I started browsing for BM dresses this weekend.. I found 2 I really liked, I brought 2 BM of my 9 that kind of represent 2 different body shapes.. one short & thin, one taller & curvy.. they both looked nice in each dress, so I think it’s safe to assume it’ll look good on all the girls. The consultant helping us made a comment, I should be careful because the BM dresses were a similiar shape & look of my wedding dress, which I actually liked (i like things match-y) and she said the dresses my compete with mine.. Anywho, just wondering if you think the dresses look ok with my dress, or if you think they do “rival” my dress.
*i couldn’t get the actual pictures to upload, stupid computers, so these are the model pictures.
Here is my dress:

Not a chance!! You will be standing out in that gorgeous dress, and your bridesmaids will compliment you in either of those dresses.

Really like them both!! And also like that they do follow the same style as your dress. I don’t think anyone or any dress would be able to outshine you on the wedding day!! 🙂

I think they are nice dresses but have the exact same silhouette and neckline as your dress, your bridesmaids should complement you, not compete with you! I would try for something with either a different neckline (straps, one shoulder, sleeves) or with a different style skirt (like a strait or fitted skirt)

Oh my gosh, I love the dresses and they’ll look fantastic with your dress!

I like the one on the left because the one on the right looks too much like your dress

@Petite_Fraise: I think that’s what the consultant was saying.. but I like how they look like mini me’s lol Obviously my giant white gown will stand out.. and in person they were much smaller then my gown, as far as being poofy.. Thanks for the advise tho 🙂
We did try some with straight skirts on.. both BM thought, as a whole, it looked better with a dress w/ a fuller skirt.

I’m not a fan of BM dresses with similar features of wedding dresses and actually eliminated some BM dress choices once I figured out my dress. But, that’s just me.
