So these are the colours to pick from. 🙂 My SIL has already bought her dress out of excitement (which is lovely) in Pistachio. Which is fine because I love the colour and that wass the original idea. I thought I had all my dresses sorted but the swatch for the Cadette Blue was a lot darker in person than I thought it was.
Basically I have four girls – one has the pistachio and I’d planned to do another one in the pistachio and two in cadette blue.
What do you all think? Should I just let the girls pick their favourite? Are there colours that you think would suit best?
My actual dress style is below (in the pistachio).

Oo so pretty. Loving these colors. I would let the girls pick, and then in pictures,line them up systematically so there is an color variation. Or you can pick colors for girl height, unless they hate that color for some reason.

Well the Pistachio is fairly light & pastel, so I would stay with the same tone. My first choice would be the ‘ice blue’ & my second choice would be the ‘silver blue’.

Peanut-Sue: The ice blue is really light in colour. In saying that though, I really like the silver blue. I like the steel as well. 🙂

Ice blue is nice.. but why not go all green and go emerald geen then pick up various shades of green in the bouquets.

Yeah, gorgeous dresses. I would stay away from the turquoise (it sends the color combo in a whole other direction) but besides that, any way you do it, your bridesmaids will look wonderful.

Since it is a light color, I think the steel or silver blue would look best beside it.

I say use either emerald or teal. That way it still stays within the green family. Also, jewel tones are much easier to pull off where something like the ice blue would be pretty hard if you’re fair skinned.

Thanks everyone! Very helpful absolutely!
I’ll get some new swatches and see how I go.
I’m thinking the turquoise takes it in the wrong direction – just too bright. I’m liking the steel and silver blue more and more honestly. 🙂
