    I actually like the purple one better, but I think it looks too closely like your dress with the ornate shoulders and cinched waist. So I for voted for blue

    I voted blue for the same reason as hailey.

    I voted purple because the sleeves look very restricting in the blue

    The blue looks more MOB-ish to me; the purple looks more youthful.

    misslucy :  said, kinda MOBish (not that they have to be frumpy, but you know what I mean!) so even though I really like the skirt, I think the purple is better overall.  And I don’t think it matters that the style is similar to your own.  If nothing else, the V in front is wildly different.  I doubt anyone will be confused or whisper about it – that would be silly.

    Oh they’re both gorgeous! But I feel like the purple one goes perfectly with your dress (of course they’re not too similar! They’re clearly different. But it’s cool that a few elements match like the flowy skirt and shoulder beading). Your dress is quite boho/romantic and the blue dress to me sort of looks more black tie. Also if your BMs aren’t as tall and skinny as the models I think the purple could be more accomodating to different body shapes – my girls wore a dress with a very similar structure and it managed to flatter all three of them. It looks comfy too.

    Based purely on looks, I like the blue dress better. However, if I were a Bridesmaid or Best Man I think I would prefer the purple dress as it looks slightly more forgiving in the stomach area.

    Purple. The scoopier neckline is more flattering than blue’s super high neckline. Can make girls look frumpy on top if they’re bigger than a twig, but I also think those of us with smaller chests look childish with high, t-shirt style necklines.
