    @lulubride25:  I think the dresses will look lovely together; I can’t notice a difference at all.

    BTW, we are theme twins!

    They look great.  I don’t think anyone will notice the differnt fabric without getting up close.

    @lulubride25:  I was an awful American bride and bought the dresses from China off the website Lightinthebox.com. I wanted long dresses, which I know is not the most popular length. I found this long, chiffon dress that I felt would compliment most body shapes. I ordered it in pearl pink. I was VERY worried buying the dress off the internet without seeing it in person and knowing the quality beforehand. So, I ordered one dress to make sure I liked them.  I can tell you the dress is very well made. The chiffon is flowy and light. It has boning and structure and is lined on the inside. It exceeded my expectations. The dress does come a little long, so many of my BMs will have to hem them. But, I prefer that to it being too short. You can also have a dress custom made to your measurements, which is what I am doing for my junior BM who is only 11 years old.

    Here is a link to the dress, since I cannot copy or save the picture:

    @lulubride25:  I would doublecheck the fabrics by photographing the dresses.  A friend told me that you should take a picture of the fabrics (together if possible) with AND without a flash to know if they’ll “go” together. Just a thought. To the regular eye, no one will be able to tell the difference.

    @LukBaLady:  I voted yes you can mix them…they’re all different dresses intentionally so nobody will be looking that hard to see if they match.  IMO, the difference in materials more likely will be noticeable by the girl wearing the dress …silk has a nicer fall to it than polyester.  Again they’re all different and meant to be that way, so I think it’s more than fine.

    I think they look great! When I read your description I was going to say “NO WAY” but when I saw the photo I think they look fantastic!  I wouldn’t even notice!
