So we finally found a dress!
I think the girls look great in the dress. They both have amazing figures, and this dress really shows it off. I’m just worried that maybe it’s too tight/sexy for a wedding party look. It’s very form-fitting (some spandex in the fabric) and ends just above the knee.
The ceremony is outside in the garden of an old heritage house (hoping for a natural but quirky and kind of semi-formal vibe), and the reception is in a nice Chinese restaurant (very modern decor and decorations). So there’s two different moods that the dress would need to represent.
Likely bridesmaid dress: (obviously not a picture of either of my actual bridesmaids)
I’m really really really wanting to be done with dress shopping, but am having second thoughts about the selection (They liked it… I’m pretty sure. Hopefully they weren’t just playing along to appease me).
So what do you think – too tight?

If I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man I would be worried about it but that’s because I’m a little over weight. How are your girls? If they are super skinny, they might have a similar concern.

Totally depends on your girls’ figures!

If both you and the girls are comfortable with this look, then I say they should wear it.

That dress is cute! Where did you find it?
I think it would be best to ask you girls their opinion since they will be wearing it.

I dont think its too tight/casual for agarden wedding. If the girls love it and feel good in it, I’s say let them go with it!

The dress is beautiful, I really like it. But I might feel self conscious in a dress like that. It depends on your BM’s I guess, if they’re comfy in it, then its a good choice.

I LOVE that dress, and I would totally wear it. If I felt self-conscious, I’d throw on a shaper.
I hate websites where the model stands with her arms crossed or with a purse in front of the dress. I want to see the WHOLE thing!

That dress is GORGEOUS. I don’t think it’s too tight and I think it will translate well for both of your venues.
Can you tell us where it’s from??

I’d wear it, too! I don’t think it’s too tight unless some of your maids have body issues….I have a friend that I KNOW for sure would never wear this.

Definitely not too tight and it is beautiful. As the other pp mentioned, you have to make sure your BMs are Ok with a form fitting dress.

I would LOVE to be a bridesmaid in your wedding! What a great dress!
It’s a form-fitting dress, yes, but if your bridesmaids are comfortable in it, I say go for it. The floral shoulder makes it fit with your garden theme, and the fit, one-shoulder cut makes it fit with the modern theme.
