Mint bridesmaid dresses. Jessica allowed her bridesmaids to choose their own dresses (as close to mint as possible) in order to show each of their personal styles as well as to give the bridal party a more relaxed feel. Wow, what a cool friend!
Mix and match bridesmaid dresses in your color scheme. Definitely doing this. Not only does it look better, but the bridesmaids won't have to spend a lot of money on a heinous dress they'll probably wear them again!
