@CountryGrl914:  can you show us some examples of those colors you described?  It’s hard for me to visualize the difference between olive and sage.

Yes, it would be helpful if you posted pictures of those colors (esp olive vs. sage).

For your BMs, it’s really up to you! But I think a blue-green would blend into your brown/green color scheme much better than a deep steel blue.

For your decor, the sky is the limit! But I would say that if you want your decor to be nature-inspired, don’t limit yourself to just one or two colors… The real outdoors is full of color! You should check out http://www.theperfectpalette.com/ to get inspired!

Here are some palettes that I think would look super pretty for what you’re describing:

“Sage” generally has more blue undertones while “olive” has brown undertones.

Why are you looking to make the bridesmaids’ dresses different from your main color scheme? It seems like it would make sense to have them in the color scheme rather than contrasting with it.
