Those two colors are really rich looking and pretty together. I would almost worry that the brown would take away from how lovely these two are together.

You should check out Mrs. Mascara’s posts on her bridesmaid dresses, she used the two colors you’ve posted plus a green color.

I agree, i probably wouldn’t throw brown in. I love those 2 colors together though.

For dresses, I’m not really seeing the brown meshing well with those jewel tones. The purple and blue look lovely together, though.

i think just the two colors would look fine. but if you wanted to throw in a third, i like cole b’s idea of using green.

I think you should have a blend of the two base colors (blue and purple) and have each dress vary a shade or two. That way they’ll all coordinate but each girl gets their own personal color. IF that’s too complicated, you could do what I’m doing – my Maid/Matron of Honor is wearing green and all the other bridesmaids are wearing teal – they match, but my Maid/Matron of Honor gets her own special color because she is special to me!

Love the two together! WHat about a teal color? I think that would look really pretty with the cobalt and the purple!

I agree with clarebee.  Teal, purple and cobalt would be great if it fits in with your wedding colors.

I don’t see a problem with just having two colors. By The Way, those are gorgeous colors! If you have 6 BMs, then two colors should work out perfectly. Does the 6 include the MOH? If the Maid/Matron of Honor is the 7th, maybe put her in a third color and put the 6 BMs in blue, purple, blue, purple, blue, purple. But even if the Maid/Matron of Honor is the 7th, I personally wouldn’t add a third color. I would do blue, purple, blue, purple, blue, purple, blue. Your Maid/Matron of Honor could still have a sash on her blue dress, maybe the teal that someone mentioned? Or even black? The four girls could be in the color that is more prominent in your wedding and the other three can be in the secondary color.

I personally think that three colors is too much for the eye to take in. I would stick with two plus those are such beautiful colors, why even add another?

By The Way, do you work with MR or MH? I saw your profile that says you are a direct support worker? I used to work with MR, MH and behavioral disorders. Good times. 🙂
