Which bridesmaid dress?

Recommended Posts

As always, I can't make a decision without getting 3,000 opinions first! I am deciding between 2 dresses for my girls. My color theme is aqua and chartreuse.

The Davids dress is about $100 less than the other. This may sway me in that direction...

(it wouldn't let me copy the pic so here is the link, it would be in the blue color)

David's Bridal - Short strapless floral flat taffeta dress with ruching and in seam pockets.

and here is the other...

Jasmine Bridal

this one would be in the Bahama Breeze color

They are both soooo cute! I want that flower one for me! I need to start sewing again ... it's been years! So the second one if $235? They are both really cute ... sorry I'm not more help.

 

P.S. When you can't copy the pic ... you can do a Fn + PrtSc and do a print screen and paste it into "Paint" and make an image that way. wink.gif

i think it will depend on how formal you want your wedding to be, what YOUR dress looks like, etc.

 

the davids one is adorable but looks much less formal to me than the beautiful, flowy gown from jasmine. price would definitely be the deciding factor for me ... i wouldn't want my bridesmaids to have to cough up that much money (jasmine) for a dress they likely won't wear again, when they are paying that much to come to the wedding. i could see them possibly wearing the davids one again.

 

that said, i offered to let my girls buy off-the-rack, short dresses that weren't bridesmaidy, but they decided amongst themselves that they'd rather have the full-length dresses. worked out well for me since dreams cancun is so windy! i didn't have to buy them matching panties, lol!

I actually really like the second one. I think it has a great beachy flow to it. But would you get the floor length or the tea length. Also, what does your dress look like? These dresses seem to be a little different in style, so knowing what your dress looks like I'd say it'd be easier to compare them and tell you what would look best.

i like the jasmine one, long length. BUT the davids one is cute too, and it says taffeta so you know it will look more formal than a regular sundress, so that helps.

 

i just think the solid color of the bahama breeze would photograph better than the floral patten. since the floral is so bold and bright, it might take away from the details on your own dress. patterns are ok if they are softer, more muted, earthy colors.

I like the first one better BUT ive seen it in person and its actually not as cute in person than online...the material is a bit weird BUT i like the style better and seems more beachy. But like the other girls said it does depend how formal you are planning the wedding to be :)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
