@AmberAustin: I think the best thing to do would be to just take her and try some dresses on in the color. My base color for my wedding is turquoise (actually Jade in DBs color) and my sister thought that she would hate it. However, once she actually tried on a dress in the color, she realized that it actually complemented her skin tone and would make her and my other Bridesmaid or Best Man really stand out….which is what I wanted. Sometimes it’s a matter of just not being able to visualize how something looks which causes the problems.

It is your big day and i think your sister should wear what you pick. I mean as long as it’s not ugly. My bridesmaids all agreed on a short black cocktail dress with our color ribboned in the middle and tied in a bow in the back. Maybe you could do something like we did if she doesn’t want to wear an all green dress?

My sister hates my colors too. I think it’s just a sister thing :P. I would stand firm. Based on what you’ve said here, your wedding’s going to be lovely and not at all ugly!

No, it won’t be ugly!

It’s a matter of taste, and she thinks her’s is better.

 I would give the guys emerald ties/pocket squares, and keep her in emerald.  Maybe find Emerald shoes for yourself!

First, your wedding will not be ugly. Of course you can ask her to wear a green dress, it’s your wedding. But with the guys in black, you in white and her in emerald green, she is the one who will stand out in your pics.

As an example, look at this pic. Your eye naturally gravitates to the bright green dress on the right:

I think your wedding sounds lovely! As long as you’re not making her spend a fortune on it, I think she should go along with what you ask.

wow that is just rude… I actually love green and black together. it is your wedding, she agreed to be in it so IMO she should wear the color you want her to wear. I think it would be kinda lame if the Bridesmaid or Best Man and Groomsmen wore mostly plack, I thing contrast in pictures is good.
