I think more brown might be too much and the colors might not combine well if they are different materials. Pashminas (and similar items) come in a variety of colors so you could use one of the other colors from your wedding perhaps? My BM dresses are chocolate brown and I’m either doing blush or ivory wraps. Pier 1 has them for $10 and they are a good quality or you can find them for more $ or less $ online depending on what you’re looking for.

I’d say you could go with pearls or metalics (gold or silver depending on what your BMs might like to wear?) but keep it simple. If you are asking about jewelery for your dress you could get away with pearls, something sparkly or a combo 🙂

You all will look great!

If you aren’t planning on them wearing the wraps during the ceremony then I would get them wraps in their favorite colors.  If you would like for them to wear the wraps during the ceremony I would go for one of your accent colors or maybe a champaign or off-white kind of color.  As for jewelery I think pearls or a simple drop pendent necklace would look lovely.

If you check out Macys, Kohls, or JC Penny’s they always have sets of pearls on sale.

I thik brown wraps might be a bit much, but how about a lighter coffee/dark cream/latte colour?

I also think ivory would look great!
