Because of the size of my bridal party (9 bridesmaids) and age differences (19-34) in my bridesmaids, I wanted to give them all a choice of what style dress to wear. I have picked out 3 different styles (strapless, one-shoulder, and one with straps) that are all same designer, length and color. They will get to pick which style top they like the best.
My question is - what are your thoughts on whether or not I need an even number of girls in each dress. In other words, should I have the girls tell me their favorite 2 dresses then I will pick which of those two they wear so we it looks more balanced. Has anyone done this in their wedding that has any thoughts either way? My biggest concern is whether the pictures will turn out poorly if it's not balanced, but my initial thought was to just let them pick whichever style they liked best. Thanks for the feedback!!
