The Art of Mix and Match Bridesmaid Dresses

The Art of Mix and Match Bridesmaid Dresses

At Revelry, we believe in cultivating creativity, individuality and freedom to feel good in what you wear for the big day.

Bridesmaid trends are ever-evolving, and uniformity in styles/colors isn’t necessarily the go-to trend anymore.

With our Field of Dreams lookbook, we’ve showcased a new wave of bridesmaid apparel to give you inspo to mix and match different colors, styles and fabrics.

Aside from style inspiration, we aimed to invoke feeling into the wedding planning process.

“Revelry is about happiness, family and friends. I wanted to capture joyous moments that invoke the carefree, freedom feeling I have been cultivating in my life.”

Together, Michelle and Creative Director, Dana Meador, created a lookbook to connect with and inspire brides.

“My hope was to blend all of our styles together in a variety of fabrics and colors to showcase the art of mix-and-matching.” Dana Meador.

THE ART OF MIX AND MATCHING:

Mix-and-matching has several meanings these days. What once was just different dress styles has evolved into blending different colors and fabrics as well.

At Revelry, we believe there are no rules when it comes to curating your bridal party.

But, the challenge we often hear is, “how do I mix-and-match bridesmaid styles in a way that still goes together?”

Look no further.

In our lookbook, we’ve showcased all the ways to get creative and up your mix-and-match game. 

“The first step,” says Revelry Creative Director, Dana Meador, “is to select your favorite colors. Our swatch booklet is the perfect start to finding your favorite colors. Then you can move onto what fabric and style you love.”

Once you pick your wedding colors, it’s time to get creative.

Here’s how:


Blending fabrics and prints in the same palette:

 

For our cover shot, we chose to run with a blush palette. We paired our blush floral chiffon with shades of blush chiffon and velvet.

“We really wanted to push the envelope with what we've shown before. We mixed traditionally seasonal fabrics together because there are no rules,” says Michelle.

Despite what some may say, velvet isn’t just for fall and winter weddings. We’ve showcased a way to mix-and-match velvet into a dreamy, spring wedding look.


Creating ombres.

Many brides love the aesthetically-pleasing look of different shades of the same hue, or as we like to call, the ombre wedding palette.


In our lookbook, we’ve showcased how to achieve ombre in the same style (our Josephine dress in Blues) and mixed styles (Burgundies). 

French blue, Dusty Blue and Light Blue in Josephine Chiffon.

We paired off the shoulder, flowy styles to create a timeless, boho vibe in burgundy.

Again, the first tip is to pick your favorite color and go from there.

“By staying in the same block of colors on our swatch pages, you can easily achieve ombre with any scheme you’re loving,” says our Creative Director, Dana.

Same color, different styles.

If you prefer more of the classic wedding look with a single color, you can still mix-and-match by incorporating different styles.

Our Rosalie Convertible dress can be tied countless ways to give a twist on uniformity.

Here, we’ve tied it three of our most popular ways, showcasing diversity in style.

A slight differentiation in style can make each girl in your crew feel unique.

You can also choose different silhouettes in the same color/fabric to show variety. At Revelry, we see several brides allow their crew to pick a style that best flatters their body type.

Rose gold sequin in Chloe, Astir and Hazel.

Here, we’ve styled our best-selling rose gold sequin dresses in three different dresses.

Remember, there are no rules.

No matter what your wedding vibe is, you can achieve a mix-and-match bridesmaid look to bring your vision to life.

There truly is no "right way" to mix-and-match, so run wild and get color happy.

HOW DID YOU CREATE ALL OF THE STYLED LOOKS?
