    Do whatever you want! It’s your party and you can do what you want to.  Wink

    All kidding aside, you can probably find a dress you love in moss green, and no problem.  The thing about ivory is that most people look good in it, that’s probably why they suggested it.  Your bridesmaids can wear whatever other colors are in your palette.  No worries 🙂

    Woah, breathe. 😀 Lovely dress, by the way!

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with moss green for your second dress. I think vintage palettes usually run to combinations of neutral – tan/ivory and muted pinks and purples – but I’ve also seen a few interpretations of “vintage”.

    Have you tried putting together an inspiration board to help you sort out your vision?

    I think silvery blues and creams or moss greens and creams would be awesome. That just desn’t seem like a one color dress to me. I’m sure it’ll be fabulous whatevery ou choose.

    @secondchances: I think the bridesmaid gown is themed well, but the gown looks wide.  Hard to tell with the model sitting.  Would you be okay with that? What about using a peasant-style top (a bit more breathable and similar to your top)? I suppose it depends on the material it is made out of, but the dresses may be hot or uncomfortable with a collar to the neck.  

    If you are using the colors in the dress above and using the bridesmaid dress as above, what about moss green with a darker sash (dark moss or forest green?) and/or cream with a dark sash (copper?)? Did you want to have the dresses be a different color on top and bottom?

    @secondchances: I also found another website with more casual dresses but they specialize in “vintage” looks: http://www.bluevelvetvintage.com/ Again, depends on what you’re looking for but they break their stock down by “era” or style of dress.

    Put yourself in moss green and put the bridesmaids in ivory! 🙂
