Best Ways to Stylishly Coordinate Bridesmaid Dresses

1. Identical sarees with same blouses

The ever-gracious garment that a saree is, looks good on every body type and accentuates one's natural beauty. And hence, a saree makes for a great bridesmaid dress option.

Take a cue from these bridesmaids who clad themselves in identical ice blue sarees with golden border and similar blouses. You can choose a different color that suits every bridesmaids' skin complexion and then strut in sheer style together.

Here's a group of gorgeous bridesmaids who made a strong style statement by wearing identical sarees and same blouse. These ivory-hued sarees with green and pink accents look great on all the gleeful bridesmaids.

A yet another bunch of bridesmaids who not only coordinated the outfits amongst themselves but also complimented the bride's lehenga by wearing matching red and white sarees.

Add a pinch of Living Coral (Pantone Color of the Year 2019) to your wedding by asking your bridesmaids to dress up in similar sarees.

Twin in a color that goes well with the vibe of the wedding! Just like these girls who stunned in light blue sarees for their bestie's beach wedding.

There's undeniably a lot of variety when it comes to twinning in sarees. This clan of bridesmaids opted for pink floral sarees with scalloped borders.

2. Alike Lehengas

Lehengas are truly the most favorite choice among girls when it comes to bridesmaid dresses! Almost every girl dreams of wearing a lehenga at her sisters' wedding. To infuse the picturesque aesthetic of coordination, all the bridesmaids can dress up in identical lehengas.

Taking the twinning game a notch above, these sisters of the bride looked damn gorgeous in identical pink lehengas and tasselled blouses.

These bridesmaids looked stunning in ivory flared skirts that were adorned with mirror embellishments on the waistline along with off-shoulder blouses. To amp the coordination level, this girl-gang opted for same jewels and similar hairstyles.

3. Ethnic suits

Heavy or plain—suits are yet another staples in the bridesmaids' wardrobes. And recently, we spotted a lot of bridesmaids amping up the fashion quotient at their sisters' weddings by wearing similar suits.

Don't these bridesmaids look absolutely love in their matching sage green and golden Anarkali suits! The fact that all of them kept their open in loose wave style makes them look coordinated even more.

4. Pick a color from the bride's outfit

A monotoned light pink ethnic ensemble of a simplistic suit, churidar, and net dupatta worked perfectly for these lovelies for a day wedding. If you look closely, the bride's dupatta is also of the same color as of their suits.

For day weddings and especially Anand Karaj ceremonies, bridesmaids can wear simple yet stylish suits. These bridesmaids made a remarkable sartorial choice and looked gorgeous in grey suits with delicate golden borders. Right from the hand accessories to their heels, they kept their twinning game strong. But hey, their suits' color subtly resonated with the bride's lehengas' base but they also complimented their dupattas with the bride's dupatta. 

You can also take inspiration from these beauties who kept their co-ord game strong by wearing oh-so-beauteous ivory and golden suits. We also love how they picked the peach color from the bride's outfit and opted for same-hued dupattas.

5. Pastels all the way

Pastels are all rage in the wedding fashion scenes right now, and they are surely here to stay! The pastel palette also boasts of some of the best colors for bridesmaids which are girly and chic at the same time. 

Here, the bridesmaids are wearing stunning pastel lehengas in the hues of peaches and pinks. In fact, four of the bridesmaids in this photograph are wearing similar lehenga sets with identical jewel neckline blouses. Further, the intricate golden embellishments on the lehengas look so pretty and elegant.

A yet another way to make your bridesmaids coordinate is by giving them the liberty to choose silhouettes on their own while sticking to the same color palette. In the following photograph, all the bridesmaids are wearing different dresses yet look so synchronized because they opted for pastels.

6. Same lehenga/saree but different blouses

Wearing the same lehenga with different blouses is one yet another amazing way to strike coordination among bridesmaids. This way, the bridesmaids will get to embrace their own individual style while sticking to the uniformity as well.

Ask your girlies to wear a similar ensemble in different shades of the same color! It will result in amazing photographs and your girls can choose the hue according to their skin complexion.

8. Matching robes & PJ's for smaller functions

If you don't want to enforce similar outfits on your bridesmaids for a big function, you can ask them to coordinate in matching robes during your getting ready session. You will have some appealing photos saved in your wedding memory treasure.

Decide upon a color theme and ask your bridesmaids to wear any outfit of the same hue. This way, the coordination stays intact and the fashion divas that your bridesmaids are, get to unleash their own style as well.

This one is one of the most interesting bridesmaids coordinating snaps you will see! Here, the bride is wearing an-all gold ensemble with a red dupatta and to lend a beauteous contrast, the bridesmaids clad themselves in red ensembles and golden dupattas.
