I got my wedding dress picked out just a couple days ago, and now want to get things moving for bridesmaid dresses. I want them to be cheap (<$200), and I really don’t want them to be too bridesmaidy – I am hoping that most or all of the girls could wear them again. My colours are light green and lilac/lavender, and I want lilacs and lavender and other purple flowers to be a prevailing theme.
Today, I found these adorable dresses with a lilac flower print. They are vintage-style, all the girls love them, the price is right, they could definitely be re-worn… but would they overpower my dress? They are definitely busy for bridesmaids dresses, but do you think my dress could handle these?
The bridesmaids dresses:
And my dress, which will have viney straps added, and possibly a lavender belt.

They’ll look great together! Go for it girl!<br /><br />Plus, with you being THE bride + hair and makeup + everyone there knows you, the focus will definitely be on you and not on the flowery BM dresses 🙂

arabbel: Well dress twin, of course I think it can, because it is the most beautiful dress I have ever seen. As some have / will say, you are the bride, you are going to stand out no matter what.

I agree with the other posters. I also think that in a group wearing the same dress, that pattern will blend a bit more than when you see it on its own online, so your dress will definitely stand out!
