Mention the term "bridesmaids" and inevitably an image of lovely ladies outfitted in identical feminine apparel enters your mind. But these days, bridal parties are breaking free of same-dress syndrome. It began with brides who recognized that not every gown looks good on every girl and allowed each party member to select her own dress style, so long as it was in the proper color. Now, some brides are even forgoing the color provision, allowing their maids to choose dresses in a designated range of shades. Some choose to distinguish their maid of honor by allowing her to wear a garment in a different hue than the other ladies. The effects are fresh, artful, and sophisticated. Take a look at the photos below and see if a mismatched bridal party would enhance your wedding style.
