Opinions on bridesmaid dresses?

I probably wanted a pastel theme so to have each or my maids in a different colour but it seems to be getting more popular and I’m actually starting to like grey and pink. Would it look strange to have 2 of them in one style dress in pink, and the other 2 in another style in grey? These are what I’m looking at.

IMO, if you want two colours, you should have the same style. Or mix them all up and have style 1-grey, style 2-grey, style 1-pink, style 2-pink.
So it looks more like a theme.

These are what I have already bought. Stick or change?

If they're all the same shape, I think it's fine to have the different colours, although I'd have gone for variations around a colour or brighter colours and go full on for contrast.
In don't particularly like how those colours go together, sorry. But, definitely seek other opinions.

@Lweji Do you mean the grey and pink or the pastels I’ve bought?

I prefer what you have bought because I think it's the same dress rather than 2 in one colour and style and then 2 more in a different colour and style.
You either need to match i.e. dress or colour is same or nothing should match at all and all 4 are completely different.
It just looks like you couldn't decide which looked best so you picked both.

My only thing, having spoken to my bridesmaids about something similar, is do the colours go with them? I found a dress I sort of liked for them and my best friend pointed out they’d all look awful in it (in a nice way!) and I suddenly went oh god yes you all would, it just wouldn’t suit any of them and that made a huge difference. I think the big thing is what do you want, if you want them matchy do that, if you want different colours, do that!

That's a very pretty dress.

Regarding colours, it's up to you but do take into account what the bridesmaids like and what suits them.

The most important thing is will they look good as individuals in the dresses. No point having a lovely theme if someone not pregnant looks like congratulations are in order, or a proper bra can't be worn when it's needed. Also think about footwear, if any of your bridesmaids can't wear heels and aren't particularly tall how will the dress look then?
I would prefer the grey and pink look personally but only small/pert breasted women could wear the pink dress!

I've always thought if you are doing different colours then the dress should be the same/very similar style. Your grey/pink ones look too different to me.
