My orange is called Tangerine and it’s David’s Bridal. Here’s what it looks like

What DB color are you looking at?  Because both tangerine and saffron have several dresses that are non-strapless, albeit not in cotton sateen.  However, I think they only have a couple styles in that fabric overall.  Just a thought.

Plus, have you had them try the dresses on? Strapless doesn’t have to be a nightmare just because you are busty. See if they’ll try on what you like. I love that tangerine color…I am so happy with it!

@farmersdaughter: I’m doing the same color but pick what you want thing from DB.  I’m saying that everyone has to stick to the silk/flat taffeta/satin.  I just picked the ones that I knew matched (there were 9) and sent the links to everyone and told them to pick.

The cotton sateen looks VERY different from the other fabrics, IMO.  I would pick one group of fabrics and stick with those.  Like all chiffon, all jersey, or all satin/flat taffeta.  This is just my opinion though and you could mix and match. I just didn’t like the way it looked together.

I agree with hotchild. The different types of fabrics do look different in color, so be careful with that. All of my ladies, well at least the Bridesmaids, are in the same dress (not the one above) in the same color.

My gals dresses were by Jenny Yoo – they were all strapless but what’s nice is that you have the option of adding spaghetti straps, or choosing a similar style with different top. My gals wore Lucy- but Jenny Yoo makes a style called paige that is similar- I don’t know how much you want to spend- my gals were $240 each but totally worth it. There is definately a difference in quality and the way it photographs. Personally I’m not too fond of Davids Bridal and some other styles and I see lots of weddings with the same color dresses.

I got married in August- this summer it was a little cooler and usually in the upper 70s lower 80s- On our wedding day it was 1 of 3 days that the temp reached 90! My maids were happy their dresses were light and they loved the color! Never thought i’d pick orange, but I fell absolutely in love with it.  What do you think?!?!

what about finding a dress on etsy?  i’m getting bridesmaid dresses from Amanda Archer and she is awesome.  She definitely has a orange dress too!  I’d check out her site.

I am looking for a burnt orange as well!  Davids Bridal only has orange!  LilMissPriss I LOVEE  the color of your girls dresses!  Did you buy them online or at a store!  This is such a great orange!  We plan on getting married in Octboer and I think this color would be great!!  Do you happen to know the name of the color?  Awesome dresses!!!

Would having different shades of orange be terrible? It’s pretty popular these days to have one color palette but different shades. Depending on how many girls are in the party, you could just make sure that several of them have the different options. It would look bad if you had one girl in a different fabric while everyone else chose the same. But if you have variety it could actually look very nice and give a unique spin on the pictures. Especially if the girls all get to choose their style of dress according to their body type. Just my opinion… but I say have different fabrics and styles with one color scheme. Could be very pretty!

MissBell – the color is called MANDARIN – i think it would be great in October, and what I was initially worried about was it looking too “halloweenish” but it looked great – The dresses were amazing I don’t think I could’ve been happier with them and they have POCKETS!! How many maids do you have? I know my gals are actually interested in selling theirs and they all are in absolutely brand new shape – if you’re interested, let me know their sizes and what you were thinking for price – they paid $240 plus tax and alterations (dresses, even if too big could be altered down easily adn look just as stunning!)

farmersdaughter- yes it was ivorys oranges and greens- see my bouquet below :)
