    Not to bow. Personally. But I’m not a bow gal. Also, the other dresses could maybe be used for something else in the future. The bow makes it a bridesmaid dress from a mile away.

    I think that the dresses go well together but I would leave the bow off.

    I love the last green dress! I want it for myself!

    Personally, I don’t like when Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are different lengths. I don’t think the bow is “tacky” but I would pick the dress without the bow if I were given these options.

    NO BOW! especially if your girls are larger than a size 2. Bows only look good on models and little girls Laughing


    I definelty like the second and third pic and think they look great together!

    I think that all 3 dresses would be fine…minus the bow.

    I really like the bow dress!  Maybe have your Maid/Matron of Honor wear one of the others and the other BM’s wear the bow dress?  I am not too fond of the different dress lengths.  If anything the bow dress and the green dress compliment one another.

    I’d love to wear the bow dress if I was your BM! I think it is really stylish and the least “bridesmaidy” dress. But all three would like fine together.

    I normally like bows, but this is too centered and symmetrical for me. I say nay to the bow

    I think that bows are a matter of taste. Since you seem to be going the mix and match route, I would let your Bridesmaid or Best Man give you input on the bow.

    @Cheesy Potatoes My size 24 bestie would disagree, she wears bows all the time and she can totally rock it even if she’s not tiny!

    @OP – What do your girls think?

    I actually like bows 🙂 I think you should let your girls decide considering they will be wearing the dresses.
