Sorry, but the dress looks super casual to me.  I am not sure that accessories and makeup can bring the dresses up to the dressiness level of suits.  Sorry!

Hmmm… I personally think it might be kinda informal.  Not just because of the style, but the material.  I’d probably try to go for something short but still a bit more dressy.  Its super cute though.  And this is your wedding so if you like it, don’t worry about it!  With the men wearing suits as opposed to tux’s, I think you can get away with a lot more.  Did you buy them already?  If you end up deciding its not gonna work and you already purchased them, you can always give them the dress as part of their gifts.

that dress doesn’t say semi-formal. Do you have a David’s Bridal nearby? I’m getting my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses there. ($99) and they are a little more dressy. My color is Navy Blue too. good luck!

They look super casual to me!

I think your guests will look overdressed compared to your BMs and I don’t think your BMs will match the groomsmen.

I agree, they’re a bit casual because the top resembles a t-shirt. I think with a suit, the dresses need to be more formal, but you can definitely make the dresses knee-length to make it more semi-formal. Modcloth.com has some cute knee-length party dresses in navy blue.

I agree with the others – it’s just too casual.  I actually wouldn’t feel like I could wear that dress to work, let alone in a wedding.

I do love the tree dress.  Just not for a wedding.

Sorry, I also think they are too casual, but if that is the look that you are going for, then they would look great.

I have to agree with the other ladies.  I absolutly LOVE jersey dresses but I just think this style is hard to “dress-up” to look formal. I think the dress is very cute but me personally, I would wear this dress with flip flops and a straw bag to go shopping on the boardwalk.  Not necessarily to attend a wedding in.  Alfred Angelo sells some great jersey dresses as does many other stores.  If you want the flowy look I would go for a beautiful maxi dress.  Like this:

I must agree; not my favorite. But I’d like to see them on your actual bridesmaid. None of the pictures are selling it for me. They are too form fitting for that size. I think if they were bigger they would look better.

Yeah, a bit too casual for a semi-formal wedding. I think the BMs will be underdressed compared to the GMs and the other guests.

A little too casual . . . unless you’re doing a casual bbq.  Check out some of the party dresses at Target.  They’re cute and inexpensive.

Agree with PP.  Too casual if you’re going for a semi-formal wedding.

Agree with bridegrl that David’s has a huge selection in blue.  And they have jersey dresses if that’s the look you’re going for.
