Gone are the days when bridesmaid dresses needed to look identical, which is great as your bridemaids will come in different shapes and sizes. Though I do know some people who factor in shape and size when choosing bridemaids as they want their bridemaids to fit into a certain dress. But that is certainly not necessary these days. Now bridemaids can wear different style dresses as well as different coloured dresses. Here we see Carrie's bridemaids in Sex and the City all wearing different colour dresses and different style dresses with the only similarites being in the necklines and shoulders and sleeves to some extent.
So you can opt to go with a colour scheme for your bridemaids dresses or a style theme or neither just as long as your bridemaids are wearing dresses that flatter their bodyshape are looking radiant to be photographed. It's easier when a bridesmaid feels that she is looking her best for her to smile for the camera.
For instance a floral theme for a spring /summer wedding can include a combination of skirt suits, strapless cocktail dresses and halterneck dresses.

floral bustier top
Be guided by bodyshape when choosing your bridesmaids dresses. Remeber uniformity does not have to be same dresses but similar bridesmaids dresses along a unifying theme be it colour, print or even floral or flower wedding necklaces.
