I like the pretty pastels! I was scared when I saw the JB dress, but then I read your explanation. Very cute, but the blue has shorter bows than the purple. Can the bows be altered to look more similiar?

I like the maids in different colors and think the lilac and light blue look really pretty together. The only thing a little "off" are the different bows… is there a way to make them all the same?

With the right flowers, I think it will work.

I think you can make it work.

The dresses look nice on your gals.  I think I’m confused though.  Are you asking if it would work to use the two different styles at the same time?  Like half the girls have the bow across the waist and then half of them have the higher bow?  And all of the dresses are in lilac, with white (or eggplant?) bows?  Or will the bows be different colors?  Or are the dresses going to be completely different colors?  I’m totally lost. 😉

I think the two different styles would work well, but I don’t know if it would be too much of a contrast with the bows being different colors.  If it were me, if I were going to use two different styles, I would make them the same color.

I am confused about the colors as well.  If all the dresses are going to be the same color or shades of purple, I think it will look fine.  I actually like the fact that the bows are different.

 I know you want them to be happy,but will YOU be happy with them in different styles? I think the one that would universally flatter them all is the higher waisted one with the longer bow. Why can’t you just say after looking at the pictures you decided you prefer one style over the other and make it simple?

I personally like them to be a little different, but it’s all what makes you happy!

I have to agree with smyley… the most flattering choice on all your girls would be the empire waist bow! The bow around the natural waist (BM 1,3 & 5) can sometimes make even the tiniest lady look very wide.

Regardless, if you have your heart set on different dresses– then go for it. Those styles definitely do match! Good luck & let us know what you choose 🙂
