    What type of wedding are you having? Day or night? Formal or casual venue?

    soontobemrstee :  I think it looks elegant and isn’t over the top. This does not look like a prom dress. I was a matron of honor that literally wore a prom dress in a wedding (bride chose), and this does NOT come close! As long as it’s within your or your girls’ budgets (whoever’s paying) then I say go for it!

    I need that dress. For myself, and my bridesmaids. It’s so beautiful. It’s not too fancy. It isn’t a ballgown or anything, and I think the shape goes really nicely with your dress, totally compliments it. I don’t think people really need to stick to strict dress codes for bridal parties anymore. It’s not over the top, it’s pretty and elegant and only a little sparkly. 

    Totally go for it!

    I feel like the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress you chose really compliments your dress style. As long as they don’t object and it’s within budget I say it’s a great choice!

    also – “bling” etc. does not always equal a prom-like look. It all depends on execution, and I really do think it’s a beautiful dress.

    I love the bridesmaid dress and it suits your venue so I think you should stick with it! I dont see too much sparkle and it doesnt look prom-ish to me. Also im chesty and think it would be very flattering, I agree about not wanting too much cleavage in pictures.

    No, I think they’re beautiful and definitely not over the top. By The Way, your poll is confusing!

    I think it’s beautiful! I’m currently in a wedding for a friend and I would’ve been happy if she had chosen this dress!

    They’re so pretty, and definitely go well with your dress. They match the level of formal-ness but don’t have the same elements so they don’t overshadow yours at all. Perfectly complemented!

    I definitely don’t think they’re too much! In saying that, my girls were in floor length, full sequinned gowns soooo… 🤔 Keep them! You want your girls to look good!

    That’s a beautiful dress! If I were a bridesmaid I’d be very happy to wear it.

    I love, love the bridesmaids dresses and your dress! I’m really hoping you’ll post a recap after the wedding, cause I need to see pics!

    I like the bridesmaid dress, and don’t think it looks to fancy.  Do you know if it has bust support?  It might be hard to wear a bra with it.  It’s hard to find good strapless bras if you’re busty, so ask the bridesmaids if they think it will work.
