    I like patterned dresses, but more of 1 color with a neutral, like cream or white or tan etc. That one kinda hurts my eyes, but if you like it then go for it!

    I like patterned dresses including the one you have, my only concern is that this pattern is so busy how is it going to photograph?  I would talk to your photographer or ask a photographer about how best to photograph the dress.

    I am doing a two tone dress, ivory on top and navy on the bottom, it is my favorite wedding detail so far. I think patterns and multiple color bridesmaid dresses are becoming chic and are going to be there to stay, they help with the awful “BM dress” stereotype. I say go for it. I think the colors are calm enough that it will look great… however how many girls are you having?

    I really like that dress!  And, it’s definitely re-wearable!

    I love this soo much. It wasn’t until after that I had seen patterned bridesmaid dresses and if I had seen them earlier I would have def chosen something patterened.  My only question is what would you do for flowers?

    I think it’s gorgeous. I would go for it. My friend had her bridesmaids wear patterned dresses and it looked awesome. I saw do it!

    I WISH WISH WISH I could find a patterned dress for my girls. I would have preferred a patterned dress to a solid color dress. My colors are burgundy, teal blue, plum, gray. I wanted to get a dress with a burgundy background, and either teal blue or plum patterned on the dress, but I haven’t been able to find one yet.

    Yes! I basically based my theme off my bridesmaid dress.

    I think typically I would say NO, but these COLORS work! 

    The belt breaks it up for me too! I would definitely put my Maid/Matron of Honor in this and have the girls do solids! But if you are bold and stylish, fashion forward, go with it! 

    =] Great find!

    I say YES. DB actually sold a patterned Bridesmaid or Best Man dress last year and I really wanted something like that (i wasn’t engaged yet though, so i was just keeping it in mind), but when I went to look for one, they didn’t carry it anymore and I couldnt find one I liked. I say go for it!
