The dresses will be lovely and it sounds like there will be plenty of pink.  The pink will pop a lot more in accessories against brown, anyway.  There’s nothing you can do to change the dresses, so just focus on finding fabulous flowers and accessories you love and forget that you ever had any option to get non-brown dresses.  It’ll seriously look beautiful.

I think the dresses will look great, especially by adding in the pink with the shoes, flowers, etc.  You are not crazy to have a brown dress in Spring – if so I was crazy too because I had a brown dress with teal accents in Summer!

I agree with others… I think that it actually will help the pink stand out more, if anything. Start finding cool accessories!

First off I love that dress! Second I think that it’s not weird at all to have a brown dress for a spring wedding. And I think it will all look great with the pink shoes, flowers, etc.

Those are great dresses and I love the brown color. They will be perfect for your spring wedding, especially with pink accessories.

Could you maybe do a pink sash or shrug?  I really wanted brown dresses but then I selected my colors and brown wasn’t one of them.  Remember Christina’s failed wedding on Grey’s Anatomy?  After that day I thought I must have them since they were so cute.  Very similar to yours.

Pretty dress!  It’s very flowy and spring-y.  The brown will be a great neutral to set off the pinks–especially the pink flowers!  I’m sure it’ll be beautiful.

I love them in brown, and the pink accents will be perfect. I tried to focus on dresses they could wear again and I think brown is more versatile, so you can be happy knowing they will look lovely in your wedding with plenty of pink accents AND they’ll look lovely every time they wear the dress in the future!

I think they’ll look great. I saw some girls trying on that exact dress when I was in Alfred Angelo a couple weeks ago… it is super cute and flattering… I’m sure the girls will look fantastic!

The brown dress with pink accents is much more elegant than a pink dress.  But it is still spring-y cuz of the style. I think it looks great!!! Pink flowers will def. look better with the brown dress and give good contrast…imagine if u had a pink dress, the flowers would have to be pink anyway, cuz who wants brown flowers??? lol

I personally hate wearing pink, so I totally feel your bms who aren’t wild about pink.  Pink seriously ALWAYS makes me look like a big giant strawberry, and I feel self conscious and ugly in it.  I wore a pink bridesmaids dress once and was pretty uncomfortable in it – and when your maids feel uncomfortable, that will show in your pictures.  Just think about how much better your pictures will look with happy, smiling bridesmaids!
