I really need help–I’m driving my fiance nuts with the fact that I can’t decide about bridesmaids’ dresses. Our wedding is in August with a lime green, tangerine, and cherry red color scheme. The men will be in tuxedos.
I am torn between having the girls wear a lime dress from Aria Dress, or an orange one from Jenny Yoo. The first dress is the Aria style we’d be getting, the second is the lime color.
What do you think?

I love the Aria dress in lime! Do that! 🙂

I think it really depends on the shape of each of your ladies. They are both beautiful dresses. Why not use both styles depending on your ladies body types. 🙂

I really like both styles of dress and I think the colors for each will be great for a summer wedding! That being said, I do think both colors might be a bit hard for some people to wear, depending on their skin tone etc… If you’re equally torn between the dresses, why don’t you take some of your Bridesmaid or Best Man shopping with you so they can try on the color (even if it’s not the right dress) and you can see which color looks best on them?
It’s just a suggestion as I’ve been in weddings where I wished the bride had tried out the color on some of us before choosing it. I was in a wedding a few years ago wearing a dress that was the most hideous color on 3/4s of the BMs (me included!) The dress looked lovely in the pictures and I know what the bride was picturing in her head, but sadly, most of us could not pull off the color…

I like the Aria dress best. For the color–What if you had both colors, a few girls in each? Just a thought…
Otherwise I like Ree’s idea– see what your bridesmaids look best in!

I would actually vote for the cherry red if that was a choice but if not, I really think you need to let some of the girls try the lime and orange on because those are bold colors.

I vote for lime…green is my favorite color 🙂

I’d do a vote between your bridesmaids. You may be surprised what they all agree with and they’ll feel you were considerate to let them help with the color while you still choose the dress.

No interest in putting them in the cherry red? I think my girls would murder me if I made them wear lime or orange.

I would have the girls try on and vote for the dress. The are both pretty, but the lime color may not look right on some skin tones. I look awful in green and orange, so a less bold color may work better if you have bms that are pale like me. Just a thought…

Thank you all for your input! The red is not an option…my fiance doesn’t really like red, so I had to promise it would just be an accent color. 🙂
My Maid/Matron of Honor has tried on both dresses, and she likes the orange better. But the other 3 ladies say they like both. (I have such nice bridesmaids!)
My problem boils down to this: I like the orange dress better, but the lime color better, though I am worried about how bright it is. Sadly, these are the only combinations that work, the Jenny Yoo green isn’t right and the Aria orange isn’t right.
Which is why I came to all of you for opinions. I just keep going back and forth!

Love the colour and style of the green dress the best! 🙂

Oh! and I didn’t really want to mix and match because I worry that might be too over the top with dresses this bright.
Thanks again for your help!

Just wanted to bump this to see if anyone else had input. Thanks!
