Some of the pictures are so small it’s hard to see the details…but, I love the chartreuse dresses! I love the dramatic shoulder bow!  I think that color would look so pretty with those flowers in bouquet picture. Bright pops of summer colors! I think that touches of silver that you added make it look really chic and modern imo.

I think given your venue that a blue Bridesmaid or Best Man dress is the way to go. Chartreuse can be a hard color to wear and since it’s such a strong color it competes a little with the blue. I think the green hydrangeas and the soft greens in the florals will bring that side of it in beautifully. You could even do a green bouttoniere if you want to make that color pop more.

I like that the blue of the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress is a bit on the purply/navy side, rather than the more watery blue of the chandeliers (goes without being matchy). I really like the pop of pink flowers (as long as it’s not overdone).

Very cool necklace.

The only thing I’d be worried about with those Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses is that they look a bit short. Which might be fine, but some people aren’t comfortable with a shorter skirt.

I think the abundance of neutrals–whites, crystals, browns, grays–will keep the blue and green from being overpowering. Whne I say minimal pink I just mean not every centerpiece with an explosion of fuschia flowers 🙂

@HueysLuda: Yea, 34 is usually fine. I know I’m particularly sensitive to it because I’m 5’9″ and 34″ would hit me about 4-5 inches above the knee 🙂 But if your BM’s are shorter or thinner/younger/don’t care it should be fine.

@HueysLuda: LOL I broke out my tape after reading your comment and 34″ it’s about 2″ above my knee. Definitely “wear again” vs the chartreuse dress, although the low back may put some people off. Maybe some kind of wrap or cute cardigan for after pictures? I would love to see a bigger picure of the centerpieces in the top row! Are those bubbles in the tall vases? Love the Etsy necklace btw!
