Ok so I have been stressing over my dress decision FOREVER. It shouldn’t be this hard…. but I am a two wedding bride! I have finally resolved to just get two dresses. My themes were too different to go with one dress and retain my sanity. I am hoping to find my winter wonderland dress at church street bridal otherwise I have resolved to buy the one off the rack locally that I like and be done with it. It is just for family after all and they will bash my choice regardless.
The dress for my huge second (vintage) wedding is the one causing me anxiety. This is our blowout wedding. The dress I will look at myself in every day for the rest of my life. (He plans to have my bridal portrait over our mantle eek!) I found a dress I love but I have questions. A) What will my bridesmaids wear? (I don’t want to cost them a fortune.) B) What colors to choose? The seller recommended ivories or silvery blues or really anything else I desire. I don’t really think ivory is my color. My friends all say I need cool tones. The color I look best in is moss green. (Which is why I wanted Chrome Diopside for my engagement ring but alas it is to soft a stone.) Could I have my wedding dress in moss green or will that be to much? Should I just go with silvery blues. I had originally contemplated Sophia Tolli’s Skye just for the color blue. This is stressing me out. Ideas anyone?

Do whatever you want! It’s your party and you can do what you want to.
All kidding aside, you can probably find a dress you love in moss green, and no problem. The thing about ivory is that most people look good in it, that’s probably why they suggested it. Your bridesmaids can wear whatever other colors are in your palette. No worries 🙂

Woah, breathe. 😀 Lovely dress, by the way!
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with moss green for your second dress. I think vintage palettes usually run to combinations of neutral – tan/ivory and muted pinks and purples – but I’ve also seen a few interpretations of “vintage”.
Have you tried putting together an inspiration board to help you sort out your vision?

I think silvery blues and creams or moss greens and creams would be awesome. That just desn’t seem like a one color dress to me. I’m sure it’ll be fabulous whatevery ou choose.

@Miss Suburban: Yes but I can’t post mt wedding wire boards here for some reason. I am going for this look with milkglasses vases and wildflowers and birds nests and throwing a little something quirky in just because it is me:

These are some of the colors I have been debating:

I was thinking about these dresses for my bridesmaids but was unsure that it matched well

@secondchances: I think the bridesmaid gown is themed well, but the gown looks wide. Hard to tell with the model sitting. Would you be okay with that? What about using a peasant-style top (a bit more breathable and similar to your top)? I suppose it depends on the material it is made out of, but the dresses may be hot or uncomfortable with a collar to the neck.
If you are using the colors in the dress above and using the bridesmaid dress as above, what about moss green with a darker sash (dark moss or forest green?) and/or cream with a dark sash (copper?)? Did you want to have the dresses be a different color on top and bottom?

@secondchances: I also found another website with more casual dresses but they specialize in “vintage” looks: http://www.bluevelvetvintage.com/ Again, depends on what you’re looking for but they break their stock down by “era” or style of dress.

Put yourself in moss green and put the bridesmaids in ivory! 🙂
