What are your wedding colors, besides this blue?

I  might not be great at this, but I was thinking maybe a darker blue (navy or midnight) so it is more of a compliment to the blue but won’t clash with the yellow and orange flowers.

EDIT: Maybe even an offwhite / white bolero or shrug could do the trick too…

FYI:  I found my bridesmaids’ pashminas on eBay.  There was a seller who has so many listings that I was often the only person bidding on them, and he started the bidding at $0.01.  I think that the most I paid for one was $0.18.  The only downside is that he’s overseas, so with shipping, I think they each ended up being about $7.00.  Still a screaming deal!

I think ivory or white to match your dress might look nice or something to match the shoe color…what are they wearing? Brown would also look okay, especially with the sunflowers.

By the way, my bridesmaids’ dresses are a similar color and we are using orange callas for the flowers. With a mid-October wedding I haven’t decided what to do for shawls/pashminas but will mostly likely need something!

I’m sure there are better quality pashminas out there, but I can’t tell the difference between the ones I got on eBay and the ones that I bought in Italy for $10.  They snag fairly easily (especially when worn with a rain coat with velcro closures – oops), but they’re really, really soft.

how about asking your bridesmaids for their ideas / preferences (on this and the shoes)? is there a fashionista among them? they might appreciate giving some input since they have to wear it, especially if you’re having a hard time deciding.

yellow would be fun if you’re going with yellow shoes – tho i guess getting just the right shade / same tone of yellow might be hard.

This is me at a wedding wearing a pashmina over a strapless dress – I liked the look and I took a hew out of the dress! For yours I might take inspiration from other wedding colours or the flowers!

Also pashmina’s are often not that warm – it’s better than nothing but if you are really worried about temperature I might get them a warmer knit cardigan or shrug. For this wedding it was June and I used it to keep the sun off my already burnt shoulders!

I bought these for my bridesmaids.  I was afraid the quality was going to be poor but they actually seem really nice!  They’re not too heavy because there’s no telling how hot or cold it will be in September.  I haven’t pulled them out of the packaging (dog hair) but they feel soft and the colors look great (the yellow’s NOT as bright as it appears in the picture but otherwise they’re fairly true.) 

I think I would do the yellow if I were you.  Basically I asked my girls what color they each wanted and got them all different ones.  (They’re wearing black and champagne dresses.)
