Which bridesmaid dress is better?

Hi Girls,
I’ve been looking at BM dresses, i love these 2 dresses, and BM cant decide which one either!!
Would love your opinions...
Ps.. i will have light ivory dresses and mother will have a hot pink.
Ohhh, and it’s a summer wedding!!!

    I voted for the second one, but if you are able to have your BMs try them both on to see which they/you like best on that would help :) Or read reviews on both dresses too

    I think the first BM dress has more of a summer feel. I'm not sure if you are having a very formal wedding, if it will be outside, etc. The second dress seems to be more formal and the navy blue seems to be more for a fall or winter wedding. But, I'm  sure any dress you choose for your BMs will be fabulous! Good luck!

    I agree the 2nd one seems more formal.  I do like it better, though. Of course, it might be less formal looking in a different color.

    Can you BMs help you decide?  After all, they're the ones who have to buy it wear it all day long.

    Do your BMs prefer short or long? You should ask them.

    Personally, I hate wearing long dresses to weddings and like the second one, but I don't have to buy it!

    I second this.  Although, I prefer long dresses :)  See, matter of personal preference.  Also, is your dress long or short?  Personally, I like BM dresses to match the length andformality of the bride's dress (to an extent).

    I love them both but for the sake of your BMs, I think the second is a better choice because you are more likely to wear a short dress again.

    But other things to consider:
    1) formality of occasion
    2) do BMs like to dance? 
    3) which goes better with the setting for your pictures?

    I love the second dress but the first dress will be really flattering on various body types.

    sorry, I thought I replied to a specific post :S

    Ask your maids - but I like knee length over floor length always - the short one is just more fun :)
