I’ve never felt comfortable in a bridesmaid gown…even the one that cost $425.  The brides always thought we looked great, though.  Send her a picture and let her decide.

@Lizziemom: did you try them on before purchasing? Why do they look worse now than before?

Or did you not try them on, just went with the dress she picked? If so, do the dresses look like the photos the bride had seen?

@Lizziemom: has the bride seen anyone in the dress?  maybe you could all take photos of yourself in the dress and email them to her…that way she can make the final decision.  If she likes then I’m sorry to say you will just have to suck it up.  But she may not realize how bad they look on each of you.

I disagree with the others.  You friend needs to know if the dress looks bad on you guys.  If you keep mum and she thinks the dresses are horrific in person, then you’re all stuck with it on the wedding day.  Her stomach will turn every time she looks through the wedding album.  Nobody wants that.

I would have each of you send the bride pictures of you in your dresses. If she hates them, THEN offer to get other dresses, but only if she hates them.

I think you should be honest with her. I would have hated if my girls didn’t like their dresses

Let’s see a picture of these.

I agrea, try it on for her and if she likes it just put a smile on and wear it. If she hates it then tell her your solution to this problem.

Show us the dress!

The bride may not like them.  She ordered it from a swatch so she may be disappointed as well.  I agree with the PP that said for you to try it on, take a pic, email the pic to the bride and let her make a final decision.  (Also post that pic for us!)

I agree with @Sweet Melissa: & @mshoagie: — email her pictures of you in the dresses and let her make the call.  I had my girls order a dress online that I thought was cute and I thought each of them could pull off (they had totally different body types).  My Maid/Matron of Honor called me from her bathroom laughing saying that she’d wear it if I wanted her to, but she thought it looked pretty bad.  The reaction was pretty much the same from my other bm.  I believed them, but wanted to see for myself so had them both try them on for me and in the end I agreed- they were horrible!  We had the dresses sent back and went on a shopping trip together to find something better.
