I like it! I think it does lend to a crisp look. My running gag with myself is “no one is going to wear white to the wedding…not even me!” since my dress is gold. Lately I’ve been tinkering around with the idea of having the BMs in cream since I’m wearing gold and obviously everyone will know I’m the bride. If I were to do it (and I just may) I’d make sure the BMs all had vibrant colored bouquets. I would also go with a shorter length though because I like the look.

I like color too much.  I’d feel too much like a Polo add if everyone was in white.

Well personally I’d like to be the only one in white. If I went to a wedding where the BMs wore white I probably wouldn’t think anything of it unless the dresses were long..in the one picture of the BM’s in long white dresses I had no idea who the bride was. I like the white dresses shorter!:)

I’ve seen it done at two other weddings…both were actually kind of nice…one had the girls in tea length dresses like the 2nd picture, the other, the bride wore coral and her Bridesmaid or Best Man wore white…both turned out beautiful in pictures

I really like the look.  I think it works better if the BM’s dresses are obviously different though.  i.e. knee length, ivory, etc…  That 3rd one I couldn’t tell who the bride was right away.  You also lose a little bit of the detail in the wedding gown.  I LOVE the idea of a white wedding.

I love, love love it! I would have probably done it for my wedding except that the dress I chose didn’t come in that color!

I love BMs in white—but not this particular photo.  Something about the dresses is all off.  But I have seen it done where I just swoon over it.

Well, it’s not for me, but it’s more in line with what bridesmaids were originally intended for: to confuse evil spirits as to which one the bride was, so that evil spirits couldn’t curse the bride on her wedding day.

 

I think I’ll take my chances, though Tongue out

While it’s not something I would do, I think it looks beautiful!  To each their own!

I know a bride that had a gorgeous pink dress and her BM’s all wore white – it was stunning!
