I offered my girls to get dresses in navy, cobalt or gray – 4 of 5 have their dresses and #5 wants to know what color to get! Maid/Matron of Honor is wearing Royal Blue. So… should #5 get the bright blue, or go uniform with the others and get navy…
ALL NAVY, except Maid/Matron of Honor…
Or #5 gets the brighter blue…

If you want your Maid/Matron of Honor to stand out, have your Bridesmaid or Best Man get the navy. If you don’t care, then let her choose either way. I think both sets you have posted look amazing! Really cool how you let them all choose different styles and fabrics, letting them show their personalities!! 🙂

I would aske her to please get the darker blue – it lets your Maid/Matron of Honor stand out a little bit.
Love the selections, BTW!

I voted for Navy – because it lets the Maid/Matron of Honor stand out, buuuuuut I think it depends on the fabric because Navy in different types of fabric can look really different – if that’s the case it might be better to go with bright blue for Bridesmaid or Best Man 5

Both sets look great! I like the different styles and fabrics. I’d want my Maid/Matron of Honor to stand out a little bit, so I’d ask the last girl to choose a navy dress. Your wedding party is going to look great either way!

I like the look of the first one best. Love the dresses you chose!

I personally like the Bridesmaid or Best Man all in navy so that the Maid/Matron of Honor stands out. Where, oh where is the asymmetrical dress on the far right from? Please let me know, I love it!

I appreciate the feedback!
@jpatterson – good point about the fabrics! Still-Shopping Bridesmaid or Best Man is looking at the cotton sateen from DB – which I have not seen in these colors in person… Guess I should take a trip over there – might be the deciding factor!
This was the beauty of them choosing their own… Dresses from L to R
#1 – Old Navy Maternity – $15 – She’ll be 8.5 mo. omg 🙂 – cotton knit (on sale)
#2 – Davids Bridal – $99 – cotton sateen
#3 – J.Crew – $229 – taffeta
#4 – Target – $36 – satinish (on sale)
#5 – Saks , Marc Bouwer, Glam It – $300something (on sale) – chiffon and silk
They’ve been purchasing them since about January and got some on sale. I couldn’t have guessed they would have chosen all different fabrics, all different prices. I’m really glad I let them be in control of their own budgets.
The Marc Bouwer is orig. $430 and on sale at BlueFly for $232
