If you’re going for modern, glam, couture, I’d pick the style of the black dress. The silver dress looks too matronly and doesn’t say modern, glam or couture. I think the black dress definitely says couture and the ruffles ties in with your dress better.

I think both dresses are really nice. I’m not into having the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses “go” in styles. But, I do think they play off each other well. And I think the silver one would be better for a pregnant Bridesmaid or Best Man.

Honestly, though, given what your dress is, I think both might be a bit too casual. I think it’s because of the length.

I think the black dress is the best choice. A lot of women have only just started showing at 5 months, so while she may need a bigger size due to any pregnancy weight gain, she won’t have a basketball stomach that wouldn’t fit the dress. But if your wedding is in October, that’s 6 months away – how could she only be 5 mo pregnant  by then? Did I misread?

Either way, unless you PG friend is uncomfortable with it, I’d go with the black.

I love the black dress and it is in keeping with your own. You don’t seem to like silver one enough for it to be a contender so why not just ditch it!! I would actually put the three of them in the black one you like and get a simple black pregnancy dress as a standby for miss pregnant if she doesn’t fit the proper one at the time.  I think you would get away with that.  You could always add ruffles or whatever to hers. Perhaps there could be silver incorporated in some other way to the outfit or in bouquet.

Also if you were doing the whole silver sash thing you could buy one for pregnant bridesmaid too and it wouldn’t necessarily matter if she had black maternity dress on with it. I think they make quite dressy ones so that pregnant ladies can go out to events or whatever! People would just see black dresses with the silver.  It would all work as a whole.  It could look quite sweet having one bridesmaid with a bump!

Love your wedding dress!!  I actually don’t feel like the silver dress is too matronly, per se, but next to the black one, it’s just not as exciting. :/ Love the black one!
