    My sister -- aka maid of honor and fashionasta -- has been fabulous and has run around NYC trying on bridesmaid dresses this week. After reporting that almost everything looked "horrendous" and deciding that the wedding world was just flat out evil to BMs, she found two fabulous but decidely different options for BM dresses. I have 6 bridesmaids altogether but one is my 13 year old neice (who I just can't call a "junior" bridesmaid for fear of offending her for life). The rest of the girls are being amazing and while they've given me their opinions they've all said they are totally happy with whatever I choice...of course, their opinions all vary so it comes down to me and i just don't know!!!

    I'm letting them choice their style either way, so the choices are between the Coren Moore or the Melissa Sweet dresses (so either one of the two Coren Moore dresses or one of the three Melissa Sweet dresses all in matching color/fabrics).

    The things is that Coren Moore dresses are classic - very cute, sweet - would totally work and be gorgeous. But they are a little more formal. The Melissa Sweet dresses, according to my sister, look totally different on, and the chiffon is very pretty and flowy -- perfect for the beach. It's harder to envision it because the photos show them in all different colors (and one dress is even shown in two-tone when she tried it one as all one color).

    Option #1 is Coren Moore dresses (all in the yellow color shown first). The girls would be able to pick which of these two cuts they wanted, and all the dresses would come in Lemon tissue taffeta. I've added the link to the website cause the photos aren't very good.

    This dress would be worn w/o the sash (and the back of it is fabulous)

    And this is the two-toned one I referred to -- my sister tried it on as all one color and said it looked fabulous.

    So what are the thoughts and opinions because I'm really torn and would love to hear pros/cons either way? My wedding party rocks but they are being very p.c. about sharing their feelings!

        I really like the Melissa Sweet dresses. The fabric looks great for the beach and the styles look like they would be good for different body types.

          They are all pretty but i do prefer the blue one,you are right the back of the red one is fab.I think the cut of these will work with all body shapes.Its a tuff one.Which do you favor.If someone was giving them to you and you had only 2 seconds to decide,OR you could not have them which one would you go for. REMEMBER ONLY 2 SECONDS.WHICH ONE POPPED INTO YOUR HEAD?

            I prefer the blue one for a BM...but the first picture, the cute little cream/ivory dress - i'd totally wear that in the evening if i was going to do a wardrobe change..or maybe for the rehearsal dinner...BOOKMARKED!!! :)

                  I like the first dress. It looks classic and the cut is very clean and simple, leaving you the star of the show. I also think the girls could wear this dress after the wedding. It looks like a nice beach dress that they could go out to a nice dinner in as well, more bang for their buck.
                  Live every day like the next will never come.

                    I vote for the Melissa Sweet dresses! They are beautiful styles and are really well made.

                      I like the Melissa Sweet one as well. The two toned dress is really cute as well.
