    Hi everyone!

    I have been going back and forth on the bridesmaid dresses, and I think I've got it to this choice - I think I just need more affirmation. What do you think of this dress? I love the print because it's different and seems reggae-ish somehow, all of my wedding colors are included in the dress, and there are pockets (pockets!), but I'm concerned that it might not be bridesmaid-sy enough. I've got a pretty formal dress.

    Also, the GMs are all in white/tan striped tunic shirts.

      I do think the dress is cute! I guess it depends on HOW formal YOUR dress is and how much you want that to flow within your wedding, kwim? These remind me of beachy dresses. Anything can be dressed up though, with the right acces., shoes, etc. I'd have to see it on...

      Have you look in David's Bridal? They have printed dresses there that are really cute for DW's.....

          Okay, I've posted my dress pics on my wedding website since I can't access anything else at work. It will only be up there temporarily, as I don't want the FI to see the pics.

            WOW i love your dress! it looks gr8 on you! now get them off before he sees! hahahahahaha

            ok- the bubble effect in the bm dress will look cute with your bubble effect too! personaly i feel like your dress is gorgeous and the bm dress, though its super cute, they aren't dressey like your dress. its all a personal choice though, what you want. if u love them, i say go for it. what do u'r maids think?

            i saw this one and it has the same colors you like, ?

              I think the bm dresses are adorable but after looking at your dress they don't seem as dressy. But i'm not the bride, so i say pick what makes you happy.

                Thanks for the feedback! I love my dress too!!! Swoon.....

                I do love that orange twist dress - gorgeous! I'm still waiting to hear back from my last BM, but the other 2 are split (but of course, have agreed to wear whatever I decide.) It'll be a tough decision, since I am trying to keep the whole affair casual and laid-back. (Aren't we all?)
                I was concerned at first about my dress being too formal, but the FMIL cried when I walked out of the room and my mother and I love it, so we're working with it. The FI will be wearing a tan linen suit with a white button-down linen shirt, no tie.
                Also, 2 of the BMs aren't exactly financially set, so I'm trying to keep dress costs for them down since they're already paying for the plane tix. Maybe some dressy accessories.....

                Have a great weekend ladies!

                  Yeah I love that orange one too. Say you go to a store (like Cache, where the orange dress is from) seriously talk to the manager and tell her its a bm dress, and see if they can give a certain % off as they all will be buying the dress there. It seriously works! Also if you find that you love a dress but its just too expensive, you can find something identical for cheaper somewhere else. The girls on this forum always find stuff! Good luck, keep us posted!
