Most women have at one point or another been a bridesmaid. They know what it's like to get fitted for a dress they'll likely spend a lot of money on and only wear once before banishing it to the back of their closet. A really great trend that's taking off is mismatched and patterned dresses. Pick out a color scheme, length, style, or a certain pattern you would like your bridesmaids to wear and then let them choose the rest!

It's also really great for a bridesmaid on a budget...give them the guidelines and then let them find something that works for them. Check out just a few of the examples we found below!
