Mix and Match Bridesmaids Dresses
It’s really up to you whether you want your bridesmaids all perfectly matching or if you prefer to mix and match styles. If your bridesmaids are very different then it can work extremely well to find styles or colours that suit their individual looks rather than trying to make them all look the same. Unmatching bridesmaids gowns or having bridesmaids wear separates can make for a less formal and more contemporary look. Monsoon shows how to combine complementary colours and styles for a contemporary look with a vintage feel, with some of the maxi dresses shown also available in shorter skirt lengths for even more versatility. This new collection features several distinctly 1920s style patterns and shapes making them the obvious choice for a vintage wedding theme.
Angelina, seen above left in nude, is a stunning vintage 1930s-inspired full-length gown with angel sleeves in tulle and hand-embellished with beads and sequins that fan out from the waistline like sparkling rays from the sun. Featuring an illusion V-neck and elegant low V-back.
Selena, seen above right, is a sparkling embellished top with scalloped beading and sequins and a panel lining that can be tucked into a high-waisted skirt.
Gwyneth, seen above left in pink and also available in navy blue, is an elegant long lace maxi dress with delicate lace across the shoulders, a flattering cross-over detail to the bodice and pretty lace keyhole back. This gown has a hint of stretch for a perfect figure-hugging fit.
Lillian, seen on the far right, is a delicate floral lace top with cap sleeves, a keyhole back and modesty panel underneath that may be tucked into a high-waisted skirt.
