I am a first time blogger on wedding bee and have found myself in a little bit of a pickle with my wedding dress and my bridesmaids dresses.
My wedding dress is a Maggie Sottero Poppy in light gold, and I have now just found the cutest bridesmaids dresses that are a champagne color…very similar to my wedding dress.
Is that ok to have, as I have noticed online that bridesmaids dresses are always quite different from the bride.
Any suggestions would be great!

Welcome to Weddingbee! Do you have any photos you could post for us to compare?

Yep, I would say so because if you know the history of bridemaids it started off that they would dress similar to the bride so that on the way to the grooms village if there were any kidnappers or someone who might try to steal her dowry they would not so obviously know which one was the bride.
Also there was a Roman law that required witnesses at weddings and women to dress similar to the bride to confuse and protect the bride from evil spirits.
There you go, learn something new everyday 🙂
p.s. I know I am a nerd, not sure how I knew this in the first place though.

Thank you for replying my post! Here are some pics…
This is my wedding dress, the Maggie Sottero Poppy in light gold. It looks quite creamy champagne in real life, but looks similar to this.

Above is a photo (sorry for the poor quality) of the bridesmaids dresses. They are described as a champagne color, however are very similar to my wedding dress, just a shade duskier rose/brown.
I think they look really cute on, however a bit concerned as I have never seen a wedding where the bride and bridesmaids looked too similar.

I agree that it’ll look lovely. It’s clear who is the bride and who the maids are from the dresses so I don’t see an issue- go with what you like, that’s what’s important 🙂

I think this will actually look more elegant/classy than anything. Go for it!

I think it will be great! Weddings these days are really about what you want, not about convention. I think it’ll be beautiful for you to be just a bit different, but in harmony with the maids.
