Help me choose a BM dress!

Recommended Posts

SO I only have two BM's, my 12yr old sister and 26 yr old best friend. I really wanted to buy off the rack and not get an expensive dress that needs alterations that they will never wear again. I also need to find a style that would work for them both (my sister has no chest). I picked up two styles at the Macys one day sale yesterday, and I would like to get some opinions. My sister is out of state so I need to pick one and send it. My friend likes both options. My colors will be deternined by which dresses I find. Here are the choices so far....what do you think? Sorry the pics aren't so good, I took them of myself (excuse the mess, it was laundry day).

 

First, here is my dress...

I would use a bright lime/grassy green for my accent color with both (I think).

Hmm.. would #1 work better for your sis who doesn't have a chest yet? I like them both and if your BM does too, get the one your little sis would be more comfortable in :)

I agree with number one. I think it is more suitable for a 12 year old. And it is SUPER cute!

I think the bubble hem looks great on you. You should keep that to wear to your rehearsal dinner. Sorry to not make this easier.

 

I would consider the body shape of your BM that is 26. If she has hips at all do #2 for her. The bubble hem doesn't look good on women with hips. But with that said the bubble hem is also a very mature look and I am not sure a 12 year old could pull it off without looking like a balloon.

 

#2 is very conservative and pretty could be good for both.

 

Did you check out Nordstroms. They have a Maggy London line which is very affordable. Sale dresses are around $75 and full price $135-$165. YOu can get two different styles that fit both of their bodies, yet the same fabric.

 

I had a hard time chosing myself and I wish you luck. Again the bubble hem looks great on you.

I agree, I think you pull-off the bubble dress really well! I think the second dress would look great on your friend - it's a great cut. The bubble dress I think would look cute on your sister - I think it is appropriate for a 12 yr old! Good luck. By the way, I am using the same color for my bridesmaids!

Could your sis wear one and your friend wear the other? The first one would look great on a younger person, but I think the second one would look better for an older person. I guess i am no help...sorry! :)

That was my thought...have two different styles that fit their age and body type...

Thanks girls!

 

I think the pictures make the dresses look like they are closer in color than they actually are. I don't think I could get away with using both. I wish I could though!

 

Now I am not sure what do do!

can you take them shopping and let them try stuff on? That way you will have a better idea of what looks good.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
