    I think the dress matches your theme  and if you love it than thats great! I would have to see you in the dress to truley vote. The dress looks great from the pics. You could do a variety of bridesmaid dresses. Will they be black or gold. I like these

    @burne2ea:  If you love the dress, there is no reason to get a new one!  Looking at your theme pics there is still a lot of white in there.  I love the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses that PP posted, Full length dresses definitely aren’t always casual.


    What about replacing some of the crystal applique on your dress with black? Example:

    @burne2ea:  I don’t mind it in that stock picture, but IDK about with your dress, something about your side detailing and the fabric, but that’s just my view.


    I agree about doing some jewelry that’s black and/or gold — even if it’s just for the reception.  You could also do a black or gold corset tie thingy.

    Your dress is great, what a deal! I don’t think your dress needs to match your reception theme color-wise. I’d go with black bridesmaid dresses like you planned & call it a day! If you’re afraid the dress isn’t fancy enough add some blingy jewelry & detailed veil : )

    @burne2ea:  Your dress is white. There is no way it’ll clash with black and gold. Couple of thoughts:

    • I think maxis could be formal enough, but it depends on the fabric (no cotton, linen, jersey, etc.). Look for silk, chiffon, satin, and since you’re getting black, they’ll look more formal.

    As for adding drama to your dress:

    • you can wear a gold veil (or veil w/gold embellishments) for the ceremony (with “normal” jewelry):


    • and then switch to a bold black statement necklace (or a dramatic lariat) for the reception
