Need advice on sister holiday dresses.

I'm trying to find dresses for my girls to wear.  They would wear them for Christmas.  But I also wanted to use them for my girls to wear to Isabelle's baby blessing (it's similar to a baby Christening).  Then I'm also doing sister pictures that I will send out on or with Isabelle's birth announcements.

The problem I'm having is deciding whether I should have the dresses match exactly or be different but still look good together.  An example are these dresses I found on ebay.  My first option would be to have each girl wear a different dress like these (but these aren't the only choices):

My second option is to have them all wear the same dress, but right now the pink one in the middle is the only one in all 3 of their sizes that I can find.  Oh and Isabelle will be wearing a white dress that I've used for all the girls for their baby blessings.  What do you think?

With my DD's I used to get them the same dress so they would match.  Now that they are older they do not want to match...fair enough.  So I try to match a color in both of their dresses.  I think using the pink as the matching color in their dresses is a good idea.  That way they each have their own dress, but they all match in a way.  How do they feel about matching?  Do they like to match each other for the holidays?  If they do not mind then I say go for the same dress, especially if you can find it in all 3 of their sizes.  That doesn't happen often and it's hard especially when you find one you really like too.

one of the few things I love about have girls is making them wear the exact same thing

Maybe I'm silly but I like dressing all the kids the same.  So if I had 4 girls, I would do 4 of the same dress....LOL...I just love that!

I like the black and pink one!

I actually love blue the most, but am not finding anything I love.  There's this store in our mall here that sells nothing but little girl dresses in sizes newborn to like 12 years old, so you can have little girls all matching for weddings and holidays and stuff.  But their dresses are like $20-$50 a piece and I've discovered the quality is crappy.  If anyone remembers my girls' Easter pictures with the white dresses with the pink bodices with the flowers all over them.  Anyways, there's a pic in my bio.  But the girls only got to wear them 2x and they were already falling apart because of the way the toil fabric is sewn to the regular fabric is horrible, they just barely step or pull on their dress and it rips.  But they have these gorgeous blue dresses there that I love, I've been trying to find something similar to them to use but haven't had any luck.  I've already done pink a few times and am getting sick of it.  I was also looking at these ones on ebay that are cream and burgundy that people have listed a lot of them were George brand, but the girls wouldn't have exact matching dresses just the same colors since that's all I can find.  I'm just worried to use cream with the white blessing dress Isabelle will be wearing in the pictures.

 Well my mom used to make me and my sister wear matching outfits (we were 18 months apart) and I hated it so I vowed that if I ever had 2 daughters I'd NEVER dress them alike like that....so I'd get them each their own separate dress that tie in nicely together.

I think they would be adorable in matching dresses. You probably won't get to do it much longer so why not?

I like the one in the middle the best , the one on the end second.

I have terrible luck with the George brand it always falls apart.

I think matching is so cute!  I match my boys sometimes and I love it!  Have you thought about having dresses made for them?  A friend of mine is making dd's Christmas outfit (we are doing a swap).

Okay, I'm going to say the opposite. I think that different but coordinating would look really cute with those dresses especially #1 and #2. I am a big fan of matching also but in this case I love how those dresses coordinate with each other and complement each other. Good luck those are pretty dresses either way.

I like using the different dresses, but I don't think the 3rd coordinates as well as the first two becasue no pink on that one.  they're all adorable!

I love the last dress, but I would want them to dress the same.   So, I would go with whatever dress came in all their sizes.

 i think matching is nice, while you can still get away with it! i like really festive dresses for Xmas, but not sure if that would work for your blessing stuff....
