Bee’s, the BM dresses… it’s giving me neck pain just thinking about it. For various reasons we had to delay the BM dress ordering. It’s put a lot of stress on me. I have an appt at a Bridal Salon in 2 weeks for BM dresses but they were upfront in telling me that they were unsure if I would be too late in ordering (not surprising).
My BM sent me this dress from a store. I really like it. It goes nicely with my dress (thank you Bee’s who commented on the other thread), but it wasn’t the exactly color scheme I wanted. I want 2 girls in black and 2 girls in silver. This dress only comes in black. This weekend I finally was okay with it and I figured I’ll change the ribbon colors (2 silver and 2 blush) and add matching pashmina’s. Well, one of my BM’s told me she is PG! So, I’m not sure what do now!
This is the dress that I finally decided on (although we have not seen it in person yet)
Now, I’m considering changing 2 girls to this (including the PG one)
But, idk if I like the silver one! It seems matronly to me? If you were 5 months PG, would you wear the black one? Idk what to do or think or plan for!!
My wedding is modern, glam and couture. Idk if the silver one throws that off.
For the record, here is my dress:
How does this look? Should I just stick with the black? My PG friend is not sure what she wants to wear.

If you’re going for modern, glam, couture, I’d pick the style of the black dress. The silver dress looks too matronly and doesn’t say modern, glam or couture. I think the black dress definitely says couture and the ruffles ties in with your dress better.

I think both dresses are really nice. I’m not into having the BM dresses “go” in styles. But, I do think they play off each other well. And I think the silver one would be better for a pregnant BM.
Honestly, though, given what your dress is, I think both might be a bit too casual. I think it’s because of the length.

I think the black dress is the best choice. A lot of women have only just started showing at 5 months, so while she may need a bigger size due to any pregnancy weight gain, she won’t have a basketball stomach that wouldn’t fit the dress. But if your wedding is in October, that’s 6 months away – how could she only be 5 mo pregnant by then? Did I misread?
Either way, unless you PG friend is uncomfortable with it, I’d go with the black.

@baliahi1029: Nope, I never changed my wedding date in WB : ) So you didn’t misread.
Okay, I’m going to consider the black dress only : ) Thanks bees!

I love the black dress and it is in keeping with your own. You don’t seem to like silver one enough for it to be a contender so why not just ditch it!! I would actually put the three of them in the black one you like and get a simple black pregnancy dress as a standby for miss pregnant if she doesn’t fit the proper one at the time. I think you would get away with that. You could always add ruffles or whatever to hers. Perhaps there could be silver incorporated in some other way to the outfit or in bouquet.

@bridallily: My thoughts exactly! The black standby dress is a great idea! I am considering swapping out the black ribbon sash for silver : ) Thanks again! I’ve offically ditched the silver dress. The BM’s love the black one. Success!! YAY!

Also if you were doing the whole silver sash thing you could buy one for pregnant bridesmaid too and it wouldn’t necessarily matter if she had black maternity dress on with it. I think they make quite dressy ones so that pregnant ladies can go out to events or whatever! People would just see black dresses with the silver. It would all work as a whole. It could look quite sweet having one bridesmaid with a bump!

Love your wedding dress!! I actually don’t feel like the silver dress is too matronly, per se, but next to the black one, it’s just not as exciting. :/ Love the black one!

Pengoala- I agree!! Next to the black one it seems dull or tacking that extra detail. Thanks for the dress compliment, I love her!
bridallily- great idea on the sash! The PG bridesmaid is going to order her dress, but if it doesn’t work out then she’ll just use her sash and put it on the black standby dress. She can return it before the wedding or just keep it for post pregnancy.
You ladies rock! What would I do without you : )
