My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses as of right now I believe are going to be alternating colors of a Truffle and Watermelon with a sash of the opposite color to tie them together. Today I was shopping online and found these awesome deals on Swarovski bracelets. From $3-$6 a piece. They are beautiful and bold and I ended up getting 1 diff type for each girl.
The problem is that they all have red in them. I was thinking this was fine bc then I can get them each a small red crystal teardrop necklace. But now I think it might be too much …
Im posting pics of the dress colors NOT ACTUAL dresses and of the bracelets. Please, I need honest opinions. Did I complete screw up here?!

I dont think you screwed up. The bracelets are beautiful and really different. While, yes, they do have red in them, the dark gold and pink still ties in your colors. I think that the red will be a really cool pop of a different color against your dresses.

Those bracelets are beautiful – I’d love to get one as a gift. I don’t think there’s any need to try to coordinate with a red necklace.

Oh wonderful! I was just thinking what if I did pink and red boquets as well? Would this be too much? And if so, what color boquets would you recommend?
If I dont do a coordinating necklace, what should I do for the necklace then? Or no necklace?

I would just do the bracelets, the red is just enough to make them pop but you don’t want too much. They are very pretty, lucky ladies.

They’re beautiful! The variety of colors is great – it’ll pick up the dresses without being too matchy-matchy. I agree with a previous poster that no necklace might look best. Do you have pics of the actual dresses you can post?

The bracelets are beautiful! And I like the bit of red in them…as other posters have said, it’ll be a nice “pop” of color without being too matchy-matchy.
So to keep from going overboard on the red color accent, I wouldn’t have them wear red necklaces or have red flowers in their bouquets. Everything’s going to look fantastic!

Not at all. The bracelets all have pink in them, too, which will tie in with the watermelon, and anything will go wit the truffle dresses. You chose well!

Bracelets are gorgeous! Totally match the colours of the dresses. You could do the flowers too – would look great. But I’m sure lots of different flowers would go well. For necklaces – I’d say either a pearl necklace in pink or beige or some kind of a drop necklace. Good luck!!

@Corykru: I actually found them on ebay. I have won 4 so far and still waiting on 3 more that should end shortly. I have gotten them on average for $4.38 a piece. I was just going to get them for the BMs but I love them so much I have to get them for the 2 jr. BMs too! And maybe one for me as well … lol
@Totes Magotes: The dress style is like the truffle dress I posted. I am basically just looking at a few different variations of that style and have yet to decide.
Thank you so much for all of your feedback! Purchasing those bracelets is a bit more bold than I would normally go and now I am so glad that is the route I chose!

@baileysbride2be: I love ebay! I always find excellent stuff on there as well :-). I would definitely get one for yourself. Every time you wear it, it would be a reminder of your wedding :-). Congrats on your wedding, I wish you the happiest wedding planning :-).

I think those are really pretty! The red is a nice accent color for the pink and the brown, and keeps things from being too dichromatic.
