So we have narrowed down the dress choices, except they don’t want to buy the dresses now. I know one of them doesn’t love lace, and the second thinks the dress is too conservative. But they both said would wear it. But they think my dress should set the tone and I should get my dress first and theirs should compliment mine
Option one, black lace I think we should get these because three of them have tried it on, all of them can order it online from Nordstrom, and I won’t have to worry about.
Option two, a Monique Lhuillier gown it’s so pretty. I saw it in a magazine and we would have to try to track it down to a local store somewhere so they can at least try it on. Have no clue where to buy it, how much it is. They seem to like this one, but are worried because I dislike white and have been looking at champagne,nude, and blush dresses. They are worried that the color. I am not into the whole don’t steal my thunder thing and I wouldn’t care if anyone wore the same color as me.
What do you guys think?
ps; let me know if you seen the monique lhuillier somewhere.

If I were in your shoes – I would get your dress first. Some dresses just end up looking odd together. It’s less about the color and more about the formality. What if you end up finding something far less formal than the Monique Lhuillier (it looks to be taffeta which is very heavy and reads more formal than say a chiffon gown). Just my opinion though! Of the two choices, I like the Monique Lhuillier but if I had to guess, you are looking at $300 (at least) for that gown.
David’s Bridal has something along similar lines for $149.00 (the neckline is different but it has pockets)!

I agree– get your dress first. It really does help with the decision.

Dress yourself first. I had different bridesmaid dresses in mind before I found my wedding dress…so your opinion could change when you find “the dress”.

I agree with prior posters telling you to choose your gown first. That’s really important.

Thank you ladies, I love the black lace more then option two also. I’ve been having issues with finding a dress but I am hopinging I find one soon, I don’t want to risk these dresses selling out.

I personally like the first dress. I think it has a simple sexiness to it!
The second choice looks a little promish.

I like the black dress. The second one is positively awful, IMO.

oh wow! I thought more people would like the second dress for sure just because it’s more bridesmaidy!

Definitely find your dress first. You still have a few months before you absolutely need to decide on a bridesmaid dress.

You should pick out and buy your dress first. What happens if you try on a full laced gown and fall in love with it? Then the black lace bridal gowns will match your dress too much and you wont stand out. You never know what dress you are going to fall in love with until you physically try them on.
