    Love the dress! Very pretty! Do you have any pics of you in it?

    I love the black dresses. Black always says “formal and elegant” to me, whereas with colored dresses, it really depends on the style of the dress. Also, black dresses are often more Bridesmaid or Best Man friendly, as they could potentially have it altered into a classic LBD to be worn again and again.

    What month are you getting married in and what do you want the “feel” of your wedding to be.

    I’m going for romantic and elegant in mine, too, and the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are seriously keeping me up at night. I liked a color called “black rose” or any other really deep burgandy-wine color to go with my champagne and metal-tone candle and lantern-lit wedding. But the more I think about it, I might just scrap the colored dress and opt for black with maybe a champagne sash and a pretty brooch or something because I think that Black is more romantic and elegant. (not to mention figure-friendly for girls)

    Sorry, you werent looking for all of that information, lol, I just mean to say that they’re tougher decisions than I realized! lol. Can’t wait to see how your poll goes and what other bees think!

    I like red on cream personally. it’s softer and I think it would look great with your dress. They are both easy to match with though so you can’t go wrong with either.

    I really liked the idea of black bridesmaid dresses until my fiance told me he thinks it makes the wedding look like a funeral (guy’s perspective! I mean absolutely no offense to anyone who chooses black dresses)

    That said, I think either would be lovely but my personal choice would probably be red, but maybe a bit darker than your picture.

    I like the black dresses because they have an elegant and sophisticated look. The red dresses are pretty but I don’t necessarily think of red as a soft romantic color – even though it’s the Valentines Day color and traditional color of love etc. Because your dress is soft and whimsical, I think it would go better with something more subtle and subdued than having your bridesmaids in red.

    I wanted to add, I was going for the same feel, romantic and elegant, and my Maid/Matron of Honor wore a maroon dress. It was her own pick, I had told her she could choose any color and dress she wanted. I think it worked and didn’t look too flashy because I didn’t have any other bridesmaids and her red was a very dark one.
