Hello! I am torn. i fell in love with a bridesmaid dress at Davids Bridal… but am not crazy about any of the colors in comes in. I found a color I love at Alfred Angelo but am not loving the dress (it is ok).
I am having a wedding on the beach in November if that helps with opinions. I am looking for a color that will pop against the ocean so was leaving toward a purple.
If you have time to check out my options and post your opinion it would be greatly appreciated!!!
David’s bridal style number F14169 in either Sangria or Regency
Alfred Angelo style number 7063 in violet with violet trim

Think it depends on your girls’ figures. I recently saw pictures from an AWESOME wedding, but the girls were all in strapless chiffon dresses and I must admit that some of them were not flattered by the dresses. Way too much boob, not a flattering material, etc. I think you should see these on your ladies before you decide… although I lean toward the DB dress in red because I don’t think I’d be able to wear a violet colored halter dress again after the wedding. Just my $.02!

I like the shape of the DB dress. It seems more forgiving than the AA dress. I agree that it depends what it looks like on your BMs figures, but if that is a non-issue then I like the style best of the DB. I voted Sangria because Regency is pretty dark (and darker in person.)

I think your girls figures should really be the deciding factor. I had my sis try on a chiffon dress at DB and we found that, even as great a figure she has, it was not very flattering and the material was VERY clingy!
I would suggest taking the girls in to TRY on dresses. We ultimately decided on this dress b/c it was the MOST flattering on for all the girls. Believe me when I say it looks much better on than in the pic where most of the other (12 dresses) looked better in the picture.

The hard part is 4 of my 5 girls are out of state. So they cant even come with me to pick the dresses. I had my sister and my local girl come with my last week and they both like both dresses. The other girls will be fine with what we decide. I have found that NONE of the colors online ever look that way in real life. Ugh!

@destiny1120: Ooh I love the Sangria! Very cute! It’s very rich and I believe would look best on a variety of skin tones. Let us know which one you pick! Huggs

I like the davids bridal dress better. As far as color, I admit I like the regency better in general, but as far as “popping” against the ocean, I think Sangria is the way to go…
