I have been looking on and off for a while and can’t decide on bridesmaid dresses! My fiancee and I (both ladies who will be wearing “ivory” colored dresses!) have 6 bridesmaids each and we want to have each side wear similar dresses in a particular color (mine in one color, hers in another) but so far we haven’t found two colors we love together. I haven’t seen too many photos of weddings with two brides who both have bridesmaids, so would love to hear ideas! We are getting married outdoors in the fall.

Do you want to stick with fall colors or is any color combo okay?
Do you like pastels or more jewel tones?
Bright colors vs subtle/neutrals?
Do you and your Fiance have a favorite color?

You don’t have to use two completely different colors. You could use shades of the same color.

I like navy, especially for fall, and tons of colors go well with it – a pale blue, emerald green, a pale green, gray, blush, coral, champagne, etc. would all work IMO.
Do you have a picture of your venue? That might help posters come up with better/more ideas.

I love julies1949’s suggests of different shades of the same color, the pictures she posted are gorgeous.
We are doing grey dresses for the female members of our wedding party (MOH and 2 groomswomen). Maybe you could do one side in a neutral color and the other side in non-neutral color like grey & yellow or black & red.

Would you consider all the girls picking a shade within a color scheme or do you want the sides to be clearly separated? I think that would look nice as opposed to them being starkly different.

Thanks everyone! @julies1949 I hadn’t thought of doing shades of a color, but I really like that idea! I will look into it. Maybe shades of fall colors or shades of blue would be nice?
@mrsyeti I don’t have a picture but the ceremony will be outdoors in a grassy field with (hopefully!) fall colors/leaves as a backdrop.
@sweetness09 I think we want the sides to be clearly separated – but I think you’re right and what I don’t like about all the combos I’ve tried is that the colors are SO different.

Oh I LOVE the idea of doing different shades! Do you have a color palatte for the wedding picked out yet?

I think something like this could be really pretty:
