I like the first one much better. It’s also a more classic looking dress so it’s a little less likely to be something you look back on in 10 years and say “what was I thinking?”

The 2nd one looks like a vera wang dress from davids bridal. To be honest that dress will only look good on certain body types. I would personally stick to the cheaper one or let them try on the 2nd one and see how it looks on them

I like the first one too. It seems like something that would be more universally liked by the bridesmaids and would flatter different figures more. I also wouldn’t ask them to pay $60 more for a dress when we already agreed on a cheaper one.

First one for sure. I second @CoCoCourtney:

I would stick with the first one for two reasons:

1.It is a dress thay actually can wear again as opposed to #2 which has “bridesmaid 2012” stamped all over it.

2. It is less expensive.

Dress 1! It will look better on more girls. Dress number 2 might not be flattering on most

I’m going to agree with the other girls.  I think #1 is a better option.  I feel like #2 will look dated really quickly.

Agreed. Love the first one – it will flatter more body types and is cheaper. Weddings are expensive to be in. Your bridesmaids will thank you later when they can still wear the dress!

My Maid/Matron of Honor wore the first dress from DB.  She had the bow removed and loved the dress. I think it would be better than the 2nd dress!
