i am going bridesmaids’ dress shopping with my girls (all seven!) next week and i’m super excited! i definitely want black, floor length gowns for them to wear, but i’m anxious to see different styles and for them to try them on!
as i’ve been searching different styles, i came across this one that i LOVE.
the only thing is, i also have a mermaid style dress. although it looks nothing like this dress, do you think it would look strange to all have similar fits?

I don’t think it would be weird, especially with such sharp contrast in the color! I think your wedding is going to be very elegant and glamorous!

I don’t think it would look strange unless its exactly the same fit (it the rouching and such).. with a dress like this, I’m wondering if you have 7 girls with the confidence to wear dresses like these? If so, then go for it!

My sister was in a wedding like 3 years ago and she wore a pink mermaid style dress and the bride wore a lace mermaid style dress. It looked great.

thanks for the opinions, ladies! we haven’t gone yet, so i don’t even know if my girls will like it on them (although i’ve shown them all the picture and they all love it) but i wanted to know if it could even be an option! i thought it would look fine, since besides the mermaid cut it looks nothing like my dress, but was curious what the combo would look like to others! i was scared it would be too “dated” looking when i look back in 20 years since it’s a trendy style right now. i’m hoping the black will help make sure it’s a classic and timeless look…
i’ll update after we go on wednesday! 🙂
@Mrs.Vowrenewal: do you happen to have a link to the david’s bridal one? i looked on their website but didn’t see one like this! thanks!

This is definitely going to look dated one day. However, pretty much every BM dress does, so I wouldn’t let that be a factor in your decision.
I think it will be fine with your dress.
I also think every girl should try it on. Where the ruching ends in the back will definitely emphasize their tushes. If anyone is well-endowed in that area, they may not feel comfortable with this.

That dress is beautiful, I think it would look great with a mermaid wedding dress.

I initially chose a mermaid style dress for my BM, which looked beautiful in the pictures, but once they tried it on, it was a big no. Most of my BM are curvy, with hips and ample behinds, and the look/fit was just too sexy for a wedding IMO. Not sure what shape/size your BM are, but consider a fit that looks good on all body types. It’s a beautiful dress though

I think it would look good as long as it doesnt look the exact same as your dress but in a different colour.

the mermaid dress was pretty but we ended up chosing this dress (but it will be in black). thanks for all your feedback!
