So my friend and I didn’t have much luck bridesmaid shopping today, but we did find this one that I really really like! I’m a glitsy person, I wear sequins or sparkles everyday, so I thought it fit “me” well.
It’s different than your average bridesmaid dress, but it actually IS an alfred angelo bridesmaid dress. (we added the sash). I also DIDNT want black dresses because wedding is in aug. but this one is too cute to pass up. All of the hot pink dresses are too boring now.
So what do you think? I know it’s different, but is it still wedding appropriate? Not too homecomingy??
Also the dress was a size too small, so it may be an inch or so longer!

Hmmm it’s a little hard to picture just bc of the orientation of the pic and her socks. My first thought is that it looked cheap but after looking a little more I think it could be cute. I’m not a huge fan of the sash.

I think it’s a super cute dress!! and personally it’s something I could see the bridesmaids wearing again (to a chirstmas/new years party) If it suits you are your wedding vision, I’d say go for it!

I’m not a fan of the sash either, I think if you lose the sash and the dress is longer it’ll look nice.

I love it esp with the sash.

What don’t u like about the sash? It’s not tied right or anything bc it had bling on it we didn’t want. I think without it it’s kind of boring. And I want to incorporate hot pink.

@DamaskBride47: I think it’s pretty but too short

@DamaskBride47: I like the dress a lot! I think to be Bridesmaid or Best Man appropriate it kind of needs to be a little longer but you said that’s probably going to be the case with the right size.
I think its a nice choice if you like sparkle and you do so I say go ahead.
PS – Maybe add a poll?

I think the sash makes it feel homecoming to me, but other than that I really adore it and think it would make a great bridesmaid dress. For adding pink, could the shoes be hot pink?

I think it’s a pretty dress but not very flattering on your Bridesmaid or Best Man. The sash and the mid thigh hemline cut her in pieces and make her look stockier and plumper than she probably is. I think if you can find a dress like this that hit sher just above the knee it would be more flattering. Also keep in mind that sequin will make your girls appear larger in photos due to the light bouncing off. Just some things to keep in mind.

Yeah, I have to agree with some of the PPs. I am not feeling the sash. I think if you still wanted to incorporate pink, maybe loose the sash and get them pink statement necklaces! Like this?:

I’m a sparkle girl too, so I’m naturally drawn to this cute little dress . . .
But I think the sash looks like an afterthought, and a little bit juvenile. I agree with any posters who have suggested pulling in hot pink with shoes/jewelry/flowers.
I also think it’s important to make sure that all of your bridesmaids are comfortable in dresses that short. One of my best friends had to wear a short gown in a wedding, and she’s on the thicker side, so she felt over-exposed. I wasn’t in the wedding, but I was a guest, and I found it kind of distracting on some of the girls.
I definitely think there’s a way to make it work, though! Keep us posted!

I think the sash does make it look a bit too young and homecoming dress. If your girls are comfortable with the length, I see nothing wrong with it. If it were me, I wouldn’t be able to wear something that short, but I wouldn’t bat an eyelash if I saw bridesmaids in it.
I do agree with another poster that it doesn’t flatter the girl pictured as well as it could. And I also agree on the pink necklace suggestion.

I think it’s a little on the short side and I don’t like the sash. I don’t hate it though

It definitely needs to be longer, I’m not sold on the sash either but I’m not a super fan of sashes. I would like to wear it as a Bridesmaid or Best Man if it was longer.
