Hi…just wanted to get you guys’ opinion. I am wearing a matte organza gown and I initially wanted my bridesmaids to wear satin taupe dresses. I think the color is flattering and the shine of satin photographs well. When I went with one of my bridesmaids to try on bridesmaid dresses, I was advised against picking shiny dresses for my bridesmaids because mine isnt. Saleslady said the bridesmaids’ dressses should never be shinier than the brides. I have never heard of this rule, but she says that in regular pics that guests will take with their camera, the shiny dresses will pop out more. Then again, I cant find any matte bridesmaids dresses in the same shade of taupe I like…and I kind of think it will all just look dull without a contrast? What do you guys think? Help!
