- Wedding: August 2013
I really could use some advice. My favorite color is turquoise, and my fiancee’s is red. We originally wanted to do these colors as our wedding theme (see picture below)
I work at David’s Bridal, and we dont really have the bright turquoise color that I am looking for. We have several colors that are similar but not exactly what I had in mind. Pool blue is too light, Oasis too dark. Mermaid and Jade are both too green. I have looked at about 7 other bridal stores and none have exactly what I am looking for. With these colors, if you get the turquoise too green it looks like christmas or too blue it looks like fourth of july. (My wedding is in August!) With bright dresses like these I was just going to do simple flowers – either all one color red or all ivory or something of the sort, since our dresses were so brightly colored.
Since I have been looking for 6 months and still have yet to fall in love with a dress for a bridesmaid style, I have decided to open my options. My next idea is just to do different shades of gray dresses (see picture below) and accent with our two favorite colors. The only thing I do worry about with this is the fact that it is a lot of gray, since we wanted our guys in grey suits. I love the look of the grey dresses but dont want our pictures to be blah! I would definitely do bright flowers with these but I really cant decide if I should keep looking for the right turquoise or if I should just do grey and get the dresses ordered!
