While it used to be common to have all your entire wedding party wear the same color and style attire, times are changing. Now is the time to get creative with prints and colours, so there's no need to shy away from mixing and matching. For the bridesmaids, find a dress site that allows you to browse through not just different shades of dresses, but different styles too. Choose a colour and have them pick a style, or choose a look and play with different colours. You’ll find that some colours and styles don’t flatter everyone in your wedding party or photograph very well, so it’s great to have options available for you and your bridesmaids to choose from. If you choose to have different hues, look into having your bridesmaids carry the same style bridal bouquets. This is an excellent way to create a blended look. Even if the bouquets have a mixture of different flowers and greenery, having your bridesmaids carry the same style bouquets will tie everything together beautifully as they stand by your side as you say “I do.”

The same thing goes for the groomsmen in your wedding party. While wearing the same style of suit or matching ties offers a classic look, don’t be afraid to mix and match, especially when it comes to colours and patterns. There are plenty of other ways to stick to a theme rather than wearing all the same shade. For example, different patterned dress shirts  add great style and extra flare to your wedding attire. While it may seem that multiple shirt patterns could clash, there are different ways to bring everything together. One way to unite the patterns and tones is to have all your groomsmen wear the same flowered buttonholes. The colours from the flowers and greenery will balance the patterns for a cohesive look. Another option is to have your groomsmen wear the same style and colour suit. Patterned shirts will then look more harmonious when your groomsmen are standing next to each other for the all important photographs.
