Do you think that the bridesmaids’ dresses have to match or echo the wedding dress? I think it would be really neat to show a picture of your dress with the bridesmaids dresses for comparison!
I’ll go first, though I’m still deciding.
Possibly bridesmaid dress:

Hmmm, I hope it’s not that important because mine probably don’t ;o)
This is my dress, and my bridesmaids chose a variety of short satin/silk taffeta dresses from DB.

I don’t think so. Here’s my dress:
And here is what the bridesmaids will be wearing:

@Satin -WHAT Bridesmaid or Best Man dress is that?! I LOVE it! Like, as a dress for a black tie thing I have to go to soon, Im already married lol.
And my dresses were actually kind of opposite…mine was strapless, theirs was halter…I had a-line, theirs were fitted.

No at all – I purposely chose a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress that had a sleeker shape because I’m wearing a ball gown. Here are pics of my dress and the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses (note Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses will be in plum)

@KellyV It is a Mori Lee dress, here’s the link: http://www.morilee.com/Bridesmaids/Bridesmaids/dressint.php?idves=261&idcat=2&idscat=5&npic=0&npag=1&bsel=
@lanany10 I like the idea of having a more slender shape to the bridesmaids dresses. Maybe the dress I posted plus my gigantic gown would be way too much poof!

Nope…mine don’t match. Except for the fact that they are both TOTALLY awesome! lol! 😉 They’re dresses are short and fitted, and mine is long andf a-line.
Here is a little collage I made with both dresses and the flowers we’ve used as our centerpiece inspiration.

The neckline of the two dresses are similar for me: both are crossed sweetheart style. I wanted the two styles to have something in common, but I didn’t want the bridesmaids dresses to be a replica of what I will be wearing!
(Note that my dress will be a strapless.)

both of mine were bateau necklines, but part of that was just bc we had a conservative winter wedding…mine was trumpet, and I saw one I liked, but we ended up going with a lines for them….very flattering style overall

@Satin: That’s kind of what I was thinking too. I didn’t want the pictures to be overtaken by a bunch of giant ballgowns!

Nope, not at all. My avatar is my dress and here is my Bridesmaid or Best Man dress:
Very different styles..

I don’t think they should match a whole lot, but should look like they at least belong in the same wedding 🙂
Post # 14
mine do, in that the dresses they are wearing (3 styles) all have fabric rosettes, and i’m wearing a belt with fabric rosettes as well
those are 2 of the dresses with my dress and belt, but their dresses will be green

i wanted their dresses to have the same feel and formality, but i wanted my dress to stand out.

Very nice ladies.
I am hoping that mine will flow together. I am making the girls dresses in tea length. The color is celedon (a sagey green).
