Hello all! My Maid/Matron of Honor dress is a strapless satin pickup gown with sash, from Davids. My original gown was a strapless pickup ball gown as well. Now I have to find a new dress that fits, and I am wondering how formal I have to go so that I match with the formality of the Maid/Matron of Honor dress? I don’t want her to look more formal then I do! Any thoughts? TIA!

Hi Brasty2010: I don’t thnk that your dress needs pickups, but it should definitely be long, perhaps lace would be really could or the ruching with a brooch would be gorgeous. Did you change your mind from your original dress?

I agree with crebre80, you dont need pick ups. Really, find a dress you love and if you have to shorten the Maid/Matron of Honor dress or dress it down a bit – fine. But be in a dress you feel bridal and beautiful in regardless of what the Maid/Matron of Honor is wearing.
