- Wedding: September 2012
ARGH. I of course can’t pick anything easy for colours, oh no, WHY would I do that to myself??
My two main colours are apple green (chartreuse) and fuchsia, with splashes of orange (in the flowers, etc.) My big plan was to have the girls in different dress styles in fuchsia with apple green sashes and the flower girl in apple green with a fuchsia sash. Finding the right fuchsia shade was a PROCESS. It was really brutal. So, I THINK–am like 98% sure–I found the right shade by Sophia Tolli called lipstick. It’s not too pink, not too purple, and that’s what I want. No hot pink, no purple.
The problem now is that colour really only comes in chiffon, which I didn’t look at, or satin. I love the satin dresses BUT I don’t think any of them will look good with a sash. *cry*
Please, I need your opinions on the dresses we are considering (three girls). I will go find the AG fabric and make sashes myself if necessary as ST doesn’t have the right colour, but I just think fuchsia dresses with no tie-in to the green will look as great. Also, I don’t really like all the same dresses which is why I wanted different styles, though maybe I need to let this go as the girls will all have different bouquets (orchids, callas, pin cushions). Or, maybe I should just go with chiffon. Will chiffon be strange in September? Could I do chiffon and satin? Satin dresses:

Also this dress, but I think the shape will look funny if there are two girls in sheaths: http://www.tjformal.com/709104/products/Sophia-Tolli-Bridesmaid-Dress-BY11168T.html
