I think I have decided on the following as my bm dresses, I like that it is not so typical (relatively affordable $158 as I am paying for them) and the girls are more likely to wear them again. Also no alterations needed! Have any of you done this? What do you think?

@Marquise123: As a Maid/Matron of Honor in a June wedding, I just don’t see anyone wearing a long gown such as that again. Perhaps if they had it altered after the wedding to be a short dress but to keep it long, the girls would have to be attending something pretty formal. I love the color though, is that the color you are getting?

@Marquise123: If you’re the one paying for it, then it’s most important that you like it! I think it’s beautiful.

Adrianna Papell right? Such a lovely gown. They may still need alterations though. Strapless dresses have to fit well in the bodice- or else.

I think it’s really beautiful, but it does look like a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress to me. I don’t think anyone will wear it again — but who cares? I never re-wear Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

@turkey22: Yes, that is the color. It looks the same in person. I am having a formal wedding, so long is a must. One of my BMs asked if I would consider short, but since I am buying the dresses, I felt like I should get what I wanted.. which is long. I actually have several long dresses for various events, and all the girls, except for that one said they would probably wear it again. They are more than welcome to cut it after though!

@Marquise123: I think it’s gorgeous. I go to formal events a few times a year and I would definitely wear it again if I were your Bridesmaid or Best Man. I agree that it may require some alteration but nothing too crazy. Nice choice!

@Marquise123: It’s beautiful! I also dont think they would be super rewearable, since girls don’t really wear long dresses these days…
