    I went to one wedding where the colors were orange and brown, and the bridesmaids wore orange and the maid of honor wore the same dress in brown.  the Flowers were different shades of orange with brown satin wrapped stems.

    I would go with brown.  I love when the bridesmaids flowers really pop off the backdrop of their dress.

    But really, no decision will be wrong because it is a pretty dress!

    when i first read your post i was like – definitely brown.

    but, if you look at the dress at the link – the orange is fantastic and it really makes the dress pop.

    i say go with orange!

    I surpised myself by liking the sunrise color a lot, I’m generally not a huge fan of orange. That being said I’m still leaning more toward brown because I don’t think you’d regret it later. My FMIL had orange 60s dresses and looks at them and says what was I thinking. So, I think it comes down to: What color will you be happy with in 30 years because both are lovely. Good luck

    I voted for brown, just because orange can be so hard to pull off for some people (like me!). The sunrise color is pretty though.

    My girls are in brown, but my other color is aqua 🙂  But also I would think that orange flowers would look nice off of a brown dress.  Brown is classier in my opinion.  I agree that you won’t regret the brown, but you never know with orange!

    I think brown dresses with orange flowers and shoes would be cute! That way the flowers stand out, and you could even do cute, bright copper/brown/orange jewelry with it!

    I do think the orange is stunning, but I just voted for brown because of the rewearability factor.

    I voted for orange, I feel like so many brides are choosing brown over the last couple of years, while it is gorgeus the orange is different and unique. LOVE the dress btw no matter which color you choose. Why can’t my friends pick cute dresses like this when I am a bridesmaid!!!

    If you like fun and youthful, go with the orange.  Suprisingly, all skin tones and hair colors go well with orange.  But more than your venue, think about your dress: what color will look the best next to you?  Lastly, always trust your first instinct – it’s always right!

    Both are pretty options!  I voted for brown based on color comaptability- I think brown looks great on everyone- depending on the shade of orange, it may be tricky.

    The orange looks fantastic!  The brown, to me, just looks like the poor man’s black dress.  I would rather wear an orange dress than brown (on any occasion!).  GO ORANGE!
