Hello fellow BDW brides,

 

I found two dresses from Dressbarn that I think both of my BM looks fabulous in, but I need help with picking one for the wedding.

 

I have picked my wedding colours to be 1920s Great Gatsby inspired theme:

My bouquet will look like this:

My ceremony will be at the beach. My fiance along with 2 other groomsmen will wear black suits. We have not decided on ties yet.

 

Here are the dresses:

 

Dress #1: Short dress

 

Pros: It is a short dress (good for walking around the beach), champagne colour, I love the lace top and then the chiffon layers at the bottom

 

Cons: They sold out of the size 8s, so I have to alter the dress for one of my BMs, both BMs and my fiance likes dress #2 more, I'm afraid the color of the dress will blend in with the sand colour in the background.

I'm afraid the champagne colour is so light that it will be washed out in pictures like this:

Dress #2: Long dress (the flash is making the dress looks silver, but it is actually taupe color)

 

Pros: No need to alter either of the dresses (except for hemming the length) since we were able to buy the correct size, both BMs and my fiance likes this dress more, They will not blend-in with the sand in the background, this dress is cheaper than Dress #1

 

Cons: I have in my mind that BMs looks better in short dresses (looks cuter), Not sure if the taupe colour quite match with my bouquet and my theme, Will my BMs looks shorter with the long dress?

PLEASE HELP! I'm going insane soon.

I voted for the first one! I think it would look great on the beach! Great theme as well!

I think they will both look great.  If it's windy, or there's a light breeze, I think the long dress will look amazing.  Your BMs might appreciate it more too if it's cheaper.  And they both like it more!

They are both gorgeous dresses... I think the long one's would work really well for the beach though, seen a few people say they will blow in the wind... very dramatic and beautiful!!

I voted for the long one too. But that's just what I'm partial too. I love long dresses for weddings, whether on the beach or not. I agree that you may have an issue with colour. The best thing to do is talk to your photographer is you have one. Let them help you with what will work and what won't. There was an article on here at one point about colours that was contributed by a photographer. Maybe dig around the site and see if you find it.


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

I think the first is more flattering in the chest area
