(I already posted this in the Beehive boards by accident – forgive me for the double posting!)
So I think I may have finally found “THE” dress – its the “Rachael” dress from Maggie Sotero. I didn’t think that I would initially get a big ballgown dress but I just fell in love with it when I tried it on!
Here is my dilemma – I already decided what my bridesmaids’ dresses would be before I decided on my dress. It is style #7116 from Alfred Angelo. (Including a picture of the dress with the model and with my sister) I loved these bridesmaid dresses because of the shade of pink (hard to find in other dresses) and they were also super comfortable yet still flattering on my bridesmaids. Now I am worried that my wedding dress may be too “over the top” and too fancy for what I picked for my bridesmaid dresses! What do y’all think? Do you think my dress would still work with the bridesmaid dresses? I really do not want to change the bridesmaid dresses if I don’t have to – in my heart, I feel like they will still work together but I’m still so confused!
Here is the 2nd dilemma: we also decided that the groom and the groomsmen will be wearing blue/white seersucker suits. Again, this was decided before I even started trying on wedding dresses. Now I’m not sure if my dress would “work” with the seersucker, and more importantly, whether my groom will be “fancy” enough next to me.
What do you all think??? Get new bridesmaid dresses? Try different suits? Also, does this dress even look good on me??? Maybe I’m freaking out over nothing!

My opinion: freaking out over nothing. 🙂 The dresses are cute, the color is perfect for summer, and you look great in your gown! I would check these two off your list and move forward!

Not at all. I love your gown and think it works well!

The dress looks great on you and you love it. I don’t see any problem. Besides it is your wedding, you are allowed to be more fancy!

I think you look lovely. I’m not sure what a “seersucker” suit is, but I’m sure it’s fine. Your dress isn’t THAT fancy, I was expecting head to toe sequins and a 30 foot long train!
You’re fine. And stunning. 🙂

i think you look amazing and the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses go wonderfully! i also dont know what a seersucker suit is, but have come across the wordt several times and it has even been suggested that my Fiance wear it for our beach wedding!….guess i will start a thread over in “grooms”!

I completely agree with the PPs…you look beautiful in your dress (your waist looks itty-bitty!!), the bridesmaids dresses are supercute, and you’ll look great next to your groom.
If you’re still really worried about being too formal, stick with a veil much like the one you have on in the picture (it looks perfect with your dress!) and understated jewelry.

I think they go well together, and they’re both very pretty! If you want to ‘fancy up’ the bridesmaids, maybe get them some statement jewelry that pops like the belt on your gown, and the Fiance can have a nicer pocket square and cuff links, etc, to make things look a bit more formal.

I love your dress! It gives you such a small waist and your bridesmaid’s are so cute. I want something similar for mine. I think your dress is prefect and will not look too fancy. Its your wedding and when everything is in place you’ll see that.

I love your dress and don’t think it’s too fancy at all.

Girl, you need to calm down and realize you have made awesome fashion choices! 😉 I was expecting some huge cupcake gown after reading your post. I think everything goes together well. LOVE your dress! 🙂
