Tough call. They are very, very similar. At the same time: there are differences.

I guess it depends on how “cohesive” you want to get.  (definitely stay away from the ruched chair covers if you do go for the BMs dresses: that would be too much!)

They are very similar. I think for me, I would want a bit more of a contrast, but the dresses are beautiful.

@jules28:  I agree with this.  They are so very similar, and I’d personally want my dress to stand out, rather than have people looking at the similarities.  That being said, it’s a gorgeous dress!

I think, since they’re not the exact same dress, it’ll look fine. It looks like the bridal gown has pleats, while the dress has ruching. I think it’ll look cohesive.

It would be too close for me

The chest area are similar or almost the same but the bottoms are not. So I would go for the dresses, especially since they are not the same color too.

I think the dresses are beautiful. However, I, too, would prefer a bit more contrast with your dress.

Maybe I’m not an “experienced” bride…but honestly, who at your wedding is going to even be comparing?? I say if you like them and your ladies like them, get them! They’re a totally separate color and are being worn by BMs..not the Bride! πŸ™‚

I think they’re both gorgeous! Perhaps you can create the contrast with jewelry — like you could be more blinged out, and have the BMs just wear a bracelet and earrings, no necklace.

I think they are very similar. If you love it and are sure go for it! It’s doubtful anyone else will notice.
