My mom and my sister (my MOH) have found a dress that they like. I just don’t know about it. Bridesmaid dresses have been one of the most difficult parts about the entire wedding!! I don’t even know why!! Posting to hear your your thoughts!
Here is a picture of the dress.
Its more shades of purple and lavender than blue and pink . . . the colors didn’t really come out well in the photo (sorry). I like the bustling of the skirt at the bottom – my dress has bustling too – and I think that they would look nice together. It’s a formal wedding and I think the dress certainly fits the bill there.
My concern is that it’s a little out of the ordinary. I’ve never seen a two toned bridesmaid dress and I’m just afraid it will look . . . cheesy?? Weird? Too much like a prom/quinceanera?? Has anyone else used a two-toned dresses for their maids?? If you don’t like the dress above – do you have any suggestions on what dresses would compliment mine?
(I’ll add a picture for you:
Thoughts?? Suggestions?? Thanks Bees! 🙂

I like the design of the dress, but don’t like the color combo/two tone. I would like it better if it was more of a gradient with the dark color on the bottom, then fades up. I think the part I most dislike is that the dark color seems random with little to no transition.

oh no. . .there are so many things not to like about that dress.
I would keep their silhouettes slimmer. they don’t have to match your dress.

I’m sorry, but I don’t care for that dress. To me, it looks like a prom dress.

@HeMadeMeWantTo: Agree, the ombre effect is too random
I think there is too much going on. It either needs to be a simple dress with ombre coloring or pickups in one color.
TBH if a bride asked me to wear that I would not be a happy camper.

I really… don’t like it. Sorry… It just looks like a prom dress to me, and I’m not sure about the colours.

I’m sorry but I have to be honest. That dress is…..not attractive, (to put it mildly). I don’t think it is meant for adult women to wear. Looks like something a 15 year old girl would pick out for her quinceanera.
If your wedding is formal, I would look for something a little more elegant for your BMs.

Yeah, that’s what I told my sister. We’re still looking. I just wanted to make sure I wasn’t alone on that one!

I have to agree with everyone else. I don’t like the dress at all.
