    i’m being honest, sorry.  dress 3 is ok.  none of them are my style but if i had to pick one to wear, it would be 3.

    Personally, at first when I didn’t see someone in it, I thought they weren’t great but when I saw you in it, it really came together for me and I think they will be super cute! Tell your bridesmaids to suck it up and try them on and then pass judgement but not a minute before because they look super cute to me!

    I’m not sure how dress 1 will look on an actual person… it looks strange.

    And dress 4 could be fit a little better… it doesn’t seem to flatter whoever is in the picture.

    The rest are all fine, though.

    My honest opinion is that most of them are really cute and definitely not your standard issue “ugly” Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. However, a couple of them lack that “can be worn again” factor that set them apart from typical Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. That is where your BMs may have a problem/have the problem.

    Dress #2 and #4 have this issue b/c of the giant flower and flower trim on the front. Are those detachable by any chance? They’re perfect for a June wedding, but for anything else? Not really imo, which is a shame as the style and color is so cute.

    Also the bubble gum comment? They are little boys. 🙂 It’s the law for them to make wise-ass comments. They should not be taken to heart.

    I voted “No – they are cute!” for the above reasons.

    @Barbiestylez:  I think they are cute. Honestly I wouldn’t wear them again after the wedding, but I think that’s the way it is with most Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses! I wouldn’t complain about any of the dresses if I had to wear one. I’m a Bridesmaid or Best Man later this year and I will wear whatever makes the bride happy- that’s how it should be imo.

    I’m not a huge fan of them, but they aren’t bad. Are they returnable? If you can return them, I’d just tell all the girls to buy a pink dress. If they aren’t returnable, I’d just tell your girls to suck it up. Except the one that’s pregnant – will she be pregnant at the wedding. 

    I’m about to be a bridesmaid in my brother-in-law’s wedding and her mom sewed cups into the dress. Which is great. Except that I’m a 32F and she used D cups. So they don’t fit all the way around my boob. The cup sticks out about and inch farther than my breast. I pointed this out, but she said “Oh no, we don’t want to get any bigger cup – it fits great” So whatever. I’ll wear it. Not that big of a deal. I’m a bridesmaid. I realize that I’m not goign to be wearng a dress that I would pick out.

    I dislike #2 and #4 just because of the giant flowers. But the rest are pretty standard bridesmaid dresses.

    Tell your girls to shut up and that its your day.

    The dresses look lovely.

    honestly one of my girls didn’t even have time to get her dress altered and in her talles heels was tripping all over the place, one of my girls kept falling out of her dress and non of them complained…. it was my day and they all sucked up any personal drama.

    I’m sorry you are having a hard time and I’m sorry even girls here are saying they don’t like them. I think they are stunning and great! I’ll come be a Bridesmaid or Best Man for ya 😉

    I really like them! I can see them not being everyone’s style, but I can totally see why you picked them. They are very romantic and sweet, and as near as I can tell, not unflattering.  Good luck!

    I think 2, 3, and 5 are really cute. The others not so much. But since you paid for them, I dont think they have anything to complain about, unless they just fit them horribly.

    The color wouldnt work for me, because I’m so pale, but I wouldnt complain about it. Its probably impossible to find a shade of pink that flatters every skintone.
