Deciding on bridesmaids' dresses (poll)

Recommended Posts

I think we've narrowed down the bridesmaids dresses to two. I posted them on my blog already, but then decided I would get more feedback here, plus I could do a poll, which sounded like fun!

 

Here's the first one:

and the second one:

They will be in this chocolate brown colour. I kind of like the first one better, but I think both my bridesmaids' prefer the second one. Of course, they won't come out and say it because they're both being great bridesmaids and want to leave it up to me! To be honest, I think the two dresses are so similar, that I'm thinking about just telling them to each choose whichever one they prefer. If they want to choose the same one or each pick different ones, I don't think I really care too much.

 

What do you guys think, the first one, the second one, or let the bridesmaids choose whichever one each of them likes?

I personally really like the 1st one!

 

But if you are willing to be flexible I think it would be nice to let them choose. They are both pretty similar and very cute... so letting the girls choose which one they would be most comfortable in would be nice.

I voted for the 2nd one, but only b/c i think that neckline is more flattering on most people and I don't know what your BMs look like/shaped like. But both are really elegant looks!

the 2nd looks like a j crew BM dress I've seen. My friend has it & she was really uncomfortable with the deep v neckline. She's pretty modest. Another reason why letting them pick is a great idea.

I had my bridesmaids try on all the styles of espresso dresses from JCrew in silk chiffon and espresso. Since they are different than your styles, I can't totally comment, but even though I had picked JCrew so that they can pick different styles, but they all ended up with the same style - Sophia silk chiffon - for their 4 different body types! The 2nd one you have there looks like the Sophia - is it the Janey? Either way, that style looks best on people. I do love the first style though :). Maybe you can let them wear either one?

they are both really cute! and I think it would look great if you had different kinds in the wedding. Let them choose and if they both wear the same, great and if different, thats great too.

They're both from J. Crew. The first one is the Cotton Cady Lydia and the second one is the Janey. I'm thinking about ordering the first one for myself in another colour too!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
