I decided on 6 bridesmaids who lived in 5 different states. I knew I wouldn’t be able to take them all dress shopping to find a single style they all agreed on. Therefore, I opted for the mismatched trend that is taking the wedding world by storm! My mom and I came up with the peacock-blue element of our theme the day we got engaged. We were primarily thinking of a color that would stand out well in outdoor pictures.
I only gave my girls a couple guidelines: peacock blue and approximately knee-length. I was worried that the mismatched concept would blow up in my face with 6 women shopping across the country in different stores and online. Would the colors clash? Would they match too much? I decided to send them each a little goodie bag to help them pick a perfect color!
My MOH and I hit up the paint section of our local Home Depot and mulled over the shade of blue I was imagining. We decided on a paint chip with three shades of blue that fit my vision. I sent this paint chip, matching blue nail polish, a card, and a couple other blue goodies to each bridesmaid to help guide their shopping.
I don’t know if it was the paint chip of my girls’ intuition, but the dresses looked AMAZING all together!
In other news, we wanted the groomsmen to rock something casual but coordinated. We asked each of them to wear a white dress shirt, grey dockers (a specific style), a black belt, and black Converse sneakers. Then, my stepbrother helped me pick our 6 ties that also matched the paint chip. Therefore, the groomsmen were a bit mismatched.
