Which dress decision came quickest to you? Were the bridesmaids dresses a quick and easy decision? Were you sold on sequins or fully decided on rocking different dress styles? Or did you wait to find your wedding dress first, then take your time finding dresses for your bridal party that complement your look?

Which dress decision came first for you? Your wedding dress, or your bridesmaids dresses?

    I found my wedding dress first. But I had a general idea of what I wanted for bridesmaid dresses from the beginning.

    Maybe bridesmaids dresses? I already know the website, style, and color I want to ask them to wear, but we haven't even asked our bridal party yet. I do have a particular dress in mind for myself, but I haven't gone shopping yet. If when I go shopping and this dress ends up working out, then I guess I'll have chosen my dress first, since I've had my eyes on it for months.

    Bridesmaid dress. I’m only having one bridesmaid so it made it a quick & easy decision. The bridal dress was a MUCH more lengthly process.

    We did bridesmaids dresses first! We just went to look and found a dress that everyone loved so we jumped right in. I did theirs there are a lot of them and I wanted to make sure everyone was happy.

    Bridal gown first. Still don’t know what I’m going to do for bridesmaid dresses! I know I’m going to let them choose a style, but I don’t know from where yet.

    I had one wedding then bridesmaids dresses then I didn't like the first wedding dress so I got a different one then I went to get an after party dress and fell in love with a different dress that ended up being my wedding dress. I had the second wedding dress shortenedbad I worn it to my after party. My sister wants the first one if she ever gets married.

    Wedding dress first. I didn't pick bridesmaids dresses, just the color and length.

    Wedding dress. I wanted to do taupe bridesmaid dresses and knew some wedding gowns had different "whites" so I wanted to make sure they'd match my dress.
