    @mscuppycake:  my fashion sense also isnt great. So, you may want to take my opinion with a grain of salt but i will give it to you anyway LOL. I am very plain jane. anyway, I think the dress is off. It doesnt make sense for a beach wedding and the fit doesnt seem to flattering. I dont think it works. Since I dont know much about your wedding I really cannot suggest anythign else though. I think of more of a flowy and light colored dress for a beach wedding in mexico though

    I picture something in chiffon, the length, color and design depends more on the details of your wedding. I picture something like these:

    This seems more of a club/party dress and  it is not appropriate for a beach wedding.

    I agree with everything best buddies said.  I think black can totally work for a beach wedding BM dress, but this… isn’t it.  The cut isn’t very good and it could be very unflattering.  I would go with something a little more fitted and a little less like club wear.

    @mscuppycake:  I actually like the dress, i think it’s lovely. As its a beach wedding, maybe conisder a different colour, possibly lighter?

    I see it as versitile. I’d wear it again & be very happy to wear it as a BM dress.

    Are your girls happy with it?

    I  think it’s cute and would be happy to wear it. The drapy design will allow some air to flow to help keep them cool. It will also cover up a multitide of sins around the waistline.

    I think beach weddings can be elegant. They don’t need to be casual or flowy.

    I know this isn’t what you were asking…but are you sure about black for a DW in Mexico?  

    I had a DW in Mexico and although I generally LOVE wearing black…Mexico is just such a colourful place.  it seems kind of our of place on the beach.

    Just food for thought! 😀

    If you have any ladies with larger busts and small waists, they’re likely to look prego In this dress even if you don’t notice. If I wear anything without a defined waist, ppl who know me well think I look the same (because they know my size), but ppl who don’t know me as well think I’m pregnant or quite a few sizes larger than I am. If all your girls either have the lean/model look or are bigger, it might be fine.

    That said, I’d happily put up with ppl thinking I’m pregnant if it meant I finally spent under $100 on a bridesmaid dress I’ll never wear again. 😉
