well, i’m more of a linebacker kind of girl. and it’s just In My Humble Opinion, that even tho i LOVE all these dresses lol, i think i personally would only be able to pull off the 3rd one(ivory-ish and pink)…

NOW, lace can get hot. and it can irritate under the arms. something you COULD do, tho-

use any of the pattern colors you choose, but use the same materials. when you interchange the fabrics too much, i think it just kind of blends in. now, i think that white dress, alternated with the last (mauve) dress, would work super well…because those 2 fabrics are really close, BUT you have several different FITS here. and that could work for everyone…if you have a dainty maid, she could pull off the first one, a modest one could pull off the other styles, and larger one like myself could pull off the pink/ivory or mauve one…but see, i’ve also had a baby, and the corset styles really don’t pull me in like you would think they should. in fact, it makes my baby pooch even more detailed!  i think those 2 would be best as far as floor length…and you have the opportunity(if  you stick with the pinks), to play ALOT as far as flowers go…


hope this helps some πŸ™‚

i think they’re all awesome options for you ladies…and also, what do they think?!!

Wow, I love those floral prints! So pretty.. and I think the different colors and styles would complement each other perfectly. Such a great idea!

All of these dresses are beautiful! However, I know that I would be uncomfortable in all of the styles. I’m a size 12 or so- not fat but not skinny by any means. Maybe all your BMs are pretty thin though, so it might not matter, but it’s something to consider.

I think that the floral patterns, even in different colors, would look fine together, since they’re all the same theme. My BMs are all wearing different styles by the same designer, and not all the same material. If your wedding mixes the colors of each dress I think it would flow just fine πŸ™‚ It’s your wedding, if you like the floral print go for it!

I’d stick with a MAIN color throughout, whether some are floral or not means you can space the girls out. So you could do pink or purple as the theme and do one or two floral and one or two solid (depending on yoru number). Just be causious about your flower choice.

I’m doing all different dresses (I asked them to find something in mustard yellow) so I’m making all the flowers white (to avoid any clashing). 

I have three that are doing one color on top and yellow on the bottom and two that are totally solid in yellow. The three with the yellow on the bottom have a slight design. Anyways, sorry not about me, just letting you know that it’s totally do-able and though the process can feel stressful I asked the girls to find dresses and let me know/send me a photo. That way they feel invovled and like they have more freedom. Just some thoughts! I think your choices look awesome btw! Where is that blue dress with the lace from?? haha I want that for myself!!

@Mschocoholic: Don’t get me wrong, the dresses are all very pretty πŸ™‚ And some curvy women might be comfortable in them, I just know I wouldn’t- V-neck just doesn’t work for me. I think having the girls try them on is really the best way to know. The 3rd dress, the pink floral v-neck, is a good style though I personally would not look too classy with that neckline πŸ˜‰ I think I could pull off the blue lacy one too. It just depends on comfort level, I suppose.

I’d suggest having them made, and picking floral fabrics that would go together. I don’t think it’s impossible to find a set of floral dresses that would go together. I think you could definitely do it. But it will be really difficult to find many dresses that 1)fit your theme 2)fit the feel you want 3)will make girls of many sizes comfortable 4)that match well together.

Here is a link to a woman who makes vintage style tea dresses from lots of different floral fabrics.
