I am making my bridesmaids dresses, and i love all the colours of sweet peas, so i decided i would have all my 4 bridesmaids in those colours, and that they would carry roses and sweet pea bouquets.
pinks, purples lilacs and a pale yellow match the bouquets really well, but i am not sure that yellow has a place amongst the other 3 dresses ……sometimes i think yes, because the yellow breaks up the purples, then sometimes i think no…..it just doesnt look right. its not buttercup in-yer-face yellow, its a pale lemon yellow.
so i have mocked up 2 colour charts, one is just with the pinks and purples, with no yellow, and the other one is with yellow……i think with the bouquets, yellow looks good, but i am not 100% sure……any ideas?
if i omit the yellow, then i would go for the 4 purples/pinks, but not neccasarily the exact colours on the charts…..that was just to show a with and without yellow….

Yeah, the yellow seems to stand out like a sore thumb. I’d go with #1!

if you wanted yellow, why not add it to the belt on all of them? so that it ties the diff colors together? But I wouldn’t do a special yellow dress unless it is for your Maid/Matron of Honor

I like the yellow, I just don’t think it really fits. The other colors are so similar, the yellow would just stand out too much.

Hmmmm, what if i change one of the purples to blue? then they all look different and not similar in any way.
i also like this selection too, just removing the deep purple for another pink colour.
I also like this
all of them have 3 of the 4 colours i chose. i really would like to have yellow and pink, but i’m desperatly trying to find something they look good with.

Four colours that i think might work, a little bit of photoshop to remove the green dress, and i quite like these.

I’d just use the yellow for florals! =)

@Vintage-me: I think that looks nice without that awkward green color… but you just want to be careful that they don’t end up looking like easter leftovers.

I like the last pic you posted of the yellow, purple, pink & blue. 🙂

I’d say do chart #2. Put the maid of honor in the yellow. That way the color will be tied in, and she’ll stand out. But in a good way. =)
