I think that it looks special and bridal, in the style, will make it stand out.  I think color sounds great and fun.  I would say, just my opinion 2 cents, have your maids wear another color – same level of brightness or pastel, – just a different color.

My dress was light gold and my BMs wore navy. A light orange could be interpreted as gold…

Kate and Pippa wore the same colors.  It was obvious who the bride was.  

Sounds like it would be obvious with you and your Maid/Matron of Honor as well.

I would suggest getting a different color than the bridesmaid. It could be within the same family, but I think having a different color will have you “standout” even more. Like your Fiance said, yours will standout regardless because it will probably be a more elaborate design, alternately if you decide to wear the same color you can give your bridesmaid some type of sash to make your dress pop some more,.

Is it a dark blue? A bright blue? or a soft blue? Do you have a picture of the dress?

I wouldn’t do the same color mainly because even if yours has a train if it was originially meant to be a bridesmaids dress it might not have the same wow factor.

If you did a Robin’s Egg blue dress, what about putting your bridesmaids in Pool or Indigo in a short dress then added an orange crinoline or sash in Persimmon. With orange flowers I think that would look beautiful. Or maybe do the BM’s with something with a pattern.

@Cem0930: I’m wearing a deep red dress and my BMs will be wearing navy blue and white. I think it’s up to you if you want to match. Stylistically it’s probably a good idea (ie my dress is 50s style, so I made sure my Bridesmaid or Best Man were too) but colour isn’t so important. I think it’s whatever you think looks best and whatever you’re comfortable in. People will definitly know who the bride is either way 😉
