Sure, it’s a little crazy, but it sounds like it fits in with the theme of your wedding.

Just make sure that your girls know that it’s totally up to them. I say that because it might not be everyone’s tastes, and you don’t want them to feel pressured.

I say go for it! I also think it is a good idea to have you Maid/Matron of Honor in it and the others in yellow or navy. If you did that, then you would have a little character without it being too overwhelming! 🙂

I love the dress as well, and I would totally wear it.  But to be honest I think it might end up looking a bit busy with such a large bridal party.  I’m with hisMrs on maybe only having your Maid/Matron of Honor in it and the other girls in dresses with the right accents.  Or maybe every other BM?  If you go this route, you might consider picking a color/fabric/length and allowing your BM’s to pick their own dress.  That might give you a bit of the eclectic feel you sound like you might want, without creating a palette that’s overwhelmed with patterns.

I love it.  So much better than the traditional bridesmaid-y dresses.

i like the dress itself but i definatley agree with the above posters in saying that 6 ladies

all in that dress might make your guests a little dizzy. I really like FizicsGirl’s idea in having every other girl where tha dress

I like it, but I think it would be too much for 6 girls to all have it.  Your colors are yellow and navy?  I would suggest having the Maid/Matron of Honor in this dress and then having the other 5 in plain yellow, similar style dresses.
