Brides always tell us, ‘the effortless look takes a lot of effort’! The art of mismatching bridesmaid styles is strategic, and it is not the vision for every bride. However, it is a knockout look when styled right. Many brides are wanting this look, but have no clue where to start. At Bella Bridesmaids, we understand that some brides want to give their bridal party creative license to pick their own style, within a set of guidelines. Many brides are mindful of bridesmaid’s individual taste, body type and budget. We are here today with two different bridal party looks that are on trend with ‘mismatched ‘maids’. For each look we chose a color palate and worked with an inspiration picture.
