I’m having a really hard time deciding what type of BM’s dresses would go well with my bridal gown. I’m wearing a lace dress – deep V neckline, trumpet silhouette – which is very romantic/vintage looking.
Any suggestions on what type/material/colour of dress would go well with this?
I don’t want it to be too ‘matchy’ and had originally thought that black cocktail dresses would be nice.
Now I’m worried that the styles won’t go well together. Also, it will be a summer wedding.
Any suggestions? Any brides wear full lace wedding gowns? What type of Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses did you choose?

I am wearing a full length lace dress, and for my bridesmaids I chose dark grey silk shantung knee length dresses in all different styles from simpledress.com They also came in satin and some other materials, but I picked the one I liked best because I think you could wear almost any material with lace!

I’ve seen many different bridesmaid dresses with lace bridal gowns. I think it’s more – what doesn’t go with lace?
Are you trying to mimic a silhouette or specific feature of your gown in the bridesmaids dresses?

I didn’t really even think about trying to match my gown when picking our bm dresses but I ended up with cotton dress with a sheer overlay. I really think any fabric would work as long as it matches the formality of your wedding.

Thanks for the quick response!
I guess I’m most worried about matching the ‘feeling’ of my wedding gown. Does that make sense?? My dress is pretty vintage-y…champagne coloured with a white lace overlay, so I don’t want my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses to be too modern.
I’ve attached a picture of my dress – very similar to yours LGenz!! 🙂
