No worries, time50.  I think it is pretty hard for your bridesmaids to drown you out on your wedding day, but you do need to be aware of the general style of your wedding and dress…which it seems like you do. 

As long as you choose something that matches the formality of your dress, you should be ok.  i.e. if your dress is a modified trumpet with a cathedral train, but is in matte satin…you still don’t want to dress your ladies down too much because the overall style of your dress is formal.  Likewise, if you have a matte satin sheath dress perfect for a low-key beach wedding, you don’t want your maids in formal, floor length, overly-ornate dresses.

I really think that the overall style will set the tone rather than the fabric of the dresses.  And in the end…they all have to attend the event wearing the same dress as someone else…as opposed to you who gets to show up in white 🙂

I agree with Corn.  It’s hard enough trying to find Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses in the color scheme that you want, so do that first.  If the material of the dress looks good, then go for it.  I don’t think it needs to be a specific type based on what your wedding gown is made of.

And there’s no way they’ll drown you out.  You’ll be the beautiful bride in all white, and the veil will tip people off, too! 

Unless of course, you pick a neon color in bright shiny material or sequins for your BMs.  That might be a little distracting .
