…but it’s not for my dress!!
I went out Bridesmaid or Best Man dress shopping last weekend, and we found a wonderful dress for all the girls. I was so excited, until I showed the pics to my Fiance who wasn’t to thrilled… I think the term ‘caveman dress’ was used. Now I’m thinking about a dress that I’ve had my eye on at another store, but they didn’t have it in stock at the mall we went to, and I was so sold on the one we chose that I figured it was okay that they didn’t try on the other one. To top it all off, one of the girls bought the dress as a ‘final sale’, so now it would be a big deal to return them in the event that I DID want to switch.
Talk me off the ledge, girls! I’m so confused 🙁
Here is the dress we went with: (They will ALL be in pink; we just didn’t have enough sizes all in pink when trying them on for them)
Here is the link to the actual dress: http://www.jacob.ca/a080774k501
Here is the dress I’m torn over (on me…)
And here it is on the rack:
And finally, here is the link to the dress: http://www.lechateau.com/style/jump/Dress-Shop-659/productDetail/Shop-the-look/DRESSSHOP659/cat220125;jsessionid=B2F3E4FFF4E0C689FB850C2DA55E1FDD
So.. what do you think? Am I being crazy, or did I act way too fast?

I like the dress you chose a lot better. The other dress is shiny and not as flattering. Your girls look great in the first dress. Don’t listen to Fiance, men don’t know fashion.

I agree, I like the dress you chose as well.

I personally like the dresses you chose better. I can see why your Fiance said “cave man”, but without knowing that I would never think that. I like them!

I like the original dress much better. Once the girls are in heels and dolled up with jewelry, it will look anything BUT caveman.

I agree that the first dress looks much better!

I like the first one much more – the second looks kinda like my robe! The girls look awesome in the ones you picked, don’t worry!

the second dress looks pretty…but reminds me of a bath robe?? The dress you picked is stunning! And seriously nothing to have regret over Are youre girls gonna be in heels or flats??

The second one is gorgeous, but it’s a bit bathroom robe/geisha girl.

OMG, first one is gorgeous! Great colour!
I kind of get where he is coming from with the “caveman” comment but only b/c it’s one-shouldered, I actually knew it would be before I even saw the pic! lol
But just b/c I get it, it doesn’t mean I agree!
I agree with PP saying that men don’t know fashion. Even though my Fiance dressed well, he still has weird ideas about modern women’s fashion. I think some men get intimidated by anything really stylish because they don’t understand it. But trust me, once those girls are all dolled up, no one will be thinking “caveman”.
Your batting a thousand in the poll so far!!

I picked the first dresses, they are very pretty! And like PP, the second looks like a bathroom, not a fan at all.

*phew* oh thank you SOOO much girls!!! That makes me feel 10000x better! I’ve been asking friends and family, but was a little worried that no one would flat out admit to me that I made a mistake haha 😉
But now with such an overwelming concensus I can let the issue rest. Thank you!!! 🙂
