    I do like the red dress better but it is very similiar to your gown. I like complimentary Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, but am not a fan of the matching. I do think the purple is very pretty as well and once fitted it could be a beautiful dress. I think the red might automatically look better because it fit your sister whereas the purple dress does not fit that Bridesmaid or Best Man yet.

    But if you like both  would let your girls know that price difference and see if they still want the red.

    I think the red is too similar to your gown. I know some people want that so feel free to ignore me

    I agree with the above posters.  Those dresses are both pretty, but I think they are too similar to your dress so your dress won’t have the pop that you want on your wedding day.  I would look for something with a different neckline, maybe a halter, scoop neck, v-neck, off the shoulder, etc. as opposed to the sweetheart.  Also trying another fabric like chiffon might help.  Your dress is beautiful, and you don’t want your bridesmaids dresses to steal some of that thunder!

    I like the red one.  The bodice on the purple one makes the boobs look a little Madonnaesque (pointy lol)

    The red compliments the bust area better, or maybe the purple isn’t fitted well. But I like the red. I think the jewel is pretty too.

    @X0JLYNN03:  Ahhhh, sorry if that came out wrong!  I know they won’t upstage you!  I was just saying that they look so similar in style to your dress, which is gorgeous!

    @X0JLYNN03:  I like the purple one because I think it compliments your dress (same neckline) without looking like a red version of your dress (fuller skirt).   I also think the purple one is more modern, which would go great with your dress (IMO)!

    The purple one is so much more flattering!
