@starlitgirl:  Ha one of the pictures was mine…to each her own, ehhh?! I thought they looked cute, they liked them, i got a ton of compliments from everyone about the dresses so whatever. You can never please everyone…if she gets off saying that, whatevs ๐Ÿ™‚ Just glad that my friends are true friends and would not bow out if they did not want a dress (and well, they picked them as well)

@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.

@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!

@CurlyCue:  Saying that you don’t like the dress is one thing, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but purposely referencing users pictures and saying they look cheap? Yea. That’s offensive. 

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

@NickysGirl14:  If you buy a dress you hate for a friend more power to you. I get to choose how I spend my money and a DB dress is not it.  Sitting in the audience as a wedding guest is supporting the bride too. 

I concede,

@Britt214:  referencing your photo and the other poster’s to illustrate my point was not nice.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 
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

@ktmcgwvu08:  Yeah, if you pay them back for a less expensive dress and then ask them to buy a more expensive one, that’s still not very nice and they WILL be annoyed.

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.

@ktmcgwvu08:  The hardest thing about wedding planning is the endless options.  I think that this is more of an issue of seeing something and thinking, “man I wish I picked *that* one!” than the dresses actually not looking okay.  I actually really like them and looking at the real life photos think they look very flattering to the girls wearing them.  So, don’t stress and STOP searching other dresses, it will only make you question your decision more.  You picked nice dresses, relax ๐Ÿ™‚
