For me this is too similar. Even if you lost the flower it would be better. I wouldn’t want it to look like my girls were wearing a hemmed/dyed version of my dress.

Hmmm. They are pretty similar. If you like the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and don’t mind the similarity – go for it! I think its fine and would look good in pictures.

But if you think you’d be upset getting comments like “Oh wow! Your dresses look the same!” or “Is that the same dress in a different colour?” then you probably shouldn’t do it.

I think its too similar..   but if you like the look of it then go for it. I personally would go for something with a different neckline altogether but thats just me

I don’t think they’re too similar.  Maybe because the color and length are so different, to me it looks more like, hey we sort of match, but more reflect each other.  Like, a mini me wedding dress.  (Sorry, I don’t know if that’s a good/helpful description).

I personally like the similiarity between the two…I think that creates a nice feeling of consistancy.  I think ultimately though, the question to ask yourself is…do you feel like the dresses are too similiar?  Do they take away from the special feeling you’d have about you being in a wedding dress?  Do you feel that your bridal party can look the same (or do they need to look different) for you to feel like you’re the right amount in the spotlight?  (Which you totally will be because it’ll be your wedding day and you’ll be so beautiful!) 

But, I have to say I do like both dresses.  And I agree with LGenz that an option to allow for a bit of difference could be removing the flower.
