My sister (MOH) & I went to try on dresses today for the BMs. We narrowed it down to three differents “sets” of dresses because I would like to have my 6 girls wear different dresses that match. I am going back with the group to try on all of the dresses and will decide then, but thought it would be fun to see what the Bee thinks.
This is my dress:
During the ceremony, I am wearing a boat-neck lace bolero.
My colors are grey and yellow – all of these dress options will be in grey and the bouquets are yellow. Shoes will probably be black. The groomsmen are wearing black slacks, ivory shirts, black vests, yellow ties and no jacket – sleeves will be rolled up. The feel of my wedding is formal with laid back/country vibes – attire for guests is cocktail.
Option 1 – Lace Dresses from David’s Bridal
Option # 2 Alfred Sung
Option #3 Lace Dresses from Jasmine (these would all be gray lace w/ a gray underlay – some of the pictures show the dresses w/ a contrasting underlay)
What’s your vote, bees?

I actually really like #2 but they may not be flattering for those that are bottom heavy. Next, I love the 3rd option.

@MsMonkey: They are all nice! I voted set 1 because I love the scalloped hem on both dresses, and I like lace because it picks up on the lace from your dress.

@MsMonkey: I like the jasmine lace the best. We almost got the Dupioni ones from Alfred Sung – the styles you showed – but they didn’t fit a couple of my girls very well.

Thanks!! I do like #2 a lot – a totally different feel from the lace dresses. I will have to see how my girls look in them… they’re actually all fairly similar in figure!
@AlmostMrsPeck: I am leaning toward the Jasmine lace! I do like how there’s a lot of options within that set.
@little_d: I do love the scalloped lace! super pretty!

@MsMonkey: I don’t know, if I were your Bridesmaid or Best Man, I’d want some options. Not everything fits everyone nicely!

@MsMonkey: I like option 3 the best, followed by option 1. I love the lace options. Option 2 is pretty, but I like the lace look and material more.

I like the strapless Alfred Sung. So classic.

I really disagree with the poll. I don’t think those Alfred sung dresses fit your laid-bad/country vibe at all. Considering your theme, I think lace is a much more appropriate fabric. Personally, I like #3 the best.

I don’t like the DB ones at all. It’s a tie between 2 & 3 but I wound up voting 2 because I love the crisp clean lines.

I love the Alfred Sung ones, but I am biased because I looked at those for my girls. However, I think the DB lace ones go better with your theme and are also gorgeous!

I just tried on all of those Alfred Sung dresses a few days ago and they looked terrible on me. The pleats were very unflattering on me. If your BMs have slightly larger hips (I’m a size 6 for comparison) those dresses may not be very flattering for them. Pretty sure they have must of those styles with non pleated skirts as well.
I love the Jasmine dresses!
