    That is a really pretty dress.  It’s your wedding and your special day.  The last thing I would worry about is whether they can wear it again.  They never do…. And I have been to lots of weddings in my 40 some years.  Make your day special and memorable.


    Good luck

    This dress is beautiful… I would say go for that print. Plus depending on their dress style they can defintely wear it again (say shorten it) and make it a cocktail dress.

    I would wear it again…. with a cardigan or shall.

    I don’t want to sound like a downer but be careful with prints, I think that one is very cute now but not sure if it will hold up 50 years from now…Whereas you can never go wrong with a LBD….just sayin 🙂

    PS- SO nice of you to get your BM’s dresses for them, wish I could do that! I’m sure they appreciate it….

    Why not give them an option – either a LBD or the print? How many bridesmaids do you have? If you have 4 or more, it would look great if you had 2 and 2, or whatever.

    I LOVE the Dessy dress by the way – and I would totally wear it again!

    I actually would totally wear that Dessy dress again. It’s so pretty. I tend to be a bit bold with my dress selections, though. Why don’t you ask your girls if they would prefer black and white patterned dresses or plain black dresses. Also, does that Dessy pattern come in something shorter? That would be perfect.

    I say if you are paying then go with the Dessy. I would also totally wear that again, though I would probably have it shortened to cocktail length.

    I just remembered…we tried this one on when we were shopping because I adore the print too. For my girls who aren’t busty it was stunning, for the ones that are this dress wasn’t the most flattering. Not sure if that’s an issue for you!
