Ok so here’s the deal: we’re having a rustic/antque map inspired wedding. My Fiance is wearing Air Force mess dress
one groomsman is wearing Air Force Service dress:
Another groomsman is wearing Army service dress:
And the rest are wearing a basic black tux with navy vest and tie.
I feel like the girls being in navy dresses will be too matchy matchy, but I don’t want them to not work right either. I’m really liking this dress in this color
But would that look right? Any suggestions would be so freaking appreciated!!

I think the dresses are cute! I, personally, would try to incorporate navy on the girls and green on the guys if you go with this color dress… like within a sash, the bouquets, and/or the boutonnieres? However, I don’t think navy dresses would be too matchy matchy as long as they are in a different material than the suits.
Here is a picture with both green and navy… they look great together!
(You could do the opposite of this… green dress with white and blue flowers)

The green is really cute but I think I would go with a champagne color like this:

I think the green will be great. The 3 uniforms will read as neutrals, so you don’t have to worry on that count.
Also remember, no boutonnieres on the uniforms.

Ahhh thank y’all sooooo much for the feedback! I’m really terrible at being a girl and making things coordinate lol. So try and accessorize the girls with navy/green to tie everything together, the uniforms are considered neutral, and maybe try some other form of a neutral for the dresses. Let’s see how it goes from here!

I like the green. But I also think it would be okay to have the girls in navy. With the variety in men’s outfits, I think it wouldn’t be too matchy matchy.

I wonder if the dresses are too casual to be in the same party as the uniforms and tuxedos. As for the color, I don’t know if you are intentionally picking an Army green, but that’s what it’s making me think.

I love these colors together. I say tie a little navy into the girls dresses and you’ll be perfect!

I absolutely love the green dresses with the mess dress uniforms!! My fiancé will be wearing his mess dress and we are combining it with green bridesmaids dresses as well!

I think it could work really well together. Plus the pic that @Cryssieshine: gave us to look at really helps.

I am sorry but the green is not very flattering. I like the navy blue much better with maybe silver accents. It is classic and elegant.
