Probably to much yellow. And you have to have a certain skin tone for yellow to look good. I was going to do a bright yellow. Decided on a belt instead. We’re doing a jade dress, with yellow belt. Sunflowers, white gerber daisies, and billyballs. 

is there another color that might go? Green?

My BM’s are getting a light yellow dress (Daisy Yellow) and the bouquets are going to be a bright orange something (haven’t thought that through yet).  But yeah, I think that’s too much yellow,  the yellow bouquets won’t really “pop” in front of a yellow dress, ya know?

@gogogiraffes: I was going to say a similar thing!  Yellow doesn’t flatter a lot of people (aka – me)

Andwayt eh centres of sunflowers are dark, could you not go with that (maroony-brown) and then add a sash.  My two penneth!

I agree that yellow dresses would be too much. I’d rather go with something to contrast the yellow of the bouquets.

Chocolate brown, or an olive-y green would be nice… to go with the stems or centers of the sunflowers. Even another neutral colour (like taupe or black) would work.

In my head, I’m picturing a two-tone dress, with an ivory top, and chocolate brown skirt.

Something like this:

My girls are wearing a Jade dress with a yellow belt. This isn’t the exact dress they’re wearing but it’s similar.

I fully agree that it will be too much yellow. Definitely at least orange, or you might need to toss in an extra color.  A yellow sash could be pretty!

I agree.  No yellow dresses.  Too much yellow.  I think even a yellow sash would compete with the yellow bouquets the girls are holding.

Here is what orange dresses and sunflowers would look like.  It would look nice.  

But I think blue dresses would look fantastic and really make those yellow sunflowers pop!

i love the blue dresses idea, but then that would make blue one of your colours, which is a contrast to the yellow/orange/sunflower, but blue is gorgeous 🙂

On second thought (after rereading your op) a pale yellow would look nice too.  The sunflowers still pop!  Actually I like the pale yellow better than the orange.  BTW – It was hard to find a pic of pale yellow dresses and sunflower bouquets!
