    I personally think it is beautiful and is also a Renaissance and Greek tradition from what I have researched.  My dress has an unusual neckline and is long with lace detailing and applique on taffeta fabric.  I plan to have an outdoor early summer wedding in Kansas (very warm weather!!!!) white dresses would allow for all my bridesmaids to not be miserable (assuming the material is breathable).  I plan to coordinate their dresses to mine using the lace.  I plan to find all over lace knee-length cotton dresses for my bridesmaids and use satin sashes in my wedding color scheme.  I cannot wait because I know it will be beauiful!

    I think it looks great and very elegant. I really considered it for a while, except all my family and friends thought it would be terrible.

    I think the key is that the brides must look more bride-y then the bridesmaids (sorry that is a terrible sentence). What I mean is that I think its looks best when the bride wheres something that clearly looks like a wedding gown (and possibly a veil), and the bridesmaids where something must more simple. cocktail dresses for the BMs makes that distinction obvious because then the bride is the only formal, floor length dress.

    Totally agree with Miss Galaxy. I would do champagne, blush, or some variance of white for my Bridesmaid or Best Man, but not the same shade of white as me. Though, Pippa pulled it off well…

    It’s not for me but my favorite motto is “It’s your wedding, you can do whatever you want.”

    I love the look of it, but I don’t think I could ever do it.. I’m too into colour.

    @Miss Galaxy: That first dress you posted is gorgeous! Where did you find it?

    Kate Moss did it. Just look at how absurdly gorgeous it can be to have everyone in cream or ivory:

    I don’t like any of those photos! I definitely wouldn’t do that. If I were having a large bridal party, I’d want everyone in black except me

    Not a fan, personally… the one someone posted with mismatched light blush and taupe and ivory (similar tones, but not all matching) looks okay, but I really just don’t like the rest. I mean, they’re pretty, they just don’t look like they’re wedding photos.

    I like the concept, as long as there is something really clear to differentiate the bride from the bridesmaids.  If everyone is wearing long white dresses, everyone looks like brides to me!  Espeically since I love the casual bridal look so many of these bridesmaids dresses I think would be nice enough for a wedding dress.  If the bridesmaids are wearing short dresses, that could work.

    Personally, it’s not something I would do. I think the bride should stand out from the rest. I’ve seen weddings with bridesmaids in champagne dresses that looks amazing.

    wouldn’t do it personally — maybe a champagne, beige, or really pale blush but not ivory or white

    I think that ivory bridesmaid dresses are very pretty.

    That being said, I was a guest at a wedding this summer and the bridesmaids were wearing short ivory lace dresses (the bride was wearing a long ivory lace dress) … But so were several guests! It was very difficult to tell them apart. I know there are people who dress in the wedding colours unintentionally … But this was just intense!
