All of my bridesmaids have said the color that I chose for them to wear doesn’t look good on them! HOW ON EARTH CAN IT NOT LOOK GOOD ON ALL OF YOU? What are your opinons of the color. I’m still debating the dress, but I really like the color. The yellow will match with a grey, that the guys will be wearing as their suites.
HELP ME! Give me suggestions!!

Well even though the color is pretty. That color can really wash out many skin tones. I am a person that can never wear any hue of yellow. Maybe do a grey dress with yellow flowers. 🙂

You either have to tell them to suck it up or you could put the bridesmaids in grey and have yellow accesories and flowers. Yellow pumps would be so much fun.

I’d have to see it in person, but it might not look so great on my fair skin either. I wore a more bold shade of yellow for my BFs wedding but I had a spray tan. In hind sight, my skin color looks kind of fake in those photos.

That said, I’ll see if my girls like the color, but in the end I’ll be picking color and probably length.

If none of your bridesmaids like the colour, can you pick a slightly different shade of yellow? It does seem a bit pale in thet picture, so I could definitely see how it might wash them out, and in that case it might not look the best in photos… Just about any colour will go with grey, and if it helps keep the peace, I’d try and find a slightly different shade.
In the end, I’m sure whatever you go with, you’ll find something fantastic 🙂

@cole41611: yellow is a tough color. I never ever wear it. There are lots of colors- this is just one that tends to wash out a lot of skin tones.

I think it’s a really pretty dress and pretty color, but it is a color I can’t wear. I have blond hair and literally do not have one yellow item in my wardrobe because it does nothing for me, so I completely understand where they are coming from. Unless you are completely decided on the color, I would maybe get your maid of honor’s input.

Can you have them try it on? If they really do look bad, you would probably want them wearing another color, right?

Yellow is a really hard color to pull off I know in that shade I would look beyond washed out.

I agree with others that say that yellow can be tricky. I’m very pale, have blonde hair, blue eyes and freckles and pale yellows do not work for me. I’ve tried to wear a really bold, more mustard yellow, and that’s ok, but yellow just doesn’t work for everyone.

I think yellow is a touchy color. It only looks good on a certain type of girl and her personality. Me personally, yellow does not flatter me.
I am having my groomsmen all wear grey as well. The bridesmaids are wearing navy blue dresses…and we are having pink/peach flowers that really contrast well. If you don’t like the idea of the pink and peach flowers…you can subitute it with your yellow theme.
