Poll: Traditional Bridesmaids Gowns or No?

I got word about this new blog called Will You Be My Bridesmaid? and have been enjoying it thoroughly ever since.  The site traffics the many horrific encounters women have had over the years with hideous bridesmaids’ dresses.

Crew gowns. So, here’s my question: Are you having your bridesmaids wear a traditional bridesmaid gown?  If so, from where? If not, what did you ask them to wear?
