I love those dresses!  (And I like the bouquet stand-ins, haha!)

What kind of material are they made out of?   (I can’t tell if it’s jersey or woven fabric.)

I agree with zippylef that you just need to accessorize the dress as is to make it ‘bridesmaid-y’.  ie. You could change the sash if you wanted, but I don’t think it’s necessary.  It looks like the sash gets bunched up when it’s worn anyways, so maybe it’s better in matching fabric so that it doesn’t look sloppy if it’s not laying perfectly flat? 

A feather headpiece in your colours would be bridesmaid-y but still casual.  For example, this wedding has yellow and white as the colours, and a casual vibe: http://www.stylemepretty.com/2010/02/25/diy-central-coast-wedding/  Not sure if you like feather headpieces for bmaids, but I love them!

No different sash needed IMO.  This is your perfect opportunity to find jewelry for their gifts!  Find something you like, and then do your bouquets in your other colors-green, white, and yellow! Done! 🙂 Fabulous!

No sash – – Some killer jewelry like an awesome bracelet w/ earings and then fantastic silver/gold/nude heels.   Btw those dresses are stinkin’ adorable!

I agree with the other girls, I wouldn’t add a brightly colored sash, I think it might distract from how pretty and simple the dress is.  I think all you need are some great shoes & jewelry, maybe something in the hair and you’ll be all set!

I think the bridesmaid dress you choose are very pretty.  A metallic heel, a short pearl necklace and a cute colored clutch would be good accessories.  They will look beaautiful!

Looks like you have over a year till your wedding. If you come across something you love better than order those dresses and just use the current dresses for the rehearsal or shower. They are really cute dresses.

This season florals are really in fashion for accessories – what about a big hair flower in your wedding colour?  Or shoes with crystals or big flowers on them?

Great choice of dress for a laid back wedding x

Ooooh I love that dress! Where is it from??

Depending on how formal your wedding is, I think they would look totally cool with big yellow bead necklaces or bracelets, and yellow clutches or something, then nude shoes.

I always think that a group of women at a wedding who are dressed an accessorised in the same way look like bridesmaids, I don’t think it’s the bridesmaidyness of the dresses per se.. 😀

Necklace

or maybe yellow shoes?

I love navy and yellow together!!
