Love the look of bridal parties with mismatched dresses, but feeling a little doubtful that you can pull it off?  We’ve here to help you with tips and advice to mix and match their dresses, while still having them blend cohesively!

Muted colors work well together.

The easiest way to create this mix and match selection is to go with shades of nude, off-white, and blush. Above, this group of ladies are all wearing long, flowy dresses in these colors and that’s where the similarities end. Some are sheer, others have lace.

You may find that you can rent an entire home for less than you’d pay nightly at a swanky hotel. Plus, you’ll all get to crash together and nobody has to worry about losing their room key!
3. Keep it short. If you’re already committed to high-end accommodations or an exotic locale, consider keeping the trip to three or four days (or, if you’re planning a longer trip, make it easy for people to leave early if they need to). Longer trips are extra hard on everyone’s bank accounts…”
