 I don’t think you should have the bridesmaids wear lace. It would be sensory overload in your photos. Let you dress stand alone. It is the one time in your life you’ll be the star! That Pronovias gown is seriously stunning, by the way.

Your dress is breathtaking!!!


I’d go for simple black satin dresses for the bridesmaids for a simple elegant look and no lace overkill.

kygirl242 :  I agree 100% , that dress is a show stopper I think it would be too much to have your bridesmaids also in lace. Depending on the kind of wedding I would go with a nice chiffon type dress for them.

Your dress is utterly gorgeous, I love it.  I agree with the others that lace bridesmaid dresses would be too much lace.  I’d go for simple long black bridesmaid dresses in a flowy fabric (like chiffon) or satin if you want a more formal feel.  If you’re doing an outdoor ceremony or reception in the summer, chiffon would be more comfortable for them.  There can be other elements to the dress to make the bridesmaids stand out– dramatic neckline or back, jewel embellishments, etc.  But the simpler the dress, the more likely they’ll be able to rewear it for future occasions.

 OMG that dress is AH-MAZING! I got a pronovias dress too =) how much was it if you don’t mind? I’d stick to solid fabric. If you’re outdoors, it may be too heavy for July. Try different solid fabrics, or a flowy dress style that won’t overwhelm the BMs.

chiffon or silk would provide a more appealing contrast to your dress in photos

I wouldn’t do an all lace bridesmaid dress,  but I also wouldn’t do satin for a summer wedding. It’s too heavy and hot.

You could choose a dress with a bit of lace at the top or some illusion detailing.

Hi there! Quick question – what color did you get your dress? Not the tail, but the actual dress. Is it white/ivory or champagne/beige? I just got the same one in beige and Im highly regretting my decision 🙁 

ps: id make them wear black without lace – its your day, its ok to stand out.
