I LOVE IT! The sash and gold heels with glam it up w/o looking too casual. I think its great you are getting something they can wear again. Im doing the same concept. Have you had a chance to see the dress in real person? I like it and It will look beautiful with your dress!

Sorry, a wee bit confused– you say your dress is the same as Lovebug’s, but the link you posted is to Ladybug? Either way I think the bm dress is sweet… πŸ™‚

SOO pretty! I love it.  It could pass as semi-formal or Casual, so I think it would be fine.  I also love the modern look!

I like the BM dress a lot!  but I have to say I think the girls dresses will look a little on the casual side next to your gown.

Thanks for fixing the link! I’m glad you meant Lovebug’s dress… that’s one nice little confection! I think the bm dress you like is fine- frankly the wedding gown is quite elaborate, and it will be difficult to find something at the same level of formality. Cocktail length dresses are appropriate for events up to black tie, so once paired with great accessories, hair and makeup your bms will totally look the part. If you’re still having doubts I recommend looking at LB’s wedding photos, especially the reception pics. There’s several girls (guests) wearing simple cocktail dresses in the same shot as LB and everyone looks great.

I’m going to agree with Lattelove on this one – your dress is very formal so the Jcrew dress just looks a little too casual, IMO. If your wedding is at night I would definitely consider a longer/more formal dress for your girls.

Also keep in mind: how do your guests dress? Are they formal people? Will some of the ladies come in long gowns?

(the dresses from Mrs Daffodil’s cousin’s wedding would look fabulous with your dress!)

I think the BM dress looks a little to casual- the cut reminds me of business attire.

I think long and flowing would be a better compliment to your dress.

I agree, the cut AND the cotton is very casual no matter how you "glam" it up. Cotton is cotton you can’t do much about that, adding to it a lot could become more work and look like your trying to hard to make it match. Your dress is Ultra formal and beautiful by the way, I just think your maids might look like they are from a different wedding, ya know? Good luck!

Great look, but I agree though, a tad casual.

I love that bridesmaid’s dress! I think it’s very pretty, and would be perfect for a garden party, but I agree that next to your gown, your girls are going to look a little under-dressed. Will your ceremony/reception be daytime or evening?

I think that dress would be perfect for a rehearsal dinner, though! depending on the price, could they be your gifts to your maids, rather than their bridesmaids’ dresses for the wedding?

Good luck! I hope you’ll let us know what you decide!
