I’m hoping to get something that compliments my dress, has a little bit of poof or flow, and looks good on my girls.

@AndysCraftsNmore:  your dress is going to look rich compared to your BM dresses if you s y ick with DB. Can they afford better quality and looking dresses? Is that the Kim K Vera she wore during the ceremony to Kris Humphries?

I’d stick them in something flowy to complement you!

What about this one?

the line will suit your dress more and looks formal. 

This one to me is also a lot more formal than the ones you’ve tried on.

I would go with a simple and elegant fitted black or red dress. I definitely wouldn’t try to ‘match’ their dress to yours bc you don’t want them wearing ball gowns too, I don’t think?!

I had a giant dress and I gave my BM giant dresses too.  Different material and color but it really looked good with all of us in ball gowns.

@AndysCraftsNmore:  Hello VW twin! Smile I like the middle two links you posted.  I wouldn’t worry too much about complementing your dress… they’ll be so different no matter what.  After I picked my bridal gown, I also wondered about how to best pick BM dresses… ultimately, I went with dresses that went with my venue and “feel” of the wedding, knowing that almost anything would go with my gown.  That said, I steered clear of lace and tulle, so as not to be too matchy-matchy.  Good luck!
