First of all, I am so sorry to hear about your father-in-law to be.  What a stressful and painful situation this must be for you and your family.  Brown will be fine, even if it is not a “traditional” summer wedding color.  Pair it with lots of bright colors in the bouquets, pinks, oranges, purples, greens, yellows.  Add some whites as well to brigten and soften the palate.  It will be beautiful, and most importent, it will be a day to celebrate in a difficult time.  Good luck!

I’m so sorry to hear about your Father-In-Law.  I agree with Rosiebear on the colors.  Pinks are easy to find right now so that should help out.  My cousin got married and had teh dark brown dresses with bright lemon yellow.  At first when I heard the combo I was like WHAT?!  But when you saw the flowers with the brown it was really pretty.

I hope the best for you in this stressful/emotional time

I’m so sorry to hear about your FIL! What a horrible and stressful thing. I agree with the ladies who posted before me – the brown will be fine. Get some bright coloured flowers or a coloured sash for them to wear. No big deal. 🙂

I am so, so, so sorry. My heart just absolutely breaks for you… my grandfather died of lung cancer when I was 16 and I handled it so badly- I didn’t speak to him for MONTHS after we found out it was terminal. I think moving up your wedding is a great idea! Also, I think the brown dresses will be totally, totally fine- I like the suggestion of adding a sash and adding in alot of pink! I think it’ll be cute and totally fine either way.

That’s terrible about your future FIL! As for the brown dresses, bring up the length and get a bright sash that ties in with your wedding colors (pink, lt. green).  I got married at the end of June, & my girls wore strapless black tea-length gowns with apple red sashes.  Not to summery, but very pretty.  Again, my condolences to you and the Fiance, & best of luck!

sorry about the situation.

dark brown always looks good with turquoise or pink.

Easy fix…tropical or bright colored flowers. Hopefully everything will be okay with your family. Dresses should be the last thing on your mind right now.
