So I think I may have finally found “THE” dress – its the “Rachael” dress from Maggie Sotero. I didn’t think that I would initially get a big ballgown dress but I just fell in love with it when I tried it on!
Here is my dilemma – I already decided what my bridesmaids’ dresses would be before I decided on my dress. It is style #7116 from Alfred Angelo. I loved these bridesmaid dresses because of the shade of pink (hard to find in other dresses) and they were also super comfortable yet still flattering on my bridesmaids. Now I am worried that my wedding dress may be too “over the top” and too fancy for what I picked for my bridesmaid dresses! What do y’all think? Do you think my dress would still work with the bridesmaid dresses? I really do not want to change the bridesmaid dresses if I don’t have to – in my heart, I feel like they will still work together but I’m still so confused!
Here is the 2nd dilemma: we also decided that the groom and the groomsmen will be wearing blue/white seersucker suits. Again, this was decided before I even started trying on wedding dresses. Now I’m not sure if my dress would “work” with the seersucker, and more importantly, whether my groom will be “fancy” enough next to me.
What do you all think??? Get new bridesmaid dresses? Try different suits? Also, does this dress even look good on me??? Maybe I’m freaking out over nothing!

You look beautiful. I don’t think it’s too fancy though. I think it will work.

I think the two dresses go great together. They’re a similar cut/shape and honestly the bridesmaid dresses should be less flashy than the bride’s! 😉 You’re suppose to stand out! It’s your wedding day!

first off-ADORABLE bridesmaid dresses!! secondly, your dress is beautiful!! I don’t think it’s too ‘over the top’. When you said ballgown I pictured some huge poofy thing (not my style, but to anyone who reads this and has a ballgown, to each her own). Your dress isn’t a poofy ballgown type dress..looks more A line to me. It’s perfect, in my opinion 🙂

I think they are a good match. Even if your dress WAS really fancy it’s YOUR wedding day. You are SUPPOSED to be the center of attention. I think you made a good choice though, for both your dress and the bridesmaids dresses.

You look lovely in your gown, and I don’t think it is too fancy at all. You made great choices, for both your gown and the bridesmaid dresses.
I would have to see a picture of the guys outfits before I could give my opinion on those, but base on what you have shown us here, I think you will be fine.

You should wear what you want to! No one pays attention to bms dresses anyway 🙂

@JennyW1: Now, that’s not completely true…. They pay attention to the BMs’ dresses if they’re REALLY ugly!!!! Of course, that’s not the case this time, because these are really cute.

LOL as I was reading I was thinking it was going to be a HUGE dress with a ton of bling and way over the top. It is far from that. Your dress is beautiful! I think it will pair wonderfully with your maids dresses. Congrats on finding such a beautiful dress.
