I think this Bridesmaid or Best Man dress is so pretty and I love the colour but my mother thinks it’s too similar to my own and will make my dress look less special. Opinions, anyone? I’ve put them side by side for comparison.
I’m having two BMs and they are both taller than me by a good 10cm.
I’m getting married in autumn with a church ceremony and reception at a function centre near a lakeside park.

I think you have some very lucky bridesmaids! Their dress is gorgeous and side by side I do think the dress overshadows yours a bit but once you add the veil and everything else you will shine! All eyes will be on you for sure!

I really dislike this thing to make your bridesmaids plain or less beautiful than they could be for the sake of not “out shining” the bride. If you are scared this would happen then you probably didn’t pick the most amazing dress for you. That’s clearly not an issue in your case because Your dress is gorgeous and you look to die for, you will definitely stand out, the bridesmaids dresses are stunning and go so well with your gown, I think you should definitely get them. Make your girls as amazing looking as you can, the photos of the day will be a knockout when you all look splendid.

I picked this dress bc I really liked it, no intention whatsoever of putting down my BMs- after all I did ask them because they’re special to me!
Here’s a contender for comparison- love this colour too but it’s much plainer.. If I buy this for them I think we will deck out with rose gold jewellery :):):):)

I prefer the sweetheart ones you posted second. They are very lovely – and don’t add any busy-ness.

As far as I know it is tradition that the bridesmaids look similar to the bride. So that the bad bspirits are confused and don’t know whom to get (I think :D).
That said I think no bridesmaid can ever outshine the bride and a beautiful bridesmaid only adds to the beauty of the bride. Go with the dresses you love!!

I really like the first one. That cos I have a big boob issue with strapless so I think the first allows for better underwear options. However that’s just me and you know your girls best.
Both are totally gorgeous dresses. Are you having a veil? As
said, once you are all bridal you’re going stand out a mile.

I actually prefer the second dresses with the rose gold jewellery. But to answer your question, no I don’t think the first dresses are too similar or will outshine you. I do think all the lace is a wee bit busy, but that’s just my 2 cents.

I don’t think you can go wrong with either! I don’t think the first ones outshine your dress at all!

I love both. Nothing will make your BMs outshine you, but you do want them to look beautiful!

YOU. ARE. GETTING. MARRIED! You are happy and in love, you will be the most beautiful woman there because of that.

I think go with the first ones! They are similar in some ways to yours, but different enough to not be too similar! And they tie in beautifully! I like them much more than the second contender dress – that style is more common than the dresses you are thinking of as first preference, and I think they will look knockout! Also, your dress is DIVINE – you will be a beautiful bride, and both you and your girls will shine xxx

I prefer the first Bridesmaid or Best Man dress option and don’t think they make your dress look plain at all.
