I think they’re both GORGEOUS!!!  If I had to pick ONE, I would pick the black one.

LOVE the red one! the black one is fun too…but for some reason (maybe b/c it’s red) I’m just really drawn towards the first one you posted. It just screams fun and fabulous! Go for it!

I agree with mlkeysock, I’m totally drawn to the red.

I’m having my Future Sister-In-Law stand with me and that is all. We did a fancier full length dress that is black for her since she will be the only one!

You could totally do black…especially b/c your wedding is in October. You could use your flowers to throw in a splash of color! Black and white weddings are very classy!

Black can totally work if you like it! I’m only having my sister too and she didn’t want to wear black though b/c she felt a lot of guests will be wearing black.

Both are quite beautiful.  I would just want to make sure that your sister could walk in whichever one is chosen.  The black one looks a little tight at the ankles (from what I can tell in the picture), and the red could be a little restricting depending how far down on the leg it would hit her.  I love the mermaid style of dress though… a lot of it just depends on where it goes from fitted to flare. 

Good luck… and I think getting a stunning dress for your sister is an awesome way to go

Oh, and black is totally ok.  You’re doing a black tie affair… and black has lost a lot of its previous "taboo" status for weddings.  It’s formal, elegant, and classic.  It’ll be fine.

They are both FANTABULOUS!

Since my only Bridesmaid or Best Man is my sister as my Maid/Matron of Honor, I am also having her wear a non-Bridesmaid dress. It will look great not having her in the typical Bridesmaid or Best Man dress and lucky her she can pull it off a lot better than I can.

They’re both beautiful, but I especially like the red (mostly because sequins give me 80s flashbacks).  Another nice thing is, since you are just having your sister, she can pick something SHE wants to wear, instead of you having to pick something as a compromise  between three or four girls.
