I honestly wouldn’t care. It would be weird if it was the dress your bridesmaids were wearing but it isn’t. She doesn’t have to consult you at all about what she wears. I wouldn’t waste any time worrying about it.

IMO, it only can look like a bridesmaids dress if it is the same style/color as your BM’s dresses. If not, it is just a pretty strapless dress.

Unless it’s th same as the dress your Bridesmaid or Best Man is wearing who the hell cares?

Any dress that isn’t a bridal gown can potentially be a bridesmaid dress. I wouldn’t be weirded out by it and wouldn’t say anything to her.

Are you sure its obviously bridesmaidsy? Most of them just look like regular dresses until you put multiple people in them.

Meganquita :  a dress is a dress is a dress, “bridesmaid” is only a name – so I’d let it go but…. if that’s the color, she’s out of her ever-loving mind.  And I’m not one of those nutty brides who can’t handle someone else wearing white, but honestly there’s just a limit to what’s appropriate and that one crosses the line.  If it’s some other color, wouldn’t care at all.

From the threads title I thought she wanted to wear the dress your bridesmaids were wearing, which would not be okay. But since it’s just a borrowed/random Bridesmaid or Best Man dress I don’t see any issue. You’re going to be the star no matter what, so don’t worry about what others wear.

This is not an issue on which to waste a moment of your time and energy. It’s a dress.
