    I think it’s completely fine, but I have to admit as a guest my first thought is always that the bridesmaid in the different color is either the maid of honor or some other special position. Would you be planning to have them in a random order? Or dark, light, green? etc

    It might be my monitor, but I don’t care for the middle color with the other two.  It looks more teal/turquoise than green.  The other two look really nice together, but the color of the third doesn’t look like it blends to me.

    I think if it’s only a slight preference, steer her towards the same shade of green as the others.

    I’m like you though in that I wouldn’t be particularly bothered. I have four bridesmaids and two (my sister/MOH and FI’s sister) picked the same dress. My sister picked first and said she honestly wasn’t bothered about FI’s sister wearing the same otherwise I’d have asked FI’s sister to choose something different.

    If it’s easy enough to do and she doesn’t mind I would have her switch to the other colour. The two that are the same colour are also very similar styles with the spaghetti straps, so hers does stand out a bit being a different style and colour.

    I agree, and I think she will stand out in a way that people will assume she is the Maid/Matron of Honor. If she doesn’t feel comfortable with that I would just suggest having all the same shade of green.

    Those colors are goddamn fantastic together. Run with it.

    I dislike the one weird shade in the middle and agree it looks more blue on my screen.

    Unless she is Maid/Matron of Honor I wouldn’t have her wear a different color if the other two are wearing the exact same. I also don’t prefer those two colors together, either. The one looks much more blue/teal to me.

    I think it is very nice of you to be so considerate of your bridesmaids. Hopefully the one wearing the alternative color is the Maid/Matron of Honor. But the real problem is the sage green does not complement the tealish blue. Both are nice colors but do not coordinate well at all together. The color combinateion really is more than awkward it just doesn’t coordinate. The sage green has a greyish undertone that sadly does not sit well with the blue undertones of this teal. Blush, light pink, pale yellow, cream some shades of maybe burgundy coordinate far better with the sage green. I don’t mean to be negative but the colors sadly don’t do much ffore each other.

    While I totally don’t mind that she is in a different color, that particular shade of blue green will stand out quite a bit when paired with the sage of the other two dresses. If you don’t mind the colors together though then I just wouldn’t worry about it. Could she maybe stand in the middle?

    I accidently voted NO instead of YES because of how they were worded, ha my bad for not reading closely. 

    I like the idea of different shades of green but the middle looks too teal/blue to go with the other ones
