Bridesmaid dress neckline? Does finances opinion matter?!

sollyb :  Well, for what it’s worth, I actually think for the most part brides should butt out, too.  My comment has nothing to do with her fiance’s genitalia.  I’m not a fan of adults dressing other adults (though I’m just ever so slightly more tolerant of it if the bride is paying for the dresses – which wasn’t specified in this post).  Give a color scheme and let them know the formality level and let people wear what they are most comfortable in.  But in this particular case, it’s too late to say the bride should butt out, too, since she’s already picked the dress out. At this stage the people who have to wear the dress are happy with the dress and that’s more important than whether someone who doesn’t have to wear the dress likes the neckline.  Too many cooks spoil the broth.

Just to add: he doesn’t want their dresses to take away from yours… the bride. Like they’ll somehow be distracting enough for everyone to look at them all day instead of looking at you? That’s a weird opinion to have about the women that his future wife considers her nearest and dearest.

I am not a fan of the mindset behind this.

I love it and think it will be fabulous with your dress. Against what some posters have said, I think it is plenty formal and don’t think a dress has to be floor length/the typical formal style to be a fit for this type of wedding. Great choice!
