My choice would be the Orange and Navy, these two dresses go nicely together too in style.

I think having a variety of jewel tones for the bridesmaids would look good together.  I think the fuschia, orange, and blue would all look good together… maybe adding a purple for the fourth color.  I love the idea of all mismatched!

Ug, I have no freaking clue why that link goes to photo #2 – it even says orange/fuschia in the link!  Anyway, click back one photo for the right photo… πŸ˜‰

I like all these dresses πŸ™‚ I’m a mcpaleperson and navy is one of my favorite colors to wear, the only one that might be iffy for pale people is orange but it depends how pinkish they are

I’m partial to jewel tones over pastels, and I am in love with all of the above dresses! I honestly don’t think you can go wrong, but I would peronally do the lighter blue with the fuschia (or even maybe orange). Beautiful!

I’m super pale as well and almost every dress in my closet is navy or a dark blue!  I find it to be a very safe color for skin tones.  Because of my skin I probably would look horrible in the fushia and orange dresses.  I love that you are taking this into consideration.  I see so many girls on here who need the beige dresses or yellow scheme (and although they look great),  I hope that none of their girls have my skin!


also I had these pop up on my pintrest board today!  Not sure if this is what you are thinking, but thought I’d post them anyways.  (also the dresses are mexican, I was just looking at the colors!)

I would do two and two.


-Navy and fuschia

-Orange and teal

-Fushcia and teal

πŸ™‚ Since you’re having a summer wedding, I think you can get away with mixing the brighter colors. Just tie them all in into your bouquets..or maybe do all white bouquets?

I’m super, super pale and I look much better in dark/bright colors than pale/pastel colors!  Those are the ones that wash me out! πŸ™‚
