    If you’re looking for casual, cool, and cute – they would work!  The only thing I’d be concerned about would be the fact that the material clings to your body and shows cellulite easily (hopefully, you don’t have thicker BM’s).

    For the wedding you descibed I think those dresses are just fine. &  if I were a Bridesmaid or Best Man I would be happy cuz I could wear it again.

    I think they are too casual for Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. Maybe for a guest but not Bridesmaid or Best Man.

    Depends on how formal your wedding is. If it would be acceptable for me to show up in a sundress and my Fiance to come in nice shorts and a collared shirt, then I’d say it’s right on par. If I needed to wear a nice dress and Fiance had to wear slacks and a tie, it would be too informal.

    Because you said:

    I’m thinking of a beach dressy or semi-formal dress code

    Then yes, these are too casual.

    I think the style is very charming however, they look a little t-shirty-y.  Maybe if they were in a satin or other shiney material it would dress them up a bit.

    Love them, perfect for a tropical wedding. I would pick pink over grey but that is personal opinion. I wore a similar (jersey) dress as a Bridesmaid or Best Man in a tropical wedding. The bride wore a formal satin gown and the groom and Groomsmen wore white button downs (Long sleeve) and chinos. Everyone wore flip flops. I also don’t think the dress you chose is too clingy.

    I think if they dressed it up with gold accessories, maybe a thick wait belt in a bright colour, it’d be perfect :).

    I feel like it might be appropriate for a guest at the wedding but a tad too casual for the bridal Party. Those don’t look beach dressy or semi-formal. The picture with the cardigan looks a little more formal but your girls won’t be wearing cardigans in Bali. I would say, keep looking, because you can find so many comfortable and breathable beach Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. Even so many bees have found that! I would say even search through the threads and see where some other bees have found their beach brIdal party dresses. 

    P.S. sorry for any typos, I’m on my phone.

    I don’t think its too casual…once they get their hair and make-up…nice jewelry and flowers it could look cute! Plus its nice that they can wear it again after the wedding!

    I agree with Aoexgall22! You can definitrly dress this up w/ all the other accessories. What shoes will BM’s wear? I love that they can wear this again!!

    I feel like with the wind on the beach those jersey dresses may be blown against their legs and look unattractive…
