We’ve been fans of mismatched bridesmaid dresses for a long time, so we are absolutely in love with this idea that takes mismatched dresses a step further – outfit each of your bridesmaids in a different color of the rainbow!
If done right, this look can be pretty darn fabulous and it’s great for those who have trouble pinning down a specific color scheme. Not to mention, rainbows are a sign of hope and promise, so the symbolism is super sweet too!
If you are a little bit of an off-beat bride yourself, here are some rainbow attire examples to inspire you.
Rainbow Bridesmaid Dresses
Here’s a super cute bridal party rocking the rainbow look. As you can see below, it looks cohesive even if all the dresses are a different style. This makes it really easy for your ladies to go shopping for a dress. Just give them a paint swatch with their color and let them pick out a dress they love and will wear again!
1. Dresses by Dessy
You can definitely pull off the mismatched look like the wedding party above.

6. Rainbow Bridesmaid Clutches
A custom clutch is always a bridal-party pleaser. Choose custom colors in every shade of the rainbow (neutral tones too!), and inscribe a special personal note on the inside coin pocket. Accent your clutch with a choice of a rose gold, silver, or gunmetal snap.
7. Rainbow Bridesmaid Flower Hair Pins

Don’t Forget About the Guys
Rainbow Tie Collection
As this fun bridal party shows, there’s no need to fret if you have more than seven maids–just add in a couple different shades of each color! Include the guys in the color scheme by letting them wear different colored ties to match.
This wedding might just be our favorite rainbow wedding yet! The bridesmaids took it to the next level by wearing rainbow eye shadow. Plus, how cute are all the dresses hanging?? The guys wore different rainbow suspenders and shoes to match!
If the idea of going totally ROYGBIV is a bit too much for you, you could still do multicolored dresses like in this lovely wedding. As a side note, we love that the bride wore a floral print dress!
There are lots of ways you could incorporate this trend in a more subtle way too – have each of your bridesmaids wear a different colored sash or carry a different colored bouquet, etc.
What do you think? Would you go rainbow for your big day?
