Do you have to have bridal shop dresses? You have the option of researching large chain stores to find bridesmaid dresses like J.Crew, Nordstrom, etc. that sell beautiful bridesmaid dresses. Some may even have color swatches. Oh and the best part? The dresses can be in the same color but not the same style. That is always a beautiful touch!

I got my BM dress from After Six at dessy.com.  They have a lot of bright hues that might work!

I agree with roddybride – jcrew has some great sales on their bridesmaid dresses, and they are pretty & can be worn afterwards.  also, if you’re not opposed to just ordering online, bestbridalprices.com is great and has great discounts.  alfred angelo also has good dresses – i’ve been an alfred angelo bridesmaid 3 times. good luck!

Maybe put your girls in black or neutral, and have your two chosen colors for florals, accessories, etc.?

Argh, by “neutral” I meant “grey.”  Yeah, I don’t get it either.  Wink

I’m doing what I call a chartreuse color as my main color with black accents.  I had the HARDEST time finding dresses in a bright green without looking too limey or sage, or mint, or any other greens that are out there.  I finally lucked out and my girls are buying dresses worn once from a bridal party of a bride my mom knows.  It’s the perfect! color green and would have normally cost over 200 each.  It’s by jim hjelm JH5520.  We’re switching out the green band for a bigger black one. 

Plan B before I found these dresses was to do a solid black one with all green bouquets for the girls.

The other way you could do both colors is to find a dress the blue color you like since there aren’t many bright blue flowers and do green bouquets.  There are some pretty bright green flowers: spider mums, kermit mums, green roses, green zinnias, mini green hydrangeas, viburnum….etc!  Mixing them all together as a bouquet will look cute against blue dresses.

Good luck!!

I looked at DB’s too. The clover is too kelly and the celedon/honeydew is too yellow. I actually thought about having my girls in their blue shades. The oasis and mermaid colors are what I was looking at. Have you picked up a DB catalogue lately? There is a photo spread in the Fall catalogue that has three girls in bright blues – oasis, turquoisse and mermaid. I also like the cornflower color, which is the least teal leaning of the four shades. I love these colors, but I am sticking instead with my original decision which is to let my girls pick their own green dresses.

*Try pgs 12-13 of the Fall catalogue.

Try amazon.com, maybe?

I’m doing Burgundy as my main color. When a BM and I went into David’s one of the consultants tried to talk me out of thier wine color because of the limited selection. Her choice was Berry which was no where near what I had in mind. lol.

could you do neutral dresses and add accents (ribbons, sashes, etc) in your colors? or search online. sometimes dresses come in colors that aren’t offered in store. if your bms are not local, you can get their measurements (they can get a friend to help them take it, or go to their local cleaners) and you can order on their behalf in a bridal store – it doesn’t have to be done all online./
