I think a non-pick up dress would look better. Being the budget-conscious bride, I’m going to suggest a long black gown that they could actually wear again? Pick ups make it very bridesmaidy. That’s all, something to consider! We have long black halter gowns for a wedding i’m in and if i cut it to the knee i could totally wear it again.

i would pick a different dress only because I think they look too much like an actual wedding dress.  But they are beautiful.  And I love your dress!

I like the bridesmaid dresses alot, but they seem a little too “heavy” for your form fitting gown. Maybe go with something with no pick-ups, or a lighter fabric? I love your dress! Its beautiful.

They look nice and they wont clash with your dress… but they arent my favorite either.

Your dress is beautiful! I love that sillhouette. And I think the bridesmaid dresses will look great in black; flattering on everyone. 🙂

I love your dress!  I also say no to the pickups (I feel they are only for the actual wedding gown) but I love that they are long and black.

I’m not a huge fan of the pickups.  I feel like they drown out your dress which has cleaner lines.  Also, you are getting married in May, but with the formal elegance of floor length gowns, it seems more consistent with a winter wedding.

Of course if everyone loves them and has their hearts set on it, there’s always a way to make anything work!

I do like the way that you picked a neckline that matches the neckline on your dress… I think that’s a good move!

I don’t like the pick-ups either.  Pickups look too cutesy on bridemaids – which is not a good look on grown women.  They look better on flowergirls.

I love the top half of the dress but the bottom of the dress seems to weigh them down and my personal opionion is that they clash with your dress. The style/materials are totally different. My girls are wearing Watters Too 426 which is has the same style at the top with a satin ribbon and we’ve cut them to the knee (if you look it up online it is strapless but my girls are wearing it with the straps like the dresses above).

Your dress is beautiful, elegant & has straight lines. I’m unsure if the pick up compliment or contrast. I’m not a fan of pick ups so it’s hard for me to tell. Would you consider a black strapless without pickups?
