To Lace… or NOT to Lace??

Personally, I like the BM dresses to be a different style than the brides. A friend of mine has a one shoulder with floral accents and she wants her BM in the same. I think it makes the brides dress less special. With that being said, some people really like the consistency and think it makes the bridal party tie in with the bride. Would a lace accent for them be an option instead of all lace?

I wouldn’t put your bridesmaids in lace if that’s what you’ll be wearing.

i was in my best friend’s wedding in October, and she wore an all lace dress and wanted the bridesmaids to compliment it with us having lace. i think that since it was just the top part lace it did compliment her, without taking away from her.  although, i feel like maybe you shouldn’t since your wanting a more pastel, and on the lighter side of the color palette.  this was our dress, in the color she chose:

Good Luck!

@ssbridenc2014:  I wore a lace mermaid style dress and my bridesmaids all wore short, grey lace dresses. I thought it worked out fine. The style was very different from my dress, and the colours were contrasting so I felt the lace on their dress was a nice compliment to mine. I probably wouldn’t have chosen lace for the BMs if we’d gone with long, light-coloured dresses though.

I’m wearing an all lace dress, and I thought lace bridesmaid dresses would be cute.  My consultant said it would take away from my dress, and had me try on MY dress sample, and put all of my bridesmaids in lace, and she was totally right.  There was just too much going on.  She suggested chiffon, and it was beautiful

How much lace it all depends on the dresses and colors…

generically speaking i would go against it
