    I’m not sure how it will fit in – its definitely not your traditional bridesmaid dress, though I agree its beautiful. Can you post the other dresses? It’d help us gauge how this fits with the whole bridal party “look.”

    I think it’s really classy and if you gave them “off the rack LBD” criteria, this definitely fits. I like it. I wanna see what everyone else is wearing, too! But since they’re all in black, I don’t think the styles matter as much. a bunch of LBDs just goes better than a bunch of, say, red, in varying styles. Me thinks anyways.

    Also, i’m jealosu of your friend’s awesome fashion hook up =]

    Um….It depends on what the other girls are wearing. I understand you’re giving them all the opportunity to pick off the rack but at the same time you want them all to have the same sorta feel right? While its cute as all get out…it ultimately speaks business meeting to me. If however, your other girls are gonna be this covered up then she should def go with it.

    This is tough one because it is a pretty dress, but I am not sure it really goes with the rest all that well. The rest seem to have more of a common denominator, she might stand out a little.

    I think it’ll still all fit together just fine. Especially b/c they’re all in black. The only big difference, stylewise, is the dress has long sleeves and the rest of the dresses are “party” style dresses. And it’s a gauzy chiffon. It doesn’t necessarily “fit” because it’s a different style and material, but I think once you line them all up, they’re all in black, they’re all styled and have bouquets, nobody’ll think, “hmm that girls’ dress look weird” or anything. It’s very stylish so I think it’ll be fine. I still say give her the thumbs up; it’ll look great all together. I’ve seen group photos where the dresses aren’t 100% cohesive and it looks great. Representative of the bridesmaid, too =]

    Ok I just saw your other post. I would send her these pics and ask her if she thinks she can find and love something in this area. The other 3 girls dresses are all somewhat similar and her dress is WAY different.

    It’s a pretty dress, but it doesn’t match the style of the other dresses.  I would probably recommend she find something sleeveless to go along with the other dresses.

    I actually am not a big fan of the dress, honestly.  I think it would look a little dowdy on most people.  When I see the other dresses, it really cements my belief that she should look for something else.  Those have a much different feel to them, as previous posters have said, very “party”, and are all made of satin.  Hers isn’t either of those things.  I think it’s just going to look really out of place when she’s standing up there.  Like she didn’t get a memo or something.

    It. Is. Stunning. It is super classy and would look great with the other dresses. To each their own, right?

    Now that I see the other dresses, I’m not crazy about it. Its a nice dress, but not really a wedding party dress. Have you shown your friend what the other girls are wearing? Since your friend is into fashion, maybe if you show her the other dresses and challenge her to find something that complements the overall look of the wedding party, she’ll find something a little more suited for your event.

    I think the dress is gorgeous but unless she is your maid of honor, and thus it were okay for her to stand out a little bit, I would send her the pictures of the other 3 dresses and ask that she keep looking. The material is not only obviously different, but with her being the only one with sleeves and the rest being sleeveless, she’d stand out like a green thumb.

    I think the right shoes and jewelry would really dress it up and it would be super cute. Part of the charm of having everyone choose their own dress is so that each person’s individual style shows through. Your friend is living in NYC working for fashion designers, so I’m sure she has her own unique viewpoint.
