I don’t think it matters. It’s not something I have ever noticed as a guest.

The simlialrity is what makes the bridesmaid’s dress compliment the bride’s.  I’m all for an element of similarity.

Similarity is good in my opinion.  They complement each other.  Traditionally, bridesmaid dresses were meant to be pretty similar to the bride.  The original purpose of having bridesmaids was to “distract” people from kidnapping the bride.

I think its better if it suits, looks like you have done it on purpose! So long as theyre not white I really dont see a problem at all. They are beautiful dresses by the way. I can see why you like them.

AdaLee:  I think they go beautifully together! Is that the Lazaro!? It’s lovely. If it is, with the fullness of the Lazaro skirt you won’t have to worry about anyone thinking the dresses are too similar. They will have totally different shapes/fabrics. In photos, the dresses will look wonderful together because the bodice will tie them all together without being identical.

I think the similarities are great. Ultimately though, it doesn’t matter.  You’re the bride & you’re going to stand out completely. I personally like it when there’s something similar between the bride’s dress & the bridesmaid’s dresses.

AdaLee:  I think it is nice to incorporate similar designs! I found necklaces for my bridesmaids that were very similar to the beaded/pearl belt I had with my dress. Our necklines were also very similar, but the shape of the dresses were completely different (I was in poofy tulle ballgown, maids were in long slim chiffon), so we didn’t look like we were completely matched. If you were wearing the same silhouette and fabric, it might look a little too matchy, but just going off the neckline I think it would look great!

AdaLee:  It’s not the exact same so I don’t see the big deal. I think it is very pretty and flattering.
