    Maybe she can find a stokist in London and try it on.  She may like it if she tries it on.  I get what she’s saying eventhough you are allowing them to choose a style the first 3 are pretty much the same style and the last one is a bit out there so there isn’t much choice, I think.  You could prob find one that all 3 like.

    Well as someone who like ruffles and sparkle, I think these dresses are are great and I would wear any of them, especially #1, its very girly even though its not in your face with spakles or what have you. I say stop lookng, you have done a great job thying to be accomodating and picked great dresses. The only reason I would consider a change is if its not figure flattering and she owuld feel uncomfortable wearing them..

    I agree–these are all lovely dresses in various cuts, and there are several options for this bridesmaid to pick from. If she wants a little more bling, could she dress it up with sparkly jewelry or even some sort of brooch or dress accessory?

    Also, love the color.

    These are the dresses, I’m asking my girls to pick from too, in black. There are seriously so many options, I think it’s a little crazy that she can’t find ONE. Is it the color she doesn’t like or the style choices?

    Some girls just don’t care what their bridesmaid dress looks like.  I think if you love the line of dresses then you should stop looking and go with that.

    I think they’re great. I don’t know what her problem is.

    These dresses are adorable and it looks like there are a lot of choices.  Plus, as we brides know, sometimes you think you don’t like a dress, put it on and then BAM!  Total change of heart.

    I don’t really see how she couldn’t like them either. Is it possibly about the money or the color and she just doesn’t want to say it or something? They’re all really pretty, and I think they’re different enough she should be able to like at least one of the styles!

    Well, as a ruffles and sparkles girl, my initial reaction is that these bridesmaid dresses are kind of plain for my taste, so I think I see where she might be coming from. I totally get that they’re re-wearable (and definitely more versatile than a ruffly sparkly dress would be), but I would still be concerned, just because I don’t normally wear stuff that is that plain. Maybe remind her of their versatility, and suggest that in the future the dress can be worn with a belt or statement jewelry or crazy shoes. That might make her feel a little better about it.

    There is nothing wrong with the dresses you’ve chosen, however. They look like they’re constructed well, appear to be flattering, and are all-around lovely dresses. I’m sure she can find something among the options that works for her, even if it might not be something she would choose for herself. At the end of the day, it’s your day, and so I think she’s going to just have to suck it up and wear what you think is appropriate for your wedding (and I would say the same thing if you had chosen lime green tube dresses). You’ve obviously been friends awhile, and I’m sure she’s known that you guys have differing taste, and so I think she just has to respect that, rather than try to push her taste on your wedding. 

    I voted to stop looking.
