    Taiki:  Choose what you love. You can Google lots of pics of bridesmaids wearing ivory beige, champagne etc

     

    It really makes the flowers pop.

    Taiki:  Choose whatever you like. The BM dress does not look anything like yours and is appropriate. I think it is pretty

    I love when people use white/ivory/champagne BM dresses. They are gorgeous and I think will give a really delicate feel to the wedding.

    Taiki:  I say go for it! I was my best friend’s MOH last summer and I wore an ivory, lace dress and she also wore an ivory dress with lace overlay. Can you tell which one of us got married ?

    They’re beautiful dresses and I like the ivory bridesmaid look too. There’s certainly no danger of anyone being confused about who is the bride and if I was your bridesmaid I’d be thrilled to wear such a gorgeous dress.

    Taiki:  I like it 🙂

    I think the only time I’m not a fan of ivory bridesmaid dresses is when they’re too similar in style to the bride’s, as I think the bride can end up getting ‘lost’ in photos eg I’ve seen a few photos where everyone is in strapless ivory floor-length dresses and it’s taken me a minute to work out who the bride is. In your case, the dresses are totally different in length, fabric, and so on; literally the only similarity is the colour, and so I think it will work.

    I’m having 2 of my 5 BMs is ivory: my MOH willl be in an above-the-knee fitted ivory dress, and my junior BM will be in a floor-length chiffon ivory dress. The other 3 adult BMs are in floor-length chiffon dresses in emerald green. I think it will work really well 🙂

    Taiki:  Lovely dresses, I think they will look real nice. You could possibly give them some colourful accessory like a sash if you want to distinguish them, but frankly I think it will work just fine. Are you wearing a veil?

     The LENGTH of the dress makes all the difference!! (googled pic)

    I would looove such MB dress!!!

    They are such gorgeous dresses (yours too, of course) that I think its great. If they are happy, and you are happy, go for it. Although I do think a belt with a splash of color would be lovely with it as well, but not necessary. If you have any doubts regarding distinguishing, that would certainly help them stand out as bridesmaids, but I agree that people will definitely be able to tell you are the bride regardless. That is one dress I would actually wear again after a wedding, so if I were your bridesmaids I would be all about it!

    I agree, because the dress is short it’s totally do-able and will look beautiful 🙂

    Taiki:  I love that dress! That one is also a consideration for my casual vow renewal. I say go for it! You can have any color you want. I think it will look super classy.

    These look great:
