I am looking at possibly choosing a dress that is 2 colors (we’re using dark red and dark purple as our wedding colors). Its not a bridesmaids dress in general, its actually a cocktail dress that I found on sale. What do you bees think? Do you think this would be a good bridesmaids dress? i’ve asked all my girls and most of them seem to be ok with it.

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.

Great question! I’ve been thinking the same!

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 have 6 bridesmaids! I liked that it was different, and not just the same one-color bridesmaids dress. I’m going for a dark romantic look….we’re not set on a dress yet, but they all seemed to like this one…

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!
