So, I am strongly considering doing khaki/beige or taupe for my BM’s but it’s difficult to find dresses that aren’t too light (champange) or too dark (brown-ish). Had anybody had/is anybody having Neutral colored BM’s in their wedding that can share pics and/or recs for where I can find good options? I’m looking to keep the dresses under $200. So far I’ve found After Six dresses in Taupe, but that’s about it.

I would check at macy’s, they have a whole bunch of neutral colored dresses.

Try J.Crew. They have sales every now and then that would bring the dresses under $200. Also, sometimes the lighter colors are on sale during winter months. Good luck!

This sounds like a really nice color! Wish I could help with the finding.

I have a pinterest board with bridesmaids dresses I like, some are more pink, but most of them are beige. Hope that helps a little!

@ckow85: No suggestions unfortunately, but I’m running into the same issue! Didn’t want brown because I didn’t feel like it was enough contrast with the guys, so a taupe/cappucino is exactly what I have in mind. Hard to find!! Will have to check out JCrew and Macy’s, although I think they might be too expensive for my BMs.
What colors are you planning with the dresses? We’re doing fall colors…ivory/champagne/browns with orange/yellow/green flowers. What do you think? Will get dk brown cardigans for the girls too!

It can be a tough color to pull off. Why don’t you show your girls a few swatches that you like and tell them to chose their own dresses. It will look coordinated and individually they’ll all look great and feel comfortable.

This is the dress I chose. I tried it on myself and I really truly love the color, that is the ONLY reason I purchased it..lol. It is a silvery taupe, you would really have to see it to understand it. My Bridesmaid or Best Man will not be wearing the shawl cover thing bc I don’t like it.

@ckow85: i bought my BMs convertible dresses at Von Vonni called “transformer dresses”. there was a groupon sale, so hopefully you’d come across another one again. they have a few neutral shades to choose from: nude, almond, or taupe. that is, if you like the convertible dress for your BMs. =)
