When you're planning your wedding, you're sure to have a lot of questions about finding the right wedding gown, bridesmaid dresses, mother-of-the bride attire, and more. That's why our etiquette experts are here to answer all of your fashion-related questions.

I would like each of my bridesmaids to wear a different color, but I don't want them to clash. How can I make this work? What should I do about flowers? The groomsmen?

The key to pulling off a multicolored bridal party is unity, meaning your bridesmaids should all wear dresses made of the same material in a similar tone. If you're opting for jewel colors, choose shades like emerald green, sapphire blue and plum—all of which look good together. If pastels are your passion, try dusty rose, pale gray and sage. Flowers should coordinate with each dress, meaning each bouquet should be a different color. But unless you want your party to look like a dance troupe, don't play mix-and-match with the guys. Have them go with a uniform look—navy suits, black tuxedos or white tie.
