Our wedding is in April…colors are blush pink and pale gold…going for kind of an elegant, romantic feel. It will be an evening ceremony and reception, not black tie but relatively formal.
What do you think of the following options?
1. Blush pink dresses, gold shoes & jewelry
2. Let them all pick their own little black dresses, gold shoes
3. Something else??
Please help! They all want to know what to start looking for & I feel clueless! I should also add, I like the formality of black but am worried its not spring like.

How about little black dresses, pale pink shoes, and gold jewelry. Like long gold neclace, bracelet, and earrings.

I’m having a spring wedding too and am most likley going with black bridesmaid dresses. I wouldn’t worry about it not being a “springy” color. The great thing about black dresses is that they can all wear different styles but still coordinate…it’s hard to mess up black. Everyone feels beautiful and it will most likely be a dress they can wear again and again, not like some Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses that are oviously Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.
I voted for something different in your poll. What about all balck dresses that coordinate but aren’t matchy matchy, but they all wear different colored shoes? The pictures would be adorable! Jsut a thought…

I voted but I just have to say, I love your “name” and avatar. I am too a diet coke addict.

I really like the idea of all black dresses that are not the exact same but coordinate and each girl wears diferent colored shoes. I think that would be way cute!

I don’t really think that black would emphasize your theme of romantic enough.. I think you should stick with the light pink dresses and change the shoe color.. maybe ivory shoes??? i know it’s a no no to have anyone else where an ivory or white dress to someone elses wedding but I think ivory shoes would look really cute for your bridesmaids.. they would kinda match you a little and it would just be a little more neutral than your original gold idea but all in all pink dress, ivory shoes would still go with your pink and gold romantic theme 🙂

@NYshoppingirl: & @stephanie63087: glad to know I am not the only spring bride considering black dresses! I like the idea of fun shoes & or sashes, jewelry, etc. to tie in our color scheme.
@lulu mae: I definitely see what you mean about not emphasizing the romantic enough. Ivory shoes are definitely an option…because the wrong color pairing of pink and gold could look terrible. That’s kind of why I started thinking about the black in the first place.
@future mrs kirsch: ha, thank you! I would definitely not make it through this process without my daily DC.
Thanks everyone for your input. It has given me a lot to think about. I’m going to see what the girls think too…I just feel bad because I know they want direction from me and I can’t make up my mind! Agh!
