Help - Lace BM's or no??

Hi ladies! I recently (Ok, late August) picked out my wedding dress. It's lace, and it's fabulous. (Pics in my bio if you're interested) ... I will have 3 BMs and one of them asked me how I felt about lace dresses for them, whether it would be too much, or if I liked the tying in the theme, or what. She used this as an example (it's one we found in a local shop):

I really do love the style of this dress... But do you think it's too much with my dress being lace as well? Should they be in another fabric? I'm completely clueless on which direction to go here. Wedding will be somewhat informal so I don't want to go overboard, and I do plan on having a very rustic/country chic feel with lace and burlap both being incorporated... So what do you think? Would lace BM dresses work? Or should we go with something else?

i think it would look great with your dress!! it all depends on what YOUR vision is! my BMs dresses mimicked mine, and i really like that about them. some people like complete opposites though.

oh it could absolutely work!...you also have the option of maybe having the BMs dresses just having a hint of lace to tie in, rather then the entire dress, if in the end, you feel it's too much...do you have photos of your dress you can post?


in the mean time here is some inspiration:

I really like that bridesmaid dress! It goes well with your dress.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm looking around to see if I can find something a little more affordable for them. I remember being a BM multiple times and hating expensive BM dresses... Though this style is definitely one I can see being worn again...
