    I love the first dress.  Why can’t your bridesmaid order the dress in an 18? I know that Ann Taylor doesn’t carry 18s in their stores, but I was told that they do carry them online.

    ETA:  My second favorite is the silver pocket dress.

    Love love love the silver pocket dress. Very pretty.

    The first one looks too shiny and I don’t really like that blue color in the 2nd.

    My second choice would be the Thyme color, but it’s not as flattering I don’t think on differenct skin tones.

    @KimmySumShuga:  Oh. Yes, in that case I absolutely would NOT EVEN CONSIDER ordering the first dress. WAY, WAY too risky.

    I don’t really have suggestions about “jazzing up” the silver pocket dress (I also like it in “thyme” too!), except by, obviously, having your girls wear some kind of killer, sparkling, long, dangle earrings and bracelet and gorgeous shoes. I would not have them wear a necklace with that dress because I think it would compete with the design at the waist. I also would not attempt to add any type of belt over those folds/ruffles, which I think are pretty. Keep in mind that your maids will be carrying beautiful bouquets (I assume), so they already will look stunning next to you. 

    You will be the main attraction in that stunning PoB gown. Your groom and the groomsmen will look incredibly dapper in those suits your Fiance selected. The yacht will be gorgeous. Your maids need to coordinate with everything and look beautiful. However, they do not really need to make a bold statement.

    ETA:  If you did want a little extra bling for the maids, you could intersperse some clear crystals in their white bouquets. (I’m presuming white, based on your inspiration pic, above.)

    Thanks for the link! I’m not gonna chance it with everything being final and being unsure of sizes though 🙁 but it is a gorgeous dress. Also, I LOVE that rope belt you posted! That is so cute. I think you are right about not doing navy, it will just be WAY TOO MUCH. I also don’t think that silver is your best bet at all, I much prever the taupe color or the lighter blue, it really seems to go more with your theme. I think silver makes it look more icy and winter-themed.

    I enjoy the Thyme color, but I think it is a little too dark to go with your decor, I could be wrong though, becuase sometimes colors aren’t what they seem on line. Now, that being said… is there any room in your ideas for something like the inside vest color on the guys suits? I think that may be a nice color combination, but I would have to see that to know for sure, just wanted to throw that out there!
