    What color bouquet are you wanting the BMs to carry?  I think if they carried orange, then it might tie to the GM.

    I don’t think it will be a hot mess, but I do think you should chose 1 dress in 1 color, nobody will notice the stone on the bracelet

    If you want to do a rainbow I would do black dresses and each girl gets their color bracelet.

    The bracelets are beautiful, and I love that you plan to choose a color specific to each bridesmaid according to what reminds you of her- that’s very sweet and personal!  As far as the colors of the dress go, I definitely wouldn’t go for rainbow just for the sake of matching the bracelets.  I also don’t believe that everything in a wedding needs to be matching.  You can have the guys in orange and the girls can wear a color that looks good on them, but still compliments the orange color you chose for the guys.  I think you said “persimmion” as a color option for the girls- like a more reddish orange right?  That sounds cute!  Whatever bridesmaids color you choose, you can then just use the flowers to help tie in the orange from the groomsmen.  As far as the style of the dress goes, you may want your MOH to stand out in a different style, let all the girls choose what looks good on them (but all with the same fabric type), or just find one dress that looks good on all of them (this may not be as hard as you think! my girls are TOTALLY different body shapes and we found a short, sweetheart neckline dress that flattered all of them!)  Good luck shopping and let us know what you end up doing!
