    If I were in your shoes – I would get your dress first. Some dresses just end up looking odd together. It’s less about the color and more about the formality. What if you end up finding something far less formal than the Monique Lhuillier (it looks to be taffeta which is very heavy and reads more formal than say a chiffon gown). Just my opinion though! Of the two choices, I like the Monique Lhuillier but if I had to guess, you are looking at $300 (at least) for that gown.

    David’s Bridal has something along similar lines for $149.00 (the neckline is different but it has pockets)!

    I’d get your dress first but I like the first dress you posted.

    I agree– get your dress first. It really does help with the decision.

    Dress yourself first. I had different bridesmaid dresses in mind before I found my wedding dress…so your opinion could change when you find “the dress”.

    I agree with prior posters telling you to choose your gown first. That’s really important.

    I personally like the first dress. I think it has a simple sexiness to it!

    The second choice looks a little promish.

    I like the black dress. The second one is positively awful, IMO.

    Definitely find your dress first. You still have a few months before you absolutely need to decide on a bridesmaid dress.

    You should pick out and buy your dress first. What happens if you try on a full laced gown and fall in love with it? Then the black lace bridal gowns will match your dress too much and you wont stand out. You never know what dress you are going to fall in love with until you physically try them on.
