To be honest, I think they look great as they are – they go really well with your dress! Perhaps a black sash might make them look more like yours but, to be honest, I think they’re fine as they are 🙂

@leesa_s:  You could include anemones (white flowers with black centers) in their bouquets like this:

It appears that they’ve wrapped the stems with black ribbon too.

What are your wedding colors? Do you have an accent color?

For instance, my wedding colors are ivory & black, with hot pink/fuschia accents. Therefore, my dress is ivory, my bridesmaids will be in ivory as well [ill have a big poofy dress, there’s won’t have poof], groom & groomsmen in black tuxes. Ivory with pink accented bouquets/bouts/flowers.

@leesa_s:  Forgot to add that bridesmaids in black peep-toe pumps would be super cute too.

Hmmm, I’m not sure I like the idea of black sashes because I feel like they would be mimicking your look too much – and although you want them to coordinate, you don’t really want them to look like you.  I think black accessories would look great though.  Black shoes, a chunky black necklace, and black accents on the flowers (I love anemones for that look) or wrapping a black ribbon on their bouquet.  Is black one of the wedding colors overall?

What about getting the bridesmaids to wear yellow peep-toe heels, or pumps? That way they will match the flowers, and then their flowers can have a black ribbon around the stalks?

What about a black flower brooch pinned to the waistband? Then the accent is in the same place as yours but it’s not mimicking it.

I love the idea of black sashes for everyone! I think its a great way to unify you as a group but of course you still stand out because you are the bride!

Also, black pumps would be awesome with the black sashes!

Or you could get them (or have them choose!) a black statement necklace like these:





You could even make your own with beads of your choosing!


I like the idea of letting the girls pick their own black shoes and black statement necklace cuz then they have timeless waredrobe pieces they could definitely use again.


if you want to gift them, find one you like so they all match OR DIY them!

Hope that helps!

The black jewelry would look great with those dresses!  It would complement your dress and offset the teal.

I like the idea of using black jewelry.. I wouldn’t put a black sash on their dress ( although that would be cuuuuteee! ) I think it would mimick your dress too much… What about adding teal to your jewelry to sychronize some??

Beautiful gowns BTW!
