I’ve been looking for regular dresses for bridesmaids dresses. I love this dress, but not sure if it’d be too much to have 6 girls in all those colors. I’d probably just pull out the navy from the sash or some yellow for other accent colors.
Or would it work to have my MOH in this dress and the other girls in plain yellow or plan navy dresses (one or the other)?
It’d be an outdoor wedding in Colorado, probably have a catered bbq and a bluegrass band, so it’ll be pretty casual. I just figure, I love the dress and really want to buy it for myself and think my friends would love to wear it again (obviously if they hate it- it’s out).
What do you think? Wanted to get input before I bring it up and they think I’m crazy….

Sure, it’s a little crazy, but it sounds like it fits in with the theme of your wedding.
Just make sure that your girls know that it’s totally up to them. I say that because it might not be everyone’s tastes, and you don’t want them to feel pressured.

I say go for it! I also think it is a good idea to have you MOH in it and the others in yellow or navy. If you did that, then you would have a little character without it being too overwhelming! 🙂

I love the dress as well, and I would totally wear it. But to be honest I think it might end up looking a bit busy with such a large bridal party. I’m with hisMrs on maybe only having your MOH in it and the other girls in dresses with the right accents. Or maybe every other BM? If you go this route, you might consider picking a color/fabric/length and allowing your BM’s to pick their own dress. That might give you a bit of the eclectic feel you sound like you might want, without creating a palette that’s overwhelmed with patterns.

I love it. So much better than the traditional bridesmaid-y dresses.

i like the dress itself but i definatley agree with the above posters in saying that 6 ladies
all in that dress might make your guests a little dizzy. I really like FizicsGirl’s idea in having every other girl where tha dress

I like it, but I think it would be too much for 6 girls to all have it. Your colors are yellow and navy? I would suggest having the MOH in this dress and then having the other 5 in plain yellow, similar style dresses.
