eyebeauty:  Obviously you have not chosen a color palette yet, but do you have any vision of what you would like your wedding to look like? Soft, romantic, elegant? Bright, fun, cheerful?

If you want the former, you could look to colors like champagne, taupe, soft coral etc to pick up on the trim on your dress.

For the latter, pick brighter and darker tones

I think it is easier to choose dresses if you have some parameters already in place: Color palette, length, style (do any of your BM’s need straps for a chesty figure?)

For help with a color palette go to http://www.theperfectpalette.com

Scroll down on the right, click on one of the colors you like, and you will see all the palettes they have developed using that color.

Another site is http://www.design-seeds.com    They have lots of palettes developed, or you can create you own using their “search by color value” tool.

Wow, your dress is gorgeous! I’m loving that train, it’s so ornate and lovely!

As for your bridemaids, what about a really soft, pretty gray? Gray, floorlength gowns in chiffon could look really pretty, church appropriate and would compliment your dress nicely. Personally I love sort of monochromatic looks since I tend to think they look extremely classy and elegent.

eyebeauty:  I second the idea for gray or taupe.  Then you can keep your original vision of mint and buttercup in the flowers and other decor (maybe even a sash if you wanted to incorporate it in your bridesmaid apparel, or a shawl if their dresses don’t cover their shoulders).  I think a lot of brides lose their minds trying to find a dress in the exact color to match their table linens, flowers, etc, it’s so much easier to pick a neutral dress and let the other elements of your wedding define your color palette.  PS your dress is gorgeous, I wouldn’t say it’s simple (simply stunning maybe!), the bodice and hem are amazing 🙂
