Why try it: If you feel like pictures of bridesmaid dresses all in the exact same shade is a little one-note, but you still want them to look connected and stand out among your other wedding guests.
How to make it happen: Your best bet is to, again, opt for the same dress designer. You can pick the exact same silhouette for all the dresses, or give your bridesmaids the same freedom to pick a shape that works best for them.
Then it's up to you to determine the color scheme. It's fun to envision a rainbow of colors, but we recommend using varying shades of the same general color, like pinks and reds. Feel free to ask them their shade of choice (your more pale pals may opt for the richer hues), but try to disperse them evenly. If you have six bridesmaids, shoot for two or three different colors.
