I wasn’t planning on having bridesmaids until a couple of weeks ago, but I will now be having 2.
I feel a little flustered since I have to find 2 dresses in less than 7 weeks!!
Our table linen will be plum (dark purple). The flowers will be orchids.
The invitations were brown and burgundy (Yes, I know the colors don’t really match, but the fiance really wanted purple linen, go figure).
I originally wanted my bridesmaids to wear orange (to go with a fall theme), but now I’m not so sure because of the color of the linen. I have also thought about purple or a light pink (or rose color).
Which colors do you think would be best for the bridesmaids?
I would appreciate any and all input. Thanks!!

Wow! You do have a short ammount of time before your wedding to find them dresses!
As a color reference, JCrews Eggplant is pretty good for what you are thinking about?

@starshine04: i think orange is nice if you are having a fall theme. if you want a monochromatic look, you can choose a lighter shade of purple. or for a neutral look, go with a silver/grey colour.

I would say a Lilac color or an orange color for the dresses!!

Ah! Thank you so much for your input. I greatly appreciate it.
I totally forgot to specify that I was thinking of more of a coral.
We were thinking of getting gold napkins, but after looking at the picture mypinkshoes put up, maybe we could do orange instead.
After posting up my first post, I, of course, looked at more dresses, and started thinking of burgudy.
I feel so clueless about tying in all the colors. haha.

@starshine04: I think orange (or coral)would really pop against those fall colors. I think sometimes with such a short amount of time, your gut instinct is best 🙂

My suggestion is open up Paint or some other application and put the blocks of colour you are having in the wedding already and then start putting the colour you are thinking for the bridesmaid dress with the colours to see what works! This is what I did!

Thank you all for your input! It has been helpful.
I went to Alfred Angelo with my girls today and this is what we picked (in that color, persimmon):
We paid a rush order for it to arrive by mid-October.
Thank you, again! 🙂
