    I hate one shoulder dresses, so that explains my vote.

    I think the strapless dress is more timeless. Both are beautiful though – you can’t go wrong!

    I’m biased because my bridesmaids had one shoulder. We all loved the dress.

    (Ignore the bra strap lol)

    I don’t have my pro pics or a group shot because there was only one sample.

    I love the one shoulder but i think you should ask your bridesmaids vs people on a forum.

    AdaLee:  i voted for the one shoulder bc every bridesmaids dress ive seen in the last 3 years has been the first one, im sick of seeing it.

    AdaLee:  im not opposed to ALL strapless dresses-its that particular style. There are so many pretty strapless dresses, its just I have seen the one posted at almost every wedding, and whats even more of a coincidence is they have all been different shades of purple lol

    I voted for the strapless dress.

    I like one-shoulder bridesmaids dresses, but there’s something about the strap on that dress that I don’t like. I think it’s the shape. The strap gives the dress a boxy look.

    AdaLee:  Could you offer both options to your girls? And just have mixed styles?

    I love both! I went shopping last week with two of my bridesmaids who tried on both of these styles. My personal favorite is the one shoulder. It’s the exact style I had been searching for after seeing it on Style Me Pretty. My only issue is that Bill Levkoff’s shade of pink is lighter than what I am looking for.

    I am fine with the girls wearing different styles in the same color. My bridesmaids also tried on a strapless style with a knot in the front. They said the knot dress and the one shoulder dress were both comfortable and well made, so they are both strong possibilities. Watters makes a dress almost identical to the Bill Levkoff one shoulder dress, but it does not have cups and the pink is more peachy/nude and darker. 

    I would like at least my maid of honor, or two of the bridesmaids to wear the one shoulder dress because it’s gorgeous and I’d prefer some of them have straps to contrast with my strapless dress. 

    I am going to one more store with my bridesmaids this weekend and then will make a decision. So far, Bill Levkoff is probably the front runner despite the fact that my parents and fiancé don’t care for the one shoulder dress.
