@2beemrs:  I’m not a big fan of either dress myself. I guess I’d pick #1 if I had to pick one. #2 does seem very prom-y to me. I would probably like it better without the sparkly panels. Then again, a lot of bridesmaids dresses are very similar to prom dresses…

not a fan of either of them…I agree that they’re both very prom-y

@2beemrs:  can you eliminate #1 on the basis that it’s a ‘high low’ hem? tell her you want it to be one length, either short or long, but that this style is too trendy. plus it has a small train – that will be annoying on the day of. 

#2 i’d eliminate by saying ‘oh i want the whole dress to be ‘wedding colour’ so please pick something without all the embellishment. 


#2 would be fine if it wasn’t covered in crystals i think.

@2beemrs:  I agree they both look like prom dresses. But as PP said, the 2nd without crystals would be really pretty as a bridesmaid dress.

I would definitely tell her #1 is not approprite – on account of a number of things incliding the hi-lo hem and the train. It has a TRAIN.

I would perhaps ask is she could get #2 without the embellishment, maybe make the panels a different shade of your wedding colour instead? And get rif of the long flowy bit coming out of the back of the shoulder. I suppose that’s supposed to look like the strap, but it makes it a bit more prommy to me.

Or, if you hate them both on more grounds, just tell her ou want something much simpler – like a normal BM dress is 🙂

@2beemrs:  Yikes! 

I understand since you said she could pick whatever. Hopefully she’ll cool down and reconsider.

@2beemrs:  That stinks that she freaked like that.  I guess you should have been more clear…but in your defense…I would have had enough confidence in my MOH’s judgement where I wouldn’t even of felt the need to make a statement like “nothing prom-y.” (Because that’s the first word that came to my mind too…even before I read your post.)

Maybe you should throw a few pictures of dresses out at her of the type of feel your wedding is going for?  Soft and romatic?  Modern?? 

I hope it all works out and she cools down!!

I say axe the freedom on the dresses right now and either pick one or just a few for them to choose from. I think complete freedom is bound to lead to clashes in taste.

I am sorry for if I offend anyone. As we all have different taste but 



 those are some tacky lookin dresses. In my humble opinion.
