@ktmcgwvu08: Honestly, the dress doesn’t have a lot of personality. But I actually think that can be a good thing when it comes to Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses – if you choose a dress that has a distinct ‘look’ the chances are at least one of your BMs won’t be able to pull it off. It’s good to choose something simple that’s more likely to flatter all of your girls.
The dress is pretty and flattering, don’t overthink this.
Looks pretty on you!! Thanks for sharing!!
@starlitgirl: do you all want honest opinions or not? My words may be harsh, but offensive come on.
We’re talking about articles of clothing!
Also, you’d drop out of a friends wedding if they had a dress from david’s bridal? That seems incredibly shallow. I would stand up and support my friend regardless because they mean the world to me (They definitely mean more the me than an article of clothing).
OP- I like them! They are cute 🙂
i actually like them.
I think they look just fine. I understand wanting everything to look how you imagined it, but I think Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are one of the things that should just be plain and simple. Save your energy and money for something that matters more, like your dress or decor – whatever you think is most important to your overall vision.
Afterall, it’s your day, and the eyes should be on you, the bride 🙂
IMO, these dresses look classy enough to fit in with an overall well-done wedding, but plain enough to ensure the guests are paying attention to what matters: the happy couple!
I think they’re cute, and the bee who posted a picture of her wedding party in them showed how they can be styled to be really really lovely!
However I also think that now your BM’s have paid for them, the decision is pretty final. No point agonizing about it, because it would not be nice to try to get your BM’s to switch them at this stage.
I think it’s a perfectly nice Dress. As a bridesmaid, if you chose a dress and I bought it at your request and then you changed your mind i would expect you to buy the new one because I can only afford so many useless dresses and they typically are unreturnable
If you’re going to do something, pay for the new ones…but they still have to deal with the hassle, and you’re basically telling them that what they spent on the first one was totally a waste, and a lot of people really HATE being wasteful and paying for a dress they will never wear and even YOU dislike…
If it really means a lot to you, you should consider doing it, but I think your friends might feel a bit annoyed.
