I really like your dress, and I think the bridesmaid dress is really nice, too, but unfortunately, I don’t think the two match together at all.  Other than the different color options, what is it that you like about that bridesmaid dress?  Maybe we can help you find something that has those elements but that matches your dress a bit more.

I agree with green eyed moon. They don’t really work and if your girls are different sizes that might be a problem. I look horrible in that style! LOL  Let us help you- show us what you like.

I personally think those are a bit mod squad with the colors. I know that’s what you’re going for, but this is just my opinion.

However, I think long chiffon would work well with your dress. My dress is somewhat similar, as it has a lot of beaded details all over the bodice. I’m going with long chiffon dresses. My top contender is David’s Bridal F14010. It’s one shouldered, has a flower detail and is rouched all the way to the hips. The rouching is extremely flattering- will definitely help with anyone that has a little tummy, but also will work on anyone who is a twig. Plus, the top section is high cut enough to be secure for anyone with a big bust. And it’s only $149! Sorry it doesn’t have anything going on vertically, but it’s something for you to maybe think about.

ETA: here’s a picture, if it helps! Website photos aren’t always that useful…

@confettiegg2000: Thanks 🙂

And I looked at your pictures again and I like the color combo on dress #1 best- if you’re still looking for opinions! I think that the yellow looks really nice next to just a touch of neutral color. Nothing too harsh. As I continue to look for bridesmaids dresses I’ll keep you in mind if I see any interesting color combos. Off the top of my head I do know that Alfred Angelo has a lot of dresses with sashes that you can use for different colors- nothing vertically that I can think of though. Good luck!

@confettiegg2000: I think that maybe you are getting too hung up on the colors. I personally would not care to wear a dress with three different colored panels. Also, when I look at your dress in general it is about the romantic, vintage feeling which is more important than the detail of the vertical lace. You know that you are looking for a flowing fabric. Since you want different, but also want some control, I would suggest that you look for a bridesmaids dress line that has a few different shades of yellow in it then see what dresses will fit your look and price range. You could even line them up in ombre form. If you want the maid of honor to stick out she could have her own color or a special sash. 

 

This is just an example, I choose these because the silohette is similar to your gown, the level of formality seem similar, they are not chiffon but do have movement, they have a sash, and the pleated skirt is a vertical element, Unfortunately these are out of your price range, but maybe you could find something similar.

@confettiegg2000: i love love love maggie sottero dresses and that one is so flattering on you!

 

for what its worth, i like the shorter dress of these 2! the long one is pretty, but i think the short ones are a nice compliment to the look and style of your dress. they have a “classic” look to them 🙂

I love that Maggie dress.  It’s evokes images of a 20’s garden wedding.  (And it looks great on you.)

Perhaps for the bridesmaids something lighter, like: http://www.modcloth.com/Modcloth/Womens/Dresses/-Parlor-Party-Dress 

or

I’d definitely go short.  The Maggie dress isn’t too formal, and you don’t want the bridesmaids dresses to look more formal than the bride.

i definitely like the second set of dresses you posted better than the first set.  I’m sure it is individual taste dependent but that is my opinion if it helps!
