Oh honey, yeah, I guess that’s what you get for being nice. First, from here on out, remember it’s your wedding. You were nice in giving them ANY options at all. If they can’t pick from those, they can not be in the wedding. How different is the shade on the one girl who doesn’t match? If it’s too bad I’d focus on trying to find her something else. Then, problem solved. If it’s not too bad, what about a shawl? Or maybe bows on the tea-length dresses and train on the MOH? Did they already buy their shoes and bags? Just some things to think about, all of which depend on how far you are willing to go.

Maybe try to find a broach.  I bought my maid of honor a broach for her dress because I wanted her to stand out amoung the other BM’s.  I was not as nice as you 🙂  I chose the dress, the style and the color, but I also paid for it.  The only thing I asked is that they all wore silver heels and classicly styled jewelry.  And I actually took care of that because as my bridal party gifts I bought them all matching necklaces and earrings. Even the simplest things can tie it all together.  Maybe if you have a florist you can work with get them to cut a few extra stems and have the hair dresser weave the stems into their do’s?

Can you ask one of the two BMs to switch their dress (same style) to the opposite color?

Any chance you can post photos of the dresses so we can see the style and maybe some idea as to what the colors are?
