I am thinking about having my maids rent a dress to save some money. I have found a few I like, but don’t know which one is the better. I’m only having 3 maids, and one is my sister.
My colors are Mint and Gold since I am getting married in December. I’m thinking of having the girls in mint and then having the moms in the gold color.
I like the back on this one a lot: http://rentthedress.com/product_info.php?cPath=8&products_id=139 But, is it too much? Will it take away from me?
I like how simple and classic this dress is: http://rentthedress.com/product_info.php?cPath=8&products_id=164
This on is nice because it has straps: http://rentthedress.com/product_info.php?cPath=8&products_id=175
I’m new to the boards here. I’ve been reading for a while, but this is my first post so thanks for your help!

I like the second one best. The first one is pretty, but not all body shapes can pull it off. The second one just seems more universally flattering.

I agree it def depends on your bridesmaid body shapes. Dress 2 and 3 would be much more forgiving than dress 1. i would reccamend going to a shop to try on dresses even if you dont plan on buying, that way you can see what looks good on your girls.

I like 2! It would probably look goob on everyone, 3 is good too if you happen to have busty bridesmaids also.

While I actually prefer strapless, dress 3 flows very nicely and has a good shape that will fit multiple body types.

In all honesty, I think the first one has too much going on. Did you get advice from your bridesmaids to see their thoughts? Afterall, this will be their dress. You want them to feel comfortable and be able to wear it again. I like the second & third one the best. Either way I think you can’t go wrong. Ask your Bridesmaid or Best Man if they mind straps or strapless.

I asked them and they like the strapless ones best too! I have one girl who has a larger bust though, so what I am thinking is I will put her in the one with straps and the other two in the strapless one. They are the same color so it should look nice.
Thanks so much! Love these boards.
