From LC to MD: Translate Lauren Conrad's Bridesmaids Tips to Your Own Wedding

Fashion and lifestyle guru Lauren Conrad tied the knot this month to longtime love William Tell, but not before she was featured on The Style Issue cover of Martha Stewart Weddings. At the time, the bride-to-be had not only a gorgeous cover photo and spread in the issue, but she divulged her own tips for creating the best mix and match looks for your bridesmaids on your big day.
By now, we have seen this trend on Pinterest, in a magazine, or at a wedding we attended ourselves. The beauty of this trend, however is that it is ever-evolving: no matter how many times you see mix and match maids, it is done differently. Though sometimes after choosing this aesthetic, it can be difficult to find where to start. Below we have weeded out Conrad's best tips from the article and paired them with images of how you create the look with dresses from our store.

1. & 2. Dare to be different: "An eclectic look makes it more special."
Go to Any Length: "Select one 'maid to rock a different length, or offer it up to the whole group to keep it interesting."

3. Embrace Lace: Though this could be a tricky match if the majority of your bridal gown is lace, opting for color, whether bold coral or subtle greys, can create an un-clashing, romantic aesthetic.

4. Mix Your Fabrics: As long as the color is consistent, a multi-material bridesmaid party can create a visually unique collection of textures.
