A few of my bridesmaids and I went shopping a few months ago for bridesmaids dress, i’m having an old hollywood themed wedding and decided on black dresses with red bouquets, my bridesmaids loved a dress that we found and I thought the dress could work.. we were getting down to the wire so I just said ‘ok that’ll be the dress’ we ordered the dresses even though I always felt I could find something better but with no time left I did what I had to do.. I don’t hate the dress but I don’t love it either the dress is Alexia 4064 in all black
I recently found a dress that for some reason I never noticed before and think it would have looked AMAZING for my wedding again in black but I also think it would have been more figure flattering (Bari Jay 316)
What do you ladies think? I know I can’t turn back time but is my bridesmaids dress terrible looking? Also if it helps the bridesmaids flowers will look something like this… I am just so nervous that these dresses will not look right at all 🙁 I am in a serious funk

If you’re bridesmaids liked them, then I’m sure they’ll be figure flattering enough. Besides 1. You don’t want them to look as good as you!! and 2. The first dresses look way more “old Hollywood.” the second dress looks more NEW Hollywood. Don’t sweat it. You’re not wearing them.

they are both lovely but i think your original choice will be more flattering on all body types. you made the right choice.

I actually think the first dress goes better with your theme although I like the second dress too.

I think the first dress goes better w/the theme. It’s got a very classic old hollywood vibe to it. The second is very pretty but gives me a different vibe. I think you made the right choice =) stop looking at dresses or you’ll drive yourself insane LOL

really? thanks ladies you really are making me feel a little better. I think im just nervous because i’ve never seen the dress in all black. I really LOVE the second one but I for sure want to make the style have an old hollywood flare so i’m happy everyone thinks the first one works better 🙂
