So my sister in law didn’t get over to David’s Bridal in time to get my two nieces dresses from there to match the bridesmaids – apparently they require 15 weeks for the little ones.
Anyway, since I can’t get the exact same green, I’m thinking of going with orange as the bridesmaid bouquets will be all orange and mine will be orange and white. Fiance will be wearing the lighter gray suit and the groomsmen, the darker gray.
What do you think? Does it work? I’m 7 weeks out and I’m freaking a little! Sorry if it’s super gigantic – I made it in a word doc.

Thank you ladies! I really like it but my mom had a weird reaction so I’ve been second guessing myself!

i really like the orange dress. perhaps your mom thought it was too bright of an orange? the green dresses are lovely BTW! maybe ask your mom what her reservations to the dress were? does she just not like orange? perhaps if it wasnt as bright (because the green isn’t bright), she might like it better?

@mrsrangrang: I do think she was thinking it would be more of a burnt orange, but I feel like this goes better with the flowers. And the only burnt orange one I’ve found is taffeta and its just not the look we’re going for.
Plus I’d already been having a meltdown about all of this with her seeming disapointed that I didn’t like that burnt orange one, thus I felt bad for not liking it. I think she knows I’ve feeling overwhelmed and wants me to sleep on it. I definitely will – I’m not going to order them this second or anything, but I needed some outside opinions as well.
Thanks for posting!

jeanie13 perhaps after she has slept on it too she might adjust to it aswell! my mum (im aussie so here its mum lol), hated the idea of mismatched bridesmaid dresses. i sent her an inspiration board of what i was thinking andafter a week she loved it.. now she has been showing me all sorts of different dresses that would work together. But it did take her time! lol
and i totally understand about the flower girls dresses. I’m making my own because i hate everything that i see and for the price of the ones i do like i cannot justify spending more money on their dresses than i did on my own.. (not quite but close lol)!!
hope it works out for you!
