white BM dresses, is that Ok?
Posted: May 25, 2012 10:25 PM

Im really liking the white bridesmaid dress look. But my mom and some of my other friends have kind of freaked about it. They all keep reminding me that it is white. I know I am supposed to care about that, but I love this dress (It's the first one my sister(MOH) and I have agreed on.) My colors are black and white with green accents. We have a lot of green in the button bouquets I am making, so I want black and white dresses, and then I started hearing that bridesmaids can't wear white dresses (my dress is a diamond/neutral white--Not Bright white.) so the first major question, can you have bridesmaids in white? second, this dress is at least 3 shades brighter than my dress. Is it going to make my dress look dirty?
the dress I want

My bridesmaids are doing the same freak out except its over black dresses. the different shades of white may make your dress look dirty or dull in comparison. Is there a way to get a swatch of the bridesmaid dress fabric to compare to your dress? if so I would do that. I see no issue with white bridesmaid dresses just maybe do black or green sashes and shoes? So its not to much white? Or maybe think about black dresses? if your bridesmaids are buying their own dresses they will love you for choosing black because a black dress is more likely to be reworn and can be made to look less funeral-ish by adding white or green accents. plus the contrast of black dresses to your dress will make yours look whiter and stand out more.

Absolutely! White -- for brides -- doesn't hold quite the same significance it once did, so having the wedding party wear white is perfectly fine, and will create a beautiful backdrop for flowers and other accents. As far as the shade of white, I can only suggest that, if possible, you physically put your wedding dress with the BM dress (or a sample dress of the same color and fabric) to get an accurate visual of the contrast -- and take pictures to get an idea of how they'll look together for your wedding photos!

As for others freaking out over your choices -- just remember, it's your wedding and your vision -- if you love it, that's all that counts.

Dear, in my opionion, BM dress can not be more bright than the wedding dress, let alone 3 shades brighter. if you really want white BM dresses, you can choose cream-coloured or light pink, these color are close to white and not brighter than the wedding dress. and mini length BM dresses would also make you unique. just like this http://www.dailyshop.com/bridesmaid-dress-taffeta-strapless-tea-length-sash.html
Besides that, you do need to care about what your family and friends say , wedding is a big day in life, you may feel more happy when other feel happy. congrats about the wedding. :)
