the same dress is going to be a nightmare. (if they choose the same dress though then it isn't a problem) but my mum thinks that they should all be the same and all be in long dresses.

Obviously the decision comes down to me, cause I am (well me and David are) paying for them so I know that I am going to get it my way but I just wondered what you think. Should bridesmaids be uniform and identical?

I don't think that it will effect the photos in anyway - I actually like the differences. Also the dresses are going to be given to them as their gift for being there for me on the most important day of my life so surely it should be something they like and will want to wear again.

I like something like this:

What do you think?



  1. Personally I think it's a good idea to have the same colour but let them all pick their own styles. As you say, everyone's a different shape and we all like/suit different styles, so there's no point forcing people into dresses that won't flatter them or they won't be comfortable in. Maybe have them all the same length, though, if possible?

    Thanks for the comment.
    I just realised that the pictures I have posted show all the dresses the same length, so subconciously I think that is what I want.
    Definately do not want long dresses though - unless they want them - everyone should be able to dance at the party, well except me that is.
    Ha ha
