So I had originally planned on doing a beach themed wedding but it was just getting way to hard to execute and to be perfectly honest I just wasn’t loving the turquoise and white together anymore. Not that it isn’t beautiful, because it definitely is, it just isn’t quite what I had wanted.
So I’ve decided that I would really love to have yellow bridesmaid dresses, soft pretty yellow, with bright fuschia and white bouquets and use fuschia as an accent colour. I really love this idea. So here’s the problem… one of my bridesmaids seems to really hate the idea and I have a feeling at least one more will too. The one who hates it has really fair skin and dark brown hair and she thinks the dress will look really bad on her. Obviously we will have to try it on, but what if I love it on 4 of my 5 bridesmaids but she hates it? And a simple idea would be to swap out the yellow and the pink and have pink as the dress colour with yellow accents, however one of my other bridesmaids is getting married before me and is having fuschia be her main colour and I don’t want it to look like I copied her.
So Bees, Do I pick the yellow that I love and ignore my one bridesmaids opinion or do I stick with the turquoise to make everyone else happy when I’m not really in love with it. Please help me make a decision! 🙂 Thanks!

That’s tough. I would definitely recommend having all the girls try on the dresses to see how they look before you start worrying too much about it. As someone who is very fair skinned (and brown hair too), I know that most shades of yellow look pretty terrible on me, so I don’t really wear yellow… ever. I do think it’s good to try to include the BMs in the decision about the dress they will be wearing, but you may never be able to please all 5 people.

Thanks! I think I picked a shade of yellow that would actually look nice, but we will just have to wait to see. The other thing I wanted to add is that Im going to let them all chose their own dresses (within the same designer to ensure they are the same colour) so that way I would at least let everyone have a dress that they are actually comfortable in and they had some say in the decision.

@summerlove22 i had the EXACT same problem! and i say go with the yellow dresses! if that’s what you really want! i did and have not regretted it, the one Bridesmaid or Best Man that was really against it said “only for you, would i buy/wear this dress”

My sister is going to have the same problem. Her colors will be orange and yellow and I know both of those colors will look horrendous on me. But I will be keeping my mouth shut because it’s her wedding, her colors, etc. etc.
Go with what you like!

Well I photoshopped some yellow dresses onto pics of my bridesmaid and it actually looks cute, in my opinion. So far 3 of the Bridesmaid or Best Man have loved it so thats a good sign 🙂 Thanks for the support!

I’m a Bridesmaid or Best Man in my friend’s wedding and wearing a dress color i absolutely hate and which totally washes me out, (i’m also really fair). But you know what? It’s her wedding and her vision and I want to make her happy. I’ll deal with an unflattering color for one day….HER day.
Go with the dress color which makes you happy. You’r Bridesmaid or Best Man is one of your closest friends, (I presume), so she should honestly suck it up and keep quiet.

I had that problem with my wedding, If she is a true friend she will understand that its your wedding and that is what you want. You dont want to regret something like that. ITS YOUR WEDDING. Trust me its the one time it should be about you.
