I have to admit, my first reaction thinking about white BM dresses was “uh oh.” I really do like the second picture though, the white dresses with the blue sashes – it really makes the accent color POP! 🙂

I *just* saw one the other day where the bridesmaids were in ivory formal long dresses and you would never think it would look right but man-oh-man was it gorgeous! Sorry I have no idea where I saw the pic but for what its worth I think it is a really pretty idea, go with your gut if you have a vision!

I will try to borrow and scan a photo.  My grandma’s bridesmaids wore white back in 1948 and it was classic and elegant, even then!

I think it can work if they are short dresses.

I cant even tell who the bride is in that last picture posted. I have seen a few cute weddings with white BM dresses but I dont have any pics. Sorry.

I think white bridesmaid dresses can really work, but only if there’s enough contrast between the maids dresses and the wedding dress.  I love it in this case:

There’s another example on OBB where the bride wore pink, and the bridesmaids wore white!  I also think it works really well if the wedding dress is long and the maids dresses are short, or if coloured sashes or accents are used.

And then at the end of the day, to each her own.  It’s not my style, but if it makes someone else happy, then who am I to judge?  If I see a photo of a wedding party all dresses in white, and I can’t really tell who the bride, then I take a step back and think about the fact that I’m just an anonymous person on the internet.  I’m pretty sure the wedding guests could identify the bride, and that’s really what matters.
