    Ok, so originally there was going to be 3 BM, but now there will only be 2. I was going to do 3 bright different colors for their dresses. Now, with only 2 girls, do you think I should order the same color dress (either a bright watermelon color, or cornflower blue) OR should they be different colors still? Here's the dress: David's Bridal - Bridesmaid F12899 Sleeveless chiffon short dress with satin beaded straps. Thank you ladies!

      I think either would look good, but I am the type of person that everything has to match, so I would go with only 1 color. You may not be ocd like me, so If you want to mix in both colors I still think it would look great!

        I think that I would have them wear the same color. But that is just my opinion.

          Cute dress! I would probably go for the same color or complementary colors (turquoise and aqua or fushia and orange, etc) I think there might be too much contrast with two different colors. If that is the case, why not have the BMs pick their own color?

          Will the guys all be dressed alike? If so, I think they need to match.

            If it's the same dress, I think I would do the same color. I'm not a big matchy person and I think the BM dresses that are all different yet the same color are cool. But with the same dress, I think I'm leaning to same color- especially since there are just two.

            I dunno- whatever you decide though. Ultimately it's your vision. :)

              I would go with the same color. Have your bridesmaids tried the dresses on yet? I had my BM try on that dress and it looked horrible on her. It is such a cute dress though!!!

                Actually, part two of this whole thing is this: I read the reviews on the dress and a lot of people said that if you don't have big boobs then the straps fall down. The girls are going to try them on tonight and who knows, we may change dresses completely. We'll see how it goes tonight. Thanks everyone for your input!!!!!

                    LOL it was the opposite for me. My BM has huge boobs and she was hanging out of it. And she is not big at all but it made her look like she had no shape. It is such a cute dress though. That was one of the dresses I had picked out!!

                      Very cute dress! As the others said, I would go with same color dresses. An idea for you if you want both colors on the girls would be to incorporate jewlery or even shoes in the color not used for the dress. I do know of a couple in which the girls all had the same style dress but different colors and it looked great, but there were quite a few more BM's...rainbow styled I believe.
