@LoveLaceandWine:  My mom had only 2 bridesmaids and they wore different dresses in similar color.  One was more of a wine red color, the other was a champagne pink color.  For early 80’s they were ahead of their time lol.  I think it worked really well.  I say go for it.

Go for it. I actually had 3 bridesmaids and none of them wore the same color or style of dress. I loved the way they looked.

@LoveLaceandWine:  Two similar colors would be fine IMO, as long as they don’t clash. I wouldn’t do hot pink and canary yellow, but similar colors would be nice, even with only 2 BMs.

I think the two colors you have chosen would work nicely together, as they are still cohesive.  Anything more disparate and I think it would look awkward.  You want them to look like part of the bridal party, not just guests at the wedding, kwim??  


I wondered if I could pull this off too, but went with matching colors (matching everything actually) as I felt for my wedding that it looked better.
