I like the tea-length dresses.  They all seem pretty, but hard to choose because the pictures don’t have a lot of detail. 

Your wedding sounds gorgeous!

With seven bridesmaids, I think you could even choose 3 colors if you wanted! Maybe have your bridesmaids in the blues and greens and your Maid/Matron of Honor in the fresco or rosewater, then just go with very simple ivory bouquets as a common element. My girls were just given paint swatches in 3 shades of green (I just didn’t want the Bridesmaid dress stress! I have enough stress planning a wedding and dealing with a class of second graders every day!) and are buying their own dresses, but I told my sister (MOH) that she can get a green, platinum or champagne dress if she wants to stand apart a little.


I agree with tatrifon – sounds gorgeous! I think all of the colors go well enough together that you can do whatever combination you decide and avoid it looking piecemeal, but also avoid matchy-matchy. 🙂

How did the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress shopping end up going for you?  When you saw things in person did it make your decision easier?

I’ll second the long dress idea for Fall. We’re getting married in October too & if I were having bridesmaids– which actually I might cave & end up going with– I’d choose a long dress.

Your wedding sounds wonderful 🙂 Can’t wait to see what you chose!

So pretty!  With 7 BMs you have tons of options.  I think you should have them all pick different shades of blue.  Those really popped out at me.  The pink might be too light, and there’s only one green so it might look weird if you have all nice blue shades and then a green. 

I wanted my BMs to all wear different dresses, but they insisted on wearing the same b/c they want to LOOK like BMs and not like a dressed-up guest.  They wanted to be able to be picked out of a crowd as BMs. 

Our wedding is also in October.  My Maid/Matron of Honor just told me she’ll be 8 months pregnant at the wedding.  That’s a good idea you have to wait to get her dress. 

GL with your choice.  Do you have a blog or a bio?  I’d love to see what other ideas you have planned.  I just love your color scheme!!
