    It depends on a variety of factors.

    What do you want?

    Who is paying for each dress?

    @HisNightOwl2014:  Is there any way to have a shade of your wedding color that is a happy medium for everyone? That might help. 🙂

    @HisNightOwl2014:  That’s great that you are being flexible with your girls! 🙂 Keeps the drama down that is for sure. I have been fortunate that none of my girls have had issues.

    @HisNightOwl2014:  I went with purple and some of mine didn’t want the light color either so I did alternates. I had 8 Bridesmaid or Best Man, My Maid/Matron of Honor wore the Regency color in a different style dress, 3 others wore Regency, and 4 wore iris (I wanted lilac but I guess they don’t have it anymore). I took them all and I picked out 4 dresses that I liked and let them choose from there and thankfully they all agreed on the same style dress so it worked out great!

    If it were me, I wouldn’t compromise on colors. Fit, style, material, sure. But not the colors! That determines so much about your wedding. Bridesmaids know when they sign up there’s a decent chance they’re not going to like the color. It’s kind of part of the package. (If it helps, I’ve been a Bridesmaid or Best Man six times already and only liked one or two of the colors).

    @jo.lee:  yup, yup…

    my moh is pissing me off, to the extent of calling herself a cow bc of the fact my other moh and 2 bridesmaids are thin. in. a. group. fb. message. for real.

    I chose black dresses, bc you cant go wrong with black. but apparently my choice which comes in 2 lengths, is a bad choice in chiffon. but the high low strapless dress in chiffon for the other wedding she is a moh in, is fine, in lapis(which I’m not knocking lol, I mean it’s a dark color.so no huge difference).

     op, do not do what I’m doing, which is let someone else rule. You’ll regret it. choose the color, then let them go from there. if our moms bp could wear hot pink and yellow taffeta southern belle pageant gowns, our girls can deal with what they deem an undesirable shade, but a comfortable fit.

    It’s your wedding, so you’re well within your rights to say “Tough. Deal with it.” if you want to.

    Maybe in lieu of a bridesmaids gift, you can offer to pay for part of the dress? That way you get the dress you want, and they don’t have to spend a ton of money on a dress they’d prefer not to have.
