Ok so my fiance and I finally picked out her wedding dress. I have had mine for over 6 months and shes been putting off going. So monday we went to davids bridal and found this little number. Prior to going with her, I have been acting like a bridezilla about the whole situation. I am a stickler for a consistent look throughout the entire wedding. I kept telling her that it had to match my dress perfectly. Now I realize that the two dresses don’t flow perfectly but as soon as she had this dress on we knew it was the one! She looks AMAZING and she felt great and comfortable in it.
Here is hers –
and mine. (dont mind sizing on mine 🙂 – it fits now!)
So I would just like some input from anyone. Do they go together enough? or do we look completely unmatched. I don’t know that the input really matters because we cannot afford to buy another dress, I just want some input for myself! Thanks so much!

I don’t see them matching.

Personally I don’t think they need to match. How would that work anyway short of you wearing the same dress? I think as long as they are well-suited formality-wise (as these two dresses are) then you are good to go.

I think they will be perfect together for your wedding 🙂

So why do they have to match? You are two very lovely individual women expressing a commitment to each other. You should both be in dresses you love – and if one is completely different from the other, who cares?
Frankly, I think it makes the ceremony WAY more interesting to see two individuals with distinct personalities commit to each other.
But – the truth is the two dresses COMPLEMENT each other brilliantly. Both have the same level of “formality”, they have similar lines, and they both look great on each of you.
GO FOR IT and don’t worry about being matchy matchy. 😉

I agree with @sonomagal:. You both look great in your gowns, and your wedding will come together beautifully!

They are beautiful together. I have not seen hers before on anyone and I really love it for her. Yours, I don’t think I have not seen that one either, super pretty and the shape is wonderful for your body.

The silhouettes are similar for the two dresses. They don’t have quite the same feel, but I think they’d look really nice with each other.
You both have dresses you love, so that’s all that matters anyways. 🙂

Do they “match?” No. Do you both look killer in your dresses and hence will they look beautiful on your wedding day? Yes!

I agree with @sonomagal:@MissTatas:. They’re not “matchy-matchy” but they both complement eachother well. They aren’t two totally different styles, but aren’t exactly the same either. I don’t think they need to be the same, I just think they need to match your respective personalities. They both look great! 🙂

They don’t match at all in my opinion. I don’t really see why they need to…. wedding dresses are supposed to have their own unique touches.. it’s not a sadie’s dance lol so they shouldn’t be identical. She should have got to choose her OWN wedding dress style. I just hope she didn’t choose the wedding gown she did because YOU wanted everything to match because that would just not be fair. It’s HER day too so if she felt like wearing another gown I hope you were supportive and would allow her too.

In my opinion they don’t match at all, but there is absolutely no reason why they should. Two similar dresses would look strange to me, like little twin girls on a playground 😉 I think both dresses are beautiful, you both look great and all that matters is that you both feel amazing in your dresses.

I think they will look lovely together for your wedding. You don’t want to be OTT matchy matchy anyway. Its nicer the complement eachother and your individual styles.

I agree w/what everyone else has says. You both don’t want to be to matchy matchy. Both dresses are beautiful and show off both of your shapes beautifully and hopefully both of your personailities too. You both should want a dress that echos each of who you are as an idividual. But at the same time I get what you mean you woudn’t want one bride in a huge poufy princess gown and the other in simple gown. So better I think the “go” well together yes. But they are each beautiful on their own.
