    I don’t think bridesmaid dresses are restricted to certain wedding dress styles. I’d find a couple brands that have the colors you want, and then find styles you like.

    I would do a color that ties into the colors of your wedding. Our colors are purple black and silver so the girls dresses are a dusty plum color. Thats the beauty of white/cream wedding dresses…anything matches! : )

    Somebody told me that when choosing bridemaid dresses you had to make sure they went with your dress. I found that to be strange advice. I don’t want them to look like me at all. But I do want their dresses to be nice and pretty! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Those dresses look good together I think.

    @kperry3: I think the only thing you need to take into consideration when “matching” your dresses is the formality of the bridesmaid dresses in comparison to your dress. For instance, I’m wearing a pretty casual gown, so it would have looked kind of weird for my girls to have formal, floor-length bridesmaid gowns, just like really casual sundresses might look out of place with an ornate dress at a very formal affair. I think you’re fine! ๐Ÿ™‚

    By The Way, I forgot to add this in there, but both your gown and the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are gorgeous! ๐Ÿ™‚

    When I chose my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses I had 3 styles I loved. My gown is romantic and lacy so I felt the very modern chic Bridesmaid or Best Man dress was pretty by looked off next to my gown. I ended up choosing something more romantic and flowy for the BMs also. Just my own opinion. Your gowns go great together btw. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes I think they go together well…I typically look at the neckline the most to see if something goes well.

    I think these days it really doesn’t even matter what you choose, as long as you love yours and your BM’s love theirs. My wedding gown is pretty formal with a train, but my BM’s dresses are short. They were sooo thankful I didn’t ask them to wear long, ‘typical’ dresses. They love their dresses and I love mine. So long as your colours go together and everyone feels beautiful, that’s all that matters.

    I’d pick three completely different style of dresses and then ask the maid of honor to pick the style that would work best for the figures of all the maids.

    You want your friends to love the dress and love you. Find something that works for their body (note this is a very different priority than if your friends match with the napkins on the table) and for their budget.
