My sister (my Maid/Matron of Honor – the only one in my wedding party on my side) is wearing black too.  I actually like #1 more but it really depends on your wedding as a whole.  Forever 21 stuff runs SUPER small and everything is shorter then heck – might be something to keep in mind.

@allyfally:  we are also doing black Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses…ive been to several weddings where there have been BMs in black…and i think it looks really nice….were are giving ours some accents in red, maybe you could do that….get some purple accessories, like braclets and hair pieces….itll look great!

@allyfally:  I loved wearing black as a Bridesmaid or Best Man. So much so, that my girls are wearing black as well, with a lace overlay on the bodice. Black is flattering, photographs nicely, and everyone feels pretty good in it.

My girls were in black and they looked wonderful.  But it was one of the colors of the wedding.  However, it made the purple flowers they were holding “pop” in all the pictures.

@allyfally:  I also live in Louisville, and I have returned stuff I ordered online to the store with no problem.

@allyfally:  I like dress number 2 as well.  I think black is fine, my bridesmaids will probably be in black as we are having a winter wedding and I don’t want it to look like christmas.  And, if you have bridesmaids that all have different body styles, black normally looks great on everyone!

I actually tried on dress two, and it didn’t even cover my lady parts, but then again I am 5,7 and not 5,2

@allyfally:  Accesorizing them would be a good idea. I’ve returned items to the store that I bought online and they only gave me a store credit. Not sure about their other policies.
