    Dress #1 - the one shoulder dress - flowy skirt

    Dress #2 - the ballgown - fluffy strapless dress

    I like the first one (one shoulder) because I prefer straps to strapless, especially since your dress has straps. Also, I like the way the first dress lays straight (no pick-ups) similar to your dress.

    i would be happier in the first dress than the second, but i have to be honest that neither are really my taste. if i were a bridesmaid though i would wear either and pretend to love it:)

    I think the first one has the potential to be very unflattering on some body types.  Personally, I’m a 34Dear Daughter, size 8 and that would DEFINITELY give me the “pregnant” look.

    I think the second one is nice if you are not worried about it looking too wedding gown-like. (Personally I would not care, but just wanted to put it out there)

    So if it’s between these two – my vote is for #2.  Also, you might want to add a poll

    I think the first one coordinates better with your dress. The pick-ups on the second are too much.

    I think depending on how many bridesmaids you have the pick-ups could look overwhelming. Your dress is very sleek so I think something along those lines would go best. I’m sure you have looked all over but here are a couple that I found from Alfred Angelo

    I think something like this would look great! It’s the same type of material all the way down, and has a very similar neckline to yours! I think it would compliment beautifully. It’s also from David’s bridal. On sale for $99 on their website!

    i like the first one. the material looks very comfy, and i’m not a pick up kinda girl.

    @JuneBride: If they both looked great, I say go for the one you like more :o)  I think with only two BMs, that second dress wouldn’t be “too much”

    I think both are way different feels than your dress- pick ups too formal and would compete with your dress, but the one strap too modern/trendy for your classic dress. I like the ideas that others posted… I think a fitted top with straps and an a-line skirt would be great.

    I agree with hotchildinthecity—with two bridesmaids the pickups wouldn’t be overwhelming. I pictured 14 bridesmaids all lined up and hitting each other because of the full skirts. Go with what you like or what works best on your ladies ๐Ÿ™‚
