JSM1103 my dress is from Sorrento and midgley in champagne and its everything i wanted.
however, my colour theme was going to be grey Bridesmaid or Best Man with the pop of colour being yellow with the men in black suits. my future mother in law has been weaving flowers from flax and they are beautiful and have faded to a lovely corn colour. they gave me the inspiration for having a rustic natural theme.
the problem now is that the ladies, mums, Bridesmaid or Best Man and sister now think that a caramel colour would be better than the grey. i think it may be too similar to my champagne…and then whats happens to my yellow flowers….??
it’s a sept wedding but didn’t want to do the traditional autumn colours. my twin sister had brown bridesmaids so i definately do not want choc brown.
any suggestions/photos? 🙂

I still think that the grey would look beautiful! You can still kind of tie in the champagne of your dress to them AND still use the beautiful pale yellow flowers! Even a bluish/grey would look great with the yellow and champagne! I do agree that the caramel bridesmaid dresses might be too close to the color of your dress if they are too light and if you go darker, then you’ll be close to the autumn look that you dont want! I looked up your dress and its beautiful BTW!!

Anabri thank you for the reply and the pics. i’m still way confused have started to consider jade/sage green. i’ve asked the bridal shop to send me a swatch as we’re going Bridesmaid or Best Man shopping on sat. i’m hoping for some inspiration on the day…. i still have time to pull it all together.
There are not many images for champagne dresses with Bridesmaid or Best Man. i’ll keep looking.
if anyone out there has any ideas, crazier the better i would really really appreciate you adding them! xx

I have the same dress as you!! i looooove it 🙂
I was in a similar situation trying to figure out how to tie in the colours with the bridal party and someone said to me that it doesn’t matter, you are the bride, nothing has to match you. Which i totally agree with. Of course the style of the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and feel to the wedding is cohesive with my dress but my Bridesmaid or Best Man are in purple and the Groomsmen are in grey suits. The champagne of my dress doesn’t blend in anywhere and that’s fine by me – i want to stand out
I say go with the grey Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

I just got married in the JSM1103! It is such a gorgeous dress, I got so many comments about it! I bought it new so I am looking to SELL now. It’s a US size 6 (8-10 AU) champagne ivory and light gold… It’s just been listed on smartbride.com.au if anyone is interested!
My bridesmaids looked stunning in autumn green (style 2789 from the DESSY After Six line)… I hope the picture works!
The groomsmen had matching bronze elements in their suits – it all tied in very well! Had a very natural rustic and vintage feel…
Thanks, Magdalena from Sydney

I have just logged on having started this thread and have been so busy i’m only getting back now. Thanks for the contributions ladies; your advice is great!
i went Bridesmaid or Best Man shopping and have chosen a purple and am going to the suit shop fri and am hoping that a grey suit will go with our colours! Mrs M i am sure we are on the same thinking. i actually brought a swatch shopping for Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and very few colours went with it; but the purple/wine was lovely and complimented it beautifully.
I am now debating the veil birdcage; i went today and tried on both; my sister and the mothers would love the veil however i love the birdcage….the dress has so much detail i don’t want to cover it and a short veil will make me shorter looking…
i have also tried gold shoes with it and they are lovely; the Bridesmaid or Best Man will wear gold shoes too. think it will be beautiful.
Magda your photo is gorgeous and you’re so right the green is stunning with it; i love the suits too….will definately keep this in mind on fri!

We are dress twins! I am looking for shoes and not sure what colour. BMs are going to wear black, lol. Just because we don’t have colours and that’s easy. Gold shoes…*love*. Do you have any pics of the shoe colour with the dress? I can’t find our dress in real life pics anywhere (to see the gold tones) to compare to accessories (clutch, etc). I am just wearing (fake) champagne coloured pearls.

i have found shoes at office; see the link. the girls are def wearing the silver version with their purple dresses. i’ll need the check the gold with the dress as they may be too yellow gold with it.
my granny has pearls that i think will be great with it and my borrowed dare i say old too? lol
have you decided on veil yet? i’ve ordered a birdcage but also have my sisters….will know what i’ll go for end may when my dress comes in.
yours is not far away now at all; please let me know how your accessories are going!

Hey girls, I’m sure you’ve already figured out what you’re doing, but I just got married in JSM1103 3 weeks ago, and my Bridesmaids wore aubergine purple – like my shoes! It was beautiful. The purple offset the champagne beautifully! I have some sneak pics of my dress up if anybody else is looking for pictures of JSM1103 in action!
