My girls compliment my dress well.    I am in Alfred Angelo 1136 in light gold and my girls are in Alfred Angelo 7027 in Cherry Red.    I picked my dress out and then they picked theirs out with in an hour.

I do not think there is a rule or a “should” when it comes to bridesmaids dresses. It is personal preference.

Personally I wanted some aspects to match. Both me and the girls have sweatheart necklines. I have atrumpet skirt and the girls have a small flare at the bottom on theirs as well.

Personally, I prefer the BM’s dresses when they are NOT too similar of a look or style to the bride.  I like something that complements, and obviously looks good, but nothing too ‘matchy’.

My dress has a chiffon sash and train, and the BMs dresses are chiffon.  Both are sweetheart neckline, but I don’t think they look alike otherwise. 

It took me over a year to pick these out and I loooooove them.

@Mermaid– I love your dresses!  Those are beautiful!

 

My BMs dresses don’t really have a similar neckline or shape to my dress, but both dresses are made of silk chiffon, so it has a similar feel.

 

My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are J Crew Sophia dresses in Vintage Blue silk chiffon:

And my dress is the Pronovias Gabon

I don’t think the bridesmaids dresses should look a lot like the wedding dress, but they should at least look like they belong in the same wedding together.  One thing I did was pick a one shouldered dress for my bridesmaids, because I actually really wanted a one shoulder dress for myself but couldn’t find one that worked…so I’m living vicariously through them 🙂

Here’s my dress and my bridesmaids’ dresses.

I’m not sure mine actually match my dress in any way, but I love them, and particularly love the colour, so I’m happy.
