My bridesmaid’s dresses are trickling in… I have 8 girls and 4 dresses are in so far and I feel stress slowly but surely lifting! 🙂 My flower girls will be in the same color dress (david’s bridal guava) but with a champagne-colored sash and the groomsmen will be in champagne colored vests and ties with coral/rose boutenneires(sp?) to match the bridesmaid dress… I’m having trouble figuring out how to tie in champagne with the bridesmaids though. I was planning on putting champagne ribbon on all their bouquets but is that enough? I feel like adding a sash to their dress may be too much… I bought them all matching shoes as one of their gifts and they’re the same color as the dress (see picture)…
Any suggestions on how to tie in champagne on my bridesmaids??… let me know! thanks! 🙂

i think it would actually look better if you left the champagne color off the bridesmaids…i think it might look too matchy matchy, you know? bouquet ribbon is a great idea.

My vote: NONONONO matchy shoes. It’s too much… champagne or silver shoes or something like that might be a little less WHOA.

Sorry I can’t be of any help with the color issue, but I love that dress. It is adorable!

In my honest opinion, maybe do the dresses in Champagne? I dont like the shoes AND the dress in that color, its too much! Or keep the dress that color and find champagne or soft gold shoes or accessories!

Those shoes are so cute! I’d say just leave champagne for the little bouquets and leave it off the dresses.

I was going to suggest champagne/gold shoes, but read that you bought them shoes to match the dresses. I agree that it’s too much with color. Since you haven’t bought the dressed yet, what about those dresses in champagne?

I think you should leave the shoes and do champagne dress.. or opposite.. i also think this look is too matchy-matchy, but if you love it then stick with it

it says that she already bought the dresses and shoes….
i think a champagne bouquet tie is a good idea. you can play around with a champagne sash, but it might be too matchy-matchy.

I know it! I was going to do champagne shoes but the shoes I picked didn’t come in champagne and my wedding is April 2nd so they were very pushy for me to make the order 🙁
I’m hoping that since they aren’t long dresses it won’t seem like too much of that color..even though it’s gonna be “matchy-matchy” At this point I’m not picky about that… Unless I can cancel the shoe order? maybe? hmmpphh what to do, what to do?…

@kitzy: Thanks..forgot that the dresses are purchased.
Well, in that case…..can you try the champagne sash? It it doesn’t suit you then the ribbon on the bouquets will be the only option left.

If you already ordered the shoes then maybe you can do white bouqets with champaign ribbon? Maybe white flowers with champagne in their hair? That way it breaks it up and gives you all of your colors without being monochromatic

I like the matching shoes!

I’ll agree with the PPs that I wouldn’t do the matching color of the dresses and shoes (so if there is a way to still cancel the shoe order and get champange shoes, I’d go that route).
If not, I’d do white flowers with champagne ribbon to help break up the guava color a bit. Other than the ribbon on the flowers (and shoes if you can), I wouldn’t add any more champange to the BMs.
