    I’m biased because I actually wore the second dress as a bridesmaid this past summer. We got to pick out own dresses and thats the one I chose. I really do love it but there is one exception. The fabric gets REALLY wrinkled as you wear it. That would give a plus to the first dress b/c thats a different fabric, you can tell FH that its an “elegant” fabric ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love that you take your FI’s opinion into everything!  I am the exact same way.  I want his opinion on EVERYTHING for the wedding, so that it is truly OUR wedding, and not MY wedding and oh yeah that groom over there haha!

    However, I did NOT get his opinion on dresses of any sort because I truly believe that that is between me and my girls.  We are the ones wearing the dresses, not him, and, quite frankly, my Fiance kinda has a horrible sense of style for clothes anyway!

    Since neither of your BMs care, and your Maid/Matron of Honor really likes the first one, I say go for the first one.  Your girls are going to look classy and elegant in any of those dresses, especially since they will be all made up that night.  So on this one I would go against FI’s wishes and with MOH’s, because she’s the one who actually has to wear it ๐Ÿ™‚

    my bridesmaids are wearing this dress…

    its comfortable and looks great on! I like the material better than the charmuese. It has pockets and my cousin has this dress in black and she wears it all the time so its totally re-wearable. And I have it in lapis at my house right now, and its absolutely stunning! It was a great pick for Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses!

    I love a dress with pockets but I voted for the first one.  That is my “favorite” fabric for bridesmaids dresses.

    I am partial to the first one because I don’t like satin Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. I don’t think the “shine” looks good in pictures. But that is just me. I appreciate your Fiance opinion, but I think that the 1st dress is prfect for evening formal.

    I think the first one looks like it would be more flattering on varying figures. He may just need to see the first one dressed up to be sold. For a may wedding I think they will look great.

    I think the cut of the first dress is more flattering. The second and third look like they’ll be out of style sooner too. And I agree with previous posters about the shine on satin in pictures looking bad. 

    If Fiance doesn’t like dress #1, maybe look for another A-line dress without the layers in the skirt. That might also make it look more formal.

    I really like the second one!  I think it’s sleek and classy, and your girls could definitely wear it again.

    I am going to say #1!

    Because like your Maid/Matron of Honor said it does make even these tiny skinny models look boxy!

    All three dresses are kind of similar…why not put each girl in a different dress…or you could let Maid/Matron of Honor wear the one she likes and put the other two in a different dress.

    I may be a little biased, but I like the second one. Its the same design of my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

    How tall are your BMs because the last one seems quite short. Altho I do like that style in general, i would like it much more if it were a bit longer
