Super cute! I love black, and wear it every since day, so I’ve told all my guests they have to wear black since I have to wear white! 🙂

I LOVE that second jacket too!- The collar is super nice, and it will work really well for a Dec. wedding!

Ohhh you’re wearing gold? That’s amazing! I really really really wanted a black dress…and I think the family knew that.  My mum and aunt made a ‘preemptive strike’  – caught me in a corner and asked with super raised eyebrows…’you’re NOT planning on wearing a black dress ARE YOU?’  In the end…I decided to pick my battles and gave in to the white. 

I’m a fan of the violet.^^

ha ha ha! Well at least your mum is on side even if it is for ‘interesting’ reasons!

I love the dress! Have you tried it on yet? Are you going to do a veil? – and if so – is it going to be in gold?

Ill be honest, I LOVE that dress, its something I would buy for myself. That being said, I dont think it is going to look good on brides of all sizes. It will look good on your taller, thinner BMs but I dont think it will be flattering on your size 16 or 18 girls. I would definitely have them try it on first, and make sure you let them be honest with you! But, if all your BMs end up looking great in it then go ahead! Its the perfect wear again cocktail dress!

 I am not good at technical terms but the waist where there is some pleating or gathering might make some girls look pregnant.  I am always worried about that with dresses.

You can have them try them on before ordering them, right?

I’m not sure how the dress will look on each girl in your party, but I love it! My bm’s wore black for my December wedding, and it was beautiful!

@crebre: I think the dress should work then. After all, black is a very forgiving color 😉 Here’s a pic of me and my bridesmaids. Their dress is by Jim Hjelm.
