    So normally I think matching the bride’s and bridesmaids’ dresses is silly, but I think in this case you’re right. The lines of your dress (which I really like BTW) don’t go with the front of the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress. I like both 2 and 3, but I like the top of 3 (it looks like something more than just plain fabric) and the a-line skirt of 2. Not all girls’ hips and thighs look good in a column cut, whereas an a-line hides flaws.

    I think that not having the BM’s dress match yours is fine, but I think you’re right as well. I like the 3rd option with a straight skirt the best. = )

    Have they bought the dress yet?  Because I think the second is a better fit, but I think the first would have looked fine too.  I don’t think it’s worth the trouble to get a different dress if they already ordered it, you know what I mean?  But if you’re still deciding then I would go for the second.

    The first dress with the bow from JC Crew is my FDIL’s choice for her bridesmaids also.  She gave her girls a choice between 3 different dresses, and all 8 of them chose that one even though it was the most expensive!  They all said they would definitely wear them again.  They are ordering it in Caspian Blue.  The dresses don’t look anything like the bride’s dress (Enzoani “Dulcina”) but she doesn’t care a bit!

    I think they are very cute dresses! I think that dress #2 would be most figure flattering for different sizes though if that is an issue 🙂

    I really like the first one, I think it’s your originial one right?  I would say to keep it, the others are nice, but the first one is much more different and it doesn’t clash or compete with your gown.
