We are getting married in Chicago in late October. The weather here could be 70 and sunny or 30 and rainy. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids matching cardigans to wear at the wedding if it was cold and it would be part of their larger gift from us too.

It sent before I finished posting. Sorry!
They are wearing long black dresses and I attached the picture of their bouquet above. It will be white cala lillies instead of pink.
I’m debating what color cardigan to buy. I’m between light yellow, light pink or light green. I’m worried the green might clash with the orchids. What are your thoughts? will those colors be too light for fall?

I have two suggestions. First, I would consider getting a pashmina rather than a cardigan for a few reasons: It’s easier to throw on or off depending on whether they are cold or not, you don’t have to worry about getting the right size, and it’s a bit more formal looking to match the long dresses than a cardigan would be. As far as colors, I wouldn’t worry too much about it being appropriate for the season. I would just pick what will look best with their outfits and flowers. Green is probably my favorite option of the colors you listed, but you could always consider sticking with black too.

I think any of those colors would work just fine. You might want to pick the color based on your other colors and how prominent you want them to be, or based on the girls. I think light pink would look really nice, but I might be biased because I LOVE pink. If you pick yellow just be sure it is light enough so you don’t have a bumblebee look.

i agree that the green might wash out the orchids. what are your colors? either light pink or light yellow would look good…but you might wanna go with pink to avoid the bumble bee look.

Thanks everyone! Our colors are black and white and we are doing a few pops of green in our florals. I wanted to do something a bit more fun than just black and white and I keep leaning towards the light pink…
