@lovin_iswhatigot:  I am not a fan of white period. However, since I am not wearing a white dress (pink) I thought about putting my girls in ivory.

@lovin_iswhatigot:  Kim K had her girls in actual bridal dresses. I thought that was a bit much. I wanted my girls to wear modern white dresses, since mine was champagne with white floral/lace detail. My criteria was that they couldn’t be long like mine or have the same neckline. However, they didnt want to and we went with ivory/nudes instead.

@lovin_iswhatigot:  I’m going to be in a wedding with bridesmaids in white dresses. We ordered dresses from Alfred Sung’s bridesmaids line in their “Snow White” colour.

Our dresses are 50s-esque cocktail dresses that hit right at the knee and have short sleeves and a boat neck. The bride will be in a strapless ballgown, so I don’t think anyone will be confused as to who the bride is!

@lovin_iswhatigot:  Back in the late 70s, when my mom and dad go married, she had white dresses for her bridesmaids.  It was considered really out of the norm, but they did have a small, subtle floral pattern and were tea length.  I’ve seen the pictures and I think they were beautiful!  Which is saying something considering the fashion of the time period.

I don’t see anything wrong with white bridesmaid dresses, but like you I think they’d have to look a little more different from a bridal gown than what is pictured.  If they were short dresses I’d probably like them.

@lovin_iswhatigot:  historically, the whole point of bridesmaids was that they were SUPPOSED to resemble the bride, so that the devil or any would be kidnappers would be confused if they tried to snatch the bride. So technically having your bridesmaids in white is the most traditional you can get!

I kinda like the look of white bridesmaid dresses…in fact, I almost had my bridesmaids wear white. In the end I didn’t, though, since the dress we all liked didn’t come in white.

I almost did this for my bridesmaids – a cream with a lace overlay, short dresses. They were pretty! I ended up going with a pale pink though because it looked better on the girls.

I personally would not do this. But some of these pics look great. I think the short white dresses look better than the long ones.

I don’t really understand people who think the bride needs to stand out.. which guest in your wedding do you have that doesn’t know who you are????? Seriously, if you don’t know how to spot the bride at the wedding, just leave.
