    I'm gonna go against the grain and say it doesn't matter. My very first decision was on the BM dresses, and it all turned out just fine. As long as you have an idea in your head of the "vision" of your wedding, just go ahead. It doesnt really matter if you match your BMs or not.

    Janet, you know what is so funny is that your bm's dresses go along perfectly with your wedding dress.
    Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!

      I know...I am slightly obsessed with V-necks, can you tell? :)

        I'd have to go with the majority on this one and say definitely get YOUR dress first!! I had a "vision" of what my wedding dress was going to look like and I ended up getting something TOTALLY different. I know a couple of other brides that had the same experience. What I was orginally thinking for my BMs would have looked odd with the dress I actually got. Plus...the color you pick for your girls could totally clash with your dress. Oh and dont forget the fact that sometimes the color you think is sooo pretty can look just awful on one of your girls. I loved orange but when some of my BMs put it on we were all like NO WAY!! So...you can (and probably will need to be) flexible on their dresses but you can't compromise on your dress!! It would be awful if you put on a dress fell in love and then realized you couldn't get it because it wouldn't go with the BM dresses.
