I think it’s doable! It might be hard, but I think it’ll be doable. Maybe give them a sense of unity with the same style dress and same color shoes?

I think it could work – another idea would be to have your Maid/Matron of Honor wearing black or other dark color – which would help with the fade from dark to light.  

I think keeping the fabric material (such as silk or chiffon, or whatever you want) the same with all the dresses will be a key for success.

I think the key to ombre would be to keep as many factors the same and only change one or two factors.

 

Example: since they’ll be in different shades of color as long as you keep the dress length and fabric the same I think it will look fantastic. I think you should keep their shoes and flowers the same. 

I think you could even do slightly different dress styles as long as they are the same length and fabric type

Or you could do something like this.

I don’t have any idea the style of dresses you’re interested in, but lots of the Bari Jay styles have 4 tones of green available, like this one.

Now of course in person they might be ugly together, but you could at least to look at the swatches, then your Maid/Matron of Honor would be in sage, then forest, to emerald and lastly hunter. 

Otherwise I think the champagne would be perfectly nice with green tones.

@rpalao:  First off we have the same wedding date 9/1/13!! I’m OBSSESSED with ombre and plan to do something very similar. Same dress but different shades.  I too was thinking to have my Maid/Matron of Honor in a different color completely but she mentioned that maybe that would be too much and stick out to the point of distracting from the main event .. ME! lol – I would have neever even thought of that but it was an interesting point.  Something to consider though. 🙂
