Mismatched vintage floral bridesmaid dresses

Charlie / 6 September 2010

There are so many brides now choosing to have mismatched dresses for their bridesmaids and I think it’s great.

I particularly love these floral dresses, and love the idea that you could use unique vintage dresses rather than the traditional mass-produced bridesmaid dresses.

I LOVE mismatched bridesmaids dresses! I think it looks SO much better than everyone wearing the same dress where someone inevitably doesn’t look as cute as someone else.

I agree, mismatched all the way! I’m only having my sister as a bridesmaid, so there’s only one bridesmaid dress, but I’d definitely go for different dresses if I was having more.

I love this idea – does anyone know where to begin to find floral patterns? I don’t want anything too “child-like” but love the idea of incorporating florals into my lovely maids dresses :)

Thanks for your message and apologies the delay in replying – it’s such a pretty idea this and if I’d had more than just one bridesmaid I think I’d have stolen this look myself. If you’re looking for floral fabric you could try Ebay or Etsy ( or a local fabric shop – mine has a really good selection of flora fabric. Then it’s just finding someone to make them and in a pattern/style you like, I’m sure something simple wouldn’t look childlike in floral fabric, and I bet with grown-up or glamorous accessories your bridesmaids would look lovely.

I’m the bride from the first pic and we found all the bridesmaid dress fabrics on …soooo many choices, and you can search by colour, which helps when you’re trying to build a certain colour palette.

Thanks for getting in touch Angie and sharing the details of where you found the fabric – I’m sure this will be of great help to other brides-to-be xXx

Hi AngieMontreal, i love the bridesmaid dress style as well, can you please send me more pics of your bridal party, so i could try and get a similar dress. I guess I will have to get them made somehow, it will be challenging since we live in a rural town in BC. We are doing a vintage themed wedding and riding vintage bicycles, these dress styles would be perfect my email is Thanks so much
