I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed looking for orange (not bright but not a dark burnt orange) bridesmaid dresses. I have seen a lot that I have liked but they are short length and I would want them to be floor length. I haven’t been so lucky to find many floor length dresses in a nice orange since they tend to look more like a coral color. *sighs*
Any suggestions Bees? I would really appreciate it!

I was a bridesmaid in an October wedding and we wore Alfred Angelo’s ‘Burnt Orange’. I’m not sure if you’ve seen it in person, but it’s not as dark as I had expected it to be.

I had the same trouble too. I ended up going to some bridal stores and checking out the color swatches in person. The photos on the internet are not accurate all the time. Another way to start is just doing a simple google images search for orange dresses. You might find a shade you like there that will lead you to a good dress designer.

If you don’t you mind risking online shopping, you could googled and searched for some online shop where maybe you could find what you want. I bought my bm’s dresses online, not a bad shopping experience.

My girls wore Alfred Angelo’s burnt orange and I thought it was stunning!
ETA: I should add that the color changed depending on the lighting. I dont know what it was but the dresses look much brighter here than they did indoors. I didn’t mind it since I thought both looked nice but some brides wouldn’t like it.
Here’s a more close-up shot…

I did a quick search on my favourite Bridesmaid or Best Man dress resource, eBay, and came up with these, among others:

You ladies are AWESOME! I don’t feel as bad as I doo anymore knowing it’s just not me who has experienced a hard time finding a nice bridesmaid dresses in orange.
@random7890: Would you happen to have a picture of your Bridesmaid or Best Man dress? I would love to see it!
@heliabel: I have looked online and all the ones that seem to have the “perfect” shade of orange seem to be the shorter dresses. However, I did find some designer which I did love such as Alfred Angelo, Impressions, and dresses from Dessy. Thank you for your input 🙂
@carolinaw: I have considered it but I am a bit afraid to order them without knowing how it will look on my BMs. The girls had the same reaction because they want to make sure that the cut of the dress that they pick will flatter their shape and I want that too. I want them to feel comfortable and like the dress since they are buying them. What I have thought was finding the brands and have them try them on and if I could purchase it online then I’d go that route.
@UpstateCait: I really like your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses! What fabric are the dress…silk? These dresses are the shade of orange I have been looking for. I am def checking Alfred Angelo!
@NewfieBullet: Love the first dress A LOT! I have to show it to my girls. I’m pretty sure they would love it and I think it will flatter all of their figures.
Thanks so much Bees!!!! 🙂
