They don’t have a lot in common with the details of the gowns (neck and waistlines, etc) but they both have simple lines and a relaxed feel so I think they go well together.
There are very few Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses that I would feel happy wearing and that’s one of them
I’d go with a different bm dress. I think if they were strapless that would work out great!
Something about the neckline and straps on the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses looks off to me.
The back of these dresses are very pretty but I cant get the web page to let me save the pic to put up here. Some girls will be wearing short versions and there will be different shades of blues/greens.
My theme is vintage and these are the closets to that theme that my girls could find and agree on.
I don’t think the fabrics look good together. The Bridesmaid or Best Man dress is too shiny for your wedding dress.
The thing is, those dresses don’t seem ‘vintage’ to me. They seem very modern, with clean lines. They’re not ugly at all, but I think they are very different than the lines and style of your dress and they aren’t vintage-y, which is your theme.
Your gown is absolutely gorgeous and gives off a very classy, soft, and romantic feel. I think the Bridesmaid or Best Man gowns you showed us are quite modern due to the straight lines (as ohheavenlyday stated). How about these:
If all your girls agree on them, I’d go with it, just because I know how hard that can be, and it’s important that everyone feels pretty and comfortable. I do think they look great.
But, I LOVE the suggestions from @melisslp Gorgeous and definetly a more classic, vintage look!
@double0bride – Good point about all of the girls agreeing upon them. Sometimes that is half of the “battle”, so to speak. Thanks for the kudos about the dress. I think it’s beautiful too! I wonder what the cost is on them.
@amberdawn – After looking at the gown you posted again, I think I figured out what is “off” to me…it’s the thick straps. If your girls definitely want straps, I’m wondering if they could be modified to be thinner, thus softer looking???
I like your suggestions, thanks ladies, as far as the starps i am not sure actually I will have to check into that. I will show this dress to the girls and see what they say, Thanks ladies.
Ps I think the straps apealled to the girls because a few have a large bust.
