    There are some pretty dress options there! Have you checked with your bridesmaids to see what they're comfortable wearing? You could let each of them pick out their favorite dress out of those options.

    I want to do all the same and I’m worried if I open it up to them then it may become more of a hassle!

    Maybe instead of showing them all options right away, you could open a discussion with them to find out what length of dress they'd feel most comfortable in, and generally what styles they like (strapless/low cut/slit/etc), and then go from there. Narrow it down to 1-3 styles that match what they like, and then show them those options. That way, they won't be overwhelmed with options, the ones you choose will be styles they said they liked, and it'd be easier to get the group to agree on one dress when there are fewer options.

    Yes I agree. I guess it’s hard because I’m not finding one I’m totally happy with! I’m not sure if there are other sites with this color 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Check out Birdy Grey or even Amazon! You might be able to find different options in that color on those sites.

    I like 2 and 19, but I agree, narrowing down what length you or your bridesmaids prefer, and then the neckline is the way to go.

    For example, the thing that is super important for me if I were wearing one of these dresses, is being able to wear a regular bra, ideally - and if I can't, then I'd prefer it not be strapless because if I'm going to be crouching helping shake out your train, or otherwise running around and assisting on the day, I don't want to have to worry about giving your guests an eyeful if the dress keeps shifting down. Or, if the dress has a super high leg split or a front opening wrap, and it's going to be a windy, outdoor venue... I learned from experience that it can be very hard to hold your dress down and a bouquet of flowers!

    But that's me, and your bridesmaids may have other concerns, so best to ask them first, and then narrow down the choices from there and present 2 or three. ORRRRR just let them go hogwild and pick whatever dress they like, within that colour, if you're ok with that - it certainly makes things easier!

    This is a lot of options! In your situation, I would decide on a length and then just tell your bridesmaids to pick whatever style they like in that color + length.

    I agree with others that narrowing down choices yourself first could be a good idea. I would first figure out if you want long or short, and then look at the neck lines. I think once you narrow it down to like 5 or so, then I would show them to my bridal party and see which ones they like. If they all like the same one, great. If not, would you be open to them wearing similar dresses with maybe slight variations (such as maybe some different necklines). Also, you mentioned the wedding being at a church, so make sure there aren't any modesty rules you have to follow, as it looks like the majority of those options are strapless or spaghetti straps. And if you have some women who are a bit on the busty side, many of these may not work very well for their body types.


    Also, I've lived in NJ my whole life and....I don't recall a time when it has ever been "cool" in June/July. I would definitely err on the side of it being at minimum 75 degrees, but more likely in the 80s. It may cool down a bit in the evening, especially if you're by the shore, but not by much.

    Do the try on at home feature and let them pick what they are each comfortable with.

    Love the flowy style with split. 13/15/16. I had a similar style for my bridesmaids last summer with an illusion neckline. The dresses also had pockets. Ordered from DHGate. I did take into account the women's build and comfort. Not everyone is comfortable with spaghetti straps or strapless. So illusion was a nice option and matched the illusion neckline of my gown. Good luck in your decison.

    Since you know what color you want (which is already a big decision) I'd say you you should just let bridesmaids pick the style. However you might want to narrow it down to the length: long, midi, etc

    I’m letting my bridesmaids decide what style they want because they are all different sizes and builds. As long as the color itself is the same I don’t really care about which style they choose.

    That's way too many options!

    i personally prefer the shorter 2 and 3 options though because i personally like shorter than longer. but again as people have mentioned, consulting your bridesmaids is the best idea

    Most of these look like lingerie...but I'd say 11 or 12.
