@pinkkathryn:  Haha thanks!!i saw the color combo and fell in love…just a bit of a warning…i went in saying coral but a lot of peoples coral was a bit too pinky. This one is guava and it was exactly what I had pictured! I was a bit nervous about the combo but everyone loved it and ai think it came together well πŸ™‚

@soy:  I agree, I let my girls pick it out and they all liked this one and loved how it fit..and i liked how it looked so it was an easy decision πŸ™‚

@Britt214:  yeah… i noticed there are a lot of shades of “coral”

at the one store i just browsed (we haven’t gone dress shopping yet) but she showed me all the variations and the most corally colors i liked/was thinking of weren’t the ones actually called coral. haha, the shade you picked is what i want! THanks πŸ™‚

@ktmcgwvu08:  Judging from the stock photo, i was going to say, that i think they look okay, but I myself usually would like to wear something covering the knees.

@Britt214:  posted, they actually seem to be a knee lenght on all of the girls. Great. In real life I like them better than on the stock photo.

I think it’s cute! Nobody actually re-wears their Bridesmaid or Best Man dress anyway.

@ktmcgwvu08:  It’s fine.  Really, what’s hideous about it? 

If you change the dress, though, then you really need to buy the new ones or reimburse your BM’s for the one they already bought. Asking them to eat the cost of two dresses because you changed your mind would be pretty outrageous.

Definitely not hideous. When I saw the link I actually had a specific DB dress in mine that I’ve seen at four weddings in the past 18 months and think is ugly. But that’s definitely not it! I think it’s cute and personally wouldn’t mind wearing it.

I’ll be wearing that dress in “Meadow” in May! I was a little nervous when the bride told me she just went ahead and chose the dress without her BMs (which is fine of course, especially since her BMs are scattered all over the country) because a lot of dresses accentuate my lovehandles when I’d rather them be hidden lol. I mean it’s not really about me anyway but it’s always nice to feel comfortable in what you’re wearing! But I think the dress is pretty flattering! Her ceremony will be on the beach so I think she made a great choice! Some of us are wearing this color and some are wearing coral!

It still needs altered a little bit, but here it is if you wanted another real-life model lol (excuse the wrinkles and the tilted mirror – I think it makes the dress look a little longer than it really is, but I’m only 5’2 so it might just be longTongue Out)

OP, these are the dresses that my BMs and I picked for my wedding (in navy) and we all love them! They are flattering on a wide-variety of body types and when you have as many BMs as I do, that’s an important thing. Plus, they were cost-effective and handy to order through DB because I have BMs who live over 1,000 miles away right now.. so I don’t think they’re ugly at all! πŸ˜›
