    I like the Bill Levkoff  in the mocha. It really goes well with your dress.

    I like the mocha better myself. I can see how the champagne could make the girls look washed out.. If I was a bridesmaid, I think thats what I would like best ๐Ÿ™‚ You could get nice pink accessories to get more of the colors you wanted ๐Ÿ™‚ 

    As for the mismatched dresses, I really like the idea! However it has to work with the feel of your wedding. What kind of wedding are you having ? ๐Ÿ™‚

    The mismatched idea sometimes works, but often doesn’t in my view. I feel the dresses you have picked out are a little too casual for the style of wedding you are going for – I don’t see it as vintagy enough.

    I think the mocha colour is lovely and soft – not at all to harsh against your pink and ivory colour theme. In fact, I think it’s a beautiful contrast and will compliment your dress and the softer colours in your wedding perfectly!

    I voted for the BL in Mocha also.  Super cute gown and the color is nice.  I think that your flowers will really “pop” against the mocha (moreso than champagne).

    I love mismatched Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, so I voted for that. I think it could work really well with your vintage garden theme. BUT I also really like the dress you picked out (in mocha). I guess it depends on your BMs’ budgets, and how much time you want to spend shopping with them for mismatched dresses…

    i like the mis matched sometimes..but i have to agree with PP..the ones you picked do not compliment the elegance of your dress…id go with the BL in mocha and maybe have them all have pink and champagne flowers in thier hair.

    I am a big fan of the mismatched dresses, but I’m biased since that’s what I’m doing for my wedding. Have you considered a blush tone for the dresses since you’re thinking of champagne and pink? Perhaps a blush tone would be a little warmer. Personally, while I think satin Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses can be very elegant and beautiful, I don’t know how wearable they are post-wedding. I’ve never really gone to a cocktail party in a satin dress, but maybe that’s just me. I agree that mismatched can detract from the “elegance” element, but I think it ups the “vintage” feel by adding more texture and softness.

    Here’s some mismatched Bridesmaid or Best Man inspiration for your perusal:

    I really love the Bill Levkoff dress but you are right, champagne most definitely does not look good on everyone. My colors are also blush pink and champagne and I used the Euro Pink color by Bill Levkoff for the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

    I don’t know if that is an option for you but it is certainly a more universally flattering color.

    Here is a photo. Please IGNORE the darker shade pink on the bottom, the camera did something funny. The lighter pink on top is the correct shade for Euro Pink. Just FYI the sash is Bill Levkoff Euro Champagne.

    I also love the mocha! While i think the champagne on the model sucks, it probably would look much better on your girls and in real life.

    How do you feel about something like this? It is a gorgeous color in person and has pockets! Plenty of other styles you can get in this color too. Allure BM Style # 1235
